MUMBAI, June 14 - Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging at his Bandra apartment on Sunday, police said. He was 34. �He has committed suicide at his residence in Bandra. He was found hanging today. We are investigating,� Manoj Sharma, additional commissioner of police, Western Region, said.
Sources from the Bandra police said on the basis of primary information, a case of accidental death report will be registered. No suicide note was found from the spot, they said.
Significantly, in his last screen appearance Chhichhore, Rajput played the role of a father who conveys the message of hope and affirmation to his son after he attempts suicide.
An engineering dropout, Rajput was inclined towards dancing when he was a student at Delhi Technological University. He soon enrolled in choreographer Shiamak Davar�s dance classes and later joined acting guru Barry John�s classes.
It was television that gave him his breakout role as the coy and mild-mannered Manav in soap opera Pavitra Rishta, which ran from 2009 to 2011. Two years later, he made his foray into films with Kai Po Che! in 2013.
He has starred in movies such as Shuddh Desi Romance, Raabta, Kedarnath and Sonchiriya but his most prominent role came as cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the 2007 biopic MS Dhoni: The Untold Story.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi mourned Rajput�s death, remembering him as a �bright young actor� whose �rise in the world of entertainment inspired many�. � PTI
