It’s been a year since Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput left for his heavenly abode. And now on his first death anniversary, several members from the Indian film and TV industry took to social media to pay their tributes to the late star.
Actor Kriti Sanon has shared a collage of her pictures with Sushant from their first look test for the movie ‘Raabta’.
“The first time I ever shot with you.. Our look test.. 2 complete strangers, meant to cross each other’s path, For a film that spoke of inexplainable connection, Based in two worlds… Today, it feels so painfully weird to know that you and I are not in the same world anymore.. Still feels like it hasn’t happened for real. Like maybe you are still around and I’ll bump into you somewhere.”Kriti wrote.
“I don’t think it’ll ever sink in.. But i pray that you are happy and at peace in whichever world you are in,” Kriti added.
Kriti and Sushant had reportedly dated each other while working together on ‘Raabta’.
Kriti’s younger sister and singer Nupur Sanon also posted an emotional post in Sushant’s memory. She shared a picture of Sushant and her taking a nap together.
“A year has passed… still can’t believe …Sushi all I hope is that you are safe, at peace just like you look in this pic and smiling like a child up there,” she wrote on Instagram Stories.
Sushant’s ‘Chhichhore’ co-star Shraddha Kapoor took to Instagram Stories and wrote, “Shine on, dearest Sush.”
Shraddha was among the few Bollywood celebs to attend Sushant’s funeral last year.
