Director Shekhar Kapur, who had signed Sushant Singh Rajput for his ambitious venture Paani, has mourned the actor’s untimely demise. Kapur took to his official Twitter handle and opened up on the actor’s demise. His tweet at this crucial time has evoked several questions.
Sushant Singh Rajput had reportedly committed suicide at his Bandra residence in Mumbai on Sunday. The postmortem of the actor has been conducted at Mumbai’s Dr RN Cooper Municipal General Hospital. As per the reports, the actor suffered asphyxia due to hanging, which is stated to be the provisional cause of death.
As per initial reports from the police, Sushant was suffering from depression for the past six months.
In a new tweet, the filmmaker said that the actor was in ‘pain’ and would ‘weep on (his) shoulder’ because of being let down by certain people.
“I knew the pain you were going through. I knew the story of the people that let you down so bad that you would weep on my shoulder. I wish Iwas around the last 6 months. I wish you had reached out to me. What happened to you was their Karma. Not yours. #SushantSinghRajput,” he wrote on Twitter.

Perhaps the world was not up to your beliefs.. you should not have gone like this …but then you were an old wise soul in a restless young body. Often the heavens cannot handle that ..”

It’s unbelievable .. Both Manoj Bajpayee and I are devastated by the news of Sushant’s passing. It’s unbelievable. In light of that we have decided to postpone our insta live chat on Directors and Actors. And instead tomorrow do a tribute to Sushant by two people that worked with him and grew to love and respect him as a human being and as a terrific actor. I never did a film with Sushant, but rehearsed with him for a few months on Paani, before Yashraj decided to drop the project, and of course Manoj co started with Sushant in that amazing film, Son Chidiya. Tomorrow 8 pm. Insta live. Manoj Bajpayee and I. On Sushant the Actor, The intellect, The friend. #sushantsinghrajput #actor #manojbajpayee @bajpayee.manoj
Shekhar and Sushant were supposed to collaborate on the ambitious film, Paani, which got shelved in 2015 after Yash Raj Films backed out as the producers.
