Rhea Chakraborty has been facing much flak from Sushant’s fans, besides battling numerous rumours, social media hate and the controversies surrounding his death. The fact that Sushant had invested in a company Vividrage Rhealityx, named after her last year (2019) dealing in artificial intelligence and experiential technology, furthered her involvement in the controversies. She was also interrogated extensively by the Mumbai police.
Sushant’s ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande too shared her first post. Having prayed for him at home, she posted a pic of a lit oil lamp with flowers, and shared the words, ‘CHILD OF GOD’.
Director of Sushant’s soon-to-release film Dil Bechara and good friend Mukesh Chhabra too took to instagram to share an emotional note. He posted saying that it’s been a month now and no phone call will ever come again.
Veteran basketball player Reggie Miller took to Twitter to share a loving wish for Sushant, who’s seen sporting Miller’s game jersey and doing some of the sports star’s signature moves in the hit title track of Dil Bechara, which also happens to be the actor’s last dance number ever. “His memory and these moves will live on, Gone But Not Forgotten…” said Reggie Miller for Sushant.
Meanwhile, even as the police have so far ruled out foul play in the actor’s demise with autopsy reports confirming asphyxia due to hanging as the cause of death, the matter is still under investigation.
