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.
According to a report by MidDay, Sushant’s friend said—
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.
