A young Bollywood heartthrob lauded for his portrayal of cricket star M.S. Dhoni on the silver screen has died, Mumbai police said Sunday.
“Police found Sushant Singh Rajput’s body at his residence Sunday afternoon,” Mumbai police spokesman Pranaya Ashok told AFP, confirming that the 34-year-old had taken his own life.
Rajput, renowned for his numerous hits on the big and small screens, reportedly battled depression.
He passed away just a few days after the shock death of his former manager Disha Salian.
“It pains us to share that Sushant Singh Rajput is no longer with us,” Rajput’s management team said in a statement.
