Sushant Singh Rajput Marg: Delhi Street To Be Named After SSR

Sushant Singh Rajput, who made his Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kai Po Che’, would have turned a year older on Thursday (January 21). The talented actor, known for his acting prowess, passed away at the age of 34 on June 14, 2020. The ‘Raabta’ actor’s untimely demise left a void in the hearts of his family members, friends and fans. They remembered Sushant on his birth anniversary by sharing throwback pictures and heartfelt posts on social media.

According to a report in PTI, a stretch of road in South Delhi’s Andrews Ganj will be named after SSR as the area’s civic body has approved the proposal.

SDMC’s Congress councillor Abhishek Dutt shared the proposal with civic body’s road naming and renaming committee in September 2020. “It was cleared by the SDMC House in its meeting yesterday,” an official was quoted as saying by PTI.

Abhishek Dutt sent a written proposal to the committee in which he mentioned that many people living in the area abutting Road No 8 hail from the state of Bihar. He claimed that ‘they demanded’ to name the stretch from South Delhi’s Andrews Ganj to Indira Camp as Sushant Singh Rajput Marg in his memory.

Sushant was found dead at his apartment in Mumbai on June 14. Three Central agencies including the CBI, the ED and the NCB are investigating the high-profile case. The NCB had arrested Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty in a case linked to Sushant’s death in September 2020. The Bombay High Court granted bail to Rhea on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh. She walked out of Mumbai’s Byculla Jail after staying behind the bars for close to a month.

Sushant’s last film ‘Dil Bechara’, which premiered on Disney+ Hotstar, received a good response from the audience. The romantic drama is the official adaptation of John Green’s novel ‘The Fault in out Stars’. It also starred Sanjana Sanghi, who made her debut in a full-fledged role.
