Today marks exactly a month since actor Sushant Singh Rajput left us. To honour him, a road in his hometown Purunea in Bihar was renamed after him, last week. Now, the actor’s Mumbai-based family friend, Niloptal Mrinal has appealed that the lane where he stayed be renamed in memory of the late actor.
His loss is still being mourned, and it is only befitting that the road where he resided be named after him. I first approached Aaditya Thackeray and Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal. They directed me to the officials of the H (West) municipal ward under whose jurisdiction the area falls. I have written to the local civic authorities.
Mrinal, who runs an NGO called Nanhi Goonj Vikas Foundation, said that he hopes the city will keep his memories alive. He said—
I have also suggested that if not a road, a chowk or a garden in the area be named after Sushant. Currently, the municipal authorities are busy battling the pandemic. They have assured me they will look into it at the earliest.
