Before Sushant's birth anniversary, fans remember him on TwitterLast updated on Jan 20, 2021, 03:57 pm
There's no doubt that Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was loved by many and even after his untimely demise in June last year, his fans managed to keep him alive.
In yet another proof that they miss him dearly, the fans of the late actor trended 'One day for SSR birthday' on Twitter. He would have turned 35 tomorrow.
Here are more details.
Context: A shining Bollywood star died, a controversy followed
Joining the list of prolific actors who left for heavenly abode in 2020 was Rajput, who died by alleged suicide in his apartment.
His passing away also triggered a massive controversy, with his family alleging foul play and leveling serious allegations on his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
Currently, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is probing the matter on the orders of the Supreme Court.
Fans spoke highly of Rajput before his birth anniversary
The repercussions of Rajput's death weren't just limited to the news cycle — the hearts of his fans also broke with it. To remember him, they trended him on Twitter several times and did the same ahead of his birth anniversary.
While some shared his throwback pictures, some remembered his talents.
A user wrote, "Let's Remember @itsSSR Legacy... Cherish his life, movies and all his interviews...... (sic)."

Earlier, his sister also urged fans to celebrate Rajput's life
Last week, Rajput's sister Shweta Singh Kirti also urged fans to celebrate his life and spread love on January 21.
As she sought ideas from them, she also suggested that they can help three people, selflessly, on his birthday.
In another tweet, she stated, "Would love to see more people performing on his songs and posting it on social media."
Recently, Bombay HC made observations in connection to case's reportage
On a related note, the Bombay High Court recently pulled up news channels Times Now and Republic TV for running a "vicious campaign" while covering Rajput's death story. Their reportage was found to be "prima facie contemptuous."
To recall, the sensational news story exposed the worst in Indian journalism as news anchors passed serious statements, without much evidence, and tried outdoing one another in the TRP race.
