Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF): Sushant Singh Rajput’s family will set up a foundation in his name to support youthful talent in “areas close to his heart” such as cinema, science and sports. It will be entitled Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF).
The Sushant’s family also announced its decision to turn the late actor’s childhood home in Patna’s Rajiv Nagar area into a memorial for his fans.
The announcements were issued in a statement on his Terahvin (13th day of demise), where they have expressed this desire as a mark of keeping their beloved “Gulshan” alive in the hearts of his fans.
“Goodbye Sushant! The world’s Sushant Singh Rajput was absolutely Gulshan to us. He was free-spirited, loquacious and incredibly radiant. He was inquisitive about just everything. He dreamed without restraints and chased those dreams with the heart of a lion. He smiled generously. He was the pride and inspiration of the family. His telescope was his most prized possession, through which he fondly gazed at the stars.”
“We can’t convince ourselves to accept that we wouldn’t get to hear his gentle laughs anymore. That we wouldn’t behold his sparkling eyes again. That we wouldn’t perceive his endless rants about science again. His loss has created a permanent, glaring void in the family that will never be filled.”
“He passionately embraced and cherished every unique one of his fans. We thank you all for showering our Gulshan with so much love. To honor his memory and legacy, the family has decided to set up a Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation (SSRF) to support young talents in areas close to his heart—cinema, science and sports.”
“His childhood home in Rajiv Nagar, Patna will be turned into a memorial. We will put his personal memorabilia and belongings there, that include thousands of books, his telescope, flight-simulator, etc. for his fans and admirers. From now on, we intend to maintain his Instagram, Twitter and Facebook page as legacy accounts to keep his memories alive. We once again thank you all for the thoughts and prayers,” refers to the statement released by Sushant’s family.
Sushant Singh Rajput passed away at his Mumbai residence on June 14. His postmortem report stated his death remain a suicide.
