California: On the occasion of Independence Day, California State Assembly has recognised Sushant Singh Rajput for his contribution to cinema and the community. Shweta Singh Kirti, the actor’s sister, received the certificate of recognition on his behalf. Sushant was found hanging at his Mumbai home on the morning of June 14.
Shweta Singh Kirti said, “It’s a great privilege for me to accept this honour from California State Assembly, on behalf of my brother, in remembrance and appreciation of his philanthropic work and contributions to Indian cinema. I thank the Assembly members and the Indian American community for their continuous support in these hours of crisis.”
On August 14, Sushant Singh Rajput’s family observed a 24-hour spiritual prayer on two months of the actor’s death. The family had urged people to join them in prayer. A collective minute of silence and prayer will also be observed at 10 am today. Shweta Singh Kirti took to social media to request people to join the family in the Global Prayers.
Sharing a quote from the Bhagavad Gita, Shweta wrote, “It has been 2 months you left us Bhai and we are still fighting to know the truth, to know what actually happened that day. I request you all to please join us for Global 24-hour spiritual and prayer observation for Sushant Singh Rajput, so that the truth prevails and we find justice for our beloved Sushant #GlobalPrayers4SSR #CBIForSSR #Warriors4SSR #justiceforSushantSinghRajput #godiswithus (sic).”
A campaign #JusticeForSushantSinghRajput has been initiated to bring people together to ask for CBI inquiry in the case. Many Bollywood celebrities also took to social media to show their support to this campaign.
While the Mumbai Police declared the death of Sushant Singh Rajput a case of suicide, Sushant’s father, KK Singh, filed a case of abetment to suicide against Rhea Chakraborty and her family in Patna. Rhea and Sushant were in a relationship before the actor died. In his complaint, Singh also accused Rhea of pocketing Rs 15 crore from Sushant’s bank account.
