Sushant’s colleagues from the Bollywood industry are now joining fellow countrymen in demanding much-needed closure to the sudden demise of the “Dil Bechara” actor.
Actors Parineeti Chopra, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Ameesha Patel, and Sushant’s former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande have taken to social media to join the raging #JusticeForSSR movement - which has gone global.

Born in Patna, Bihar, Sushant, a science and space enthusiast, was 34 years old and at the prime of his career when he was found dead in his posh apartment in Mumbai.
The case took a dramatic turn after Sushant’s father, K.K. Singh, filed an FIR against his son’s live-in girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her family members in his hometown Patna under various sections of the Indian Penal Code. In his complaint, K.K. Singh also accused Rhea of isolating his son from his family, drugging him, and instigating him to take the tragic step – if it is proven to be a suicide – along with money laundering charges.
Meanwhile, Rhea and her family members are being questioned by country’s top financial probe agency the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to explore the money laundering angle.
Rhea has also filed a petition in the Supreme Court, saying that the case must be handled by the Mumbai Police – which is taking flak for reportedly protecting the powerful culprits involved in Sushant’s death.
Sushant’s US-based sister Shweta Singh Kirti has urged the nation to join a social media movement at 10:00 AM IST on 15 August – India’s 74th Independence Day – to seek justice for her brother.
