Sushant Singh Rajput (January 21, 1986 – June 14, 2020) was an Indian actor, dancer, television personality, entrepreneur, and Bollywood philanthropist. Rajput began his career with television series. Her first show was the romantic drama of Star Plus Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil (2008), followed by an award-winning performance in the popular soap opera Zee TV Pavitra Rishta (2009-2011).

Rajput made his film debut in buddy drama Kai Po Che! (2013), for which he received a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. He then starred in the romantic comedy Shuddh Desi Romance (2013) and as a regular detective in the action thriller Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! (2015). Its most profitable releases came with a supporting role in PK satire (2014), followed by the titular role in sports biopic M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016). For his performance in the latter, he received his first nomination for the Filmfare Award for best actor. Rajput then appeared in the commercially successful films Kedarnath (2018) and Chhichhore (2019).

NITI Aayog, the Indian government’s political think tank, signed it to promote the Women’s Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP). In addition to acting and directing Innsaei Ventures, Rajput has been actively involved in various programs such as Sushant4Education, as part of efforts to help young students.

Rajput was born in Patna. His ancestral home is in the Purnea district of Bihar. One of her sisters, Mitu Singh, is a state-level cricketer. The death of his mother in 2002 left Rajput devastated and it was the same year that the family moved from Patna to Delhi.

Sushant had been in touch with his co-star Ankita Lokhande for six years, which ended in 2016.

On June 14, 2020, Rajput was found dead by apparent suicide by hanging in his house in Bandra, Mumbai. He had been suffering from depression for about six months.
