Sushant Singh Rajput‘s unfortunate death by suicide has left all his near and dear ones and his millions of fans heartbroken. Many of his friends and co-stars were shocked for the first few days and are slowly coming to terms with it. Kriti Sanon took to her social media to remember Sushant and also lashed out at journalists who weren’t respecting their privacy and feelings. Shraddha Kapoor, his co-star from Chhichhore, penned a note for the late actor where she spoke about how he was ‘one of the rare ones’.
Today, actress Bhumi took to her social media to pen a lovely note for him, calling him a ‘Neutron Star’. She wrote about how, during the shoot of their film Sonchiriya, he said he would show her the stars and actually did — through his ‘best friend’, his telescope. She recalls the times he would challenge her to write with her left hand, to races and quizzes and how it drove her nuts trying to keep pace with him. She looks back at all the theories, debates, music and art that he introduced her to, and turned into a teacher. She ends by saying she will spot him again through the telescope and easily find him, because he will be the brightest star out there.

‘Supernova’ I wake up in the morning & I think of you, I think of all our chats, your habits & moods. Then it kicks in, a pain I couldn’t imagine I would feel for you. The 1st time we met, you told me you would show me the stars, in my head I wondered-ya whatever, what a cheese ball. Little did I know you meant every word you said. With a smile full of pride you showed it to us, this massive big black hole, your best friend, your telescope. I was like – wait, what, really, you got this here!!! Full of excitement, in the middle of nowhere, you jumped like a child, ready to take us all on a journey… You took us to the moon & back, I remember the moon being red then. You showed us Saturn, Jupiter and a million stars. All of a sudden my might came crashing down, you made me realise I was just a fractal in this pond. You challenged me to write with my left hand & narrate versus backwards… You challenged me to races & quizzes & it drove me nuts… We spoke of Van Gogh, Gaudi & Descartes. We spoke of breaking patterns & creating new ones. We spoke of theories, success & life. We had debates & many fights. We listened to Beethoven & Mozart, We tried understanding their music through algorithms & charts. You spoke of Faraday, Chatelet & tried explaining Newton’s theories through Art. Just like that, from a Co-Star you became a teacher. You turned me into a seeker, ready with her book and pen, waiting for class to begin. I remember your excitement on all the questions I asked, getting an answer from you wasn’t easy, you would turn that too into a learning task. You my friend gave me an experience of a lifetime. You were like the emergence of a Chaos. A chaos so different and potent it’s hard to explain. I know you can see the world grieving for you. There’s a sense of loss everyone feels, many that met & didn’t meet you. Your genius will live on with all the work you’ve done. And through that telescope I’ll spot you again, it will be easy- cause you will be the youngest & the brightest amoungst many we love up there. You truly are a double slit photon, A Neutron Star. You are going to be missed Our dear SSR. #SushantSinghRajput
Sending you all the love and strength, Bhumi.
Bhumi worked with Sushant in Abhishek Chaubey‘s, Sonchiriya which was about a group of dacoits set in Chambal.
