Sushant Singh Rajput’s last post on Instagram was on June 3, 2020. His post was in remembrance of his late mother, Usha Singh. Sharing a collage of their pictures, he had written, “Blurred past evaporating from teardrops, Unending dreams carving an arc of smile, And a fleeting life, negotiating between the two.” When Sushant was 15-16 years old, his mother had passed away due to a panic attack. He was very close to his mother, and on losing her, he had faced a lot of anxiety issues. This post had given us a gist about how much he was missing his mother.
