Sushant Singh Rajput's Brother-In-Law Recalls Breaking The News Of SSR's Demise To Shweta After Seeing 'Dreadful Missed Calls Around 2AM'

·3-min read

Today, that is, August 14, marks two months of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic demise, a tragedy that millions of fans have still not moved over. The Kai Po Che star was allegedly found hanging in his apartment on June 14, 2020. Ever since then, the fight for justice for the late actor is alive with Sushant's fans and family asking for CBI probe to know what exactly happened on the day of his death. In the midst of all this, Sushant's California-based brother-in-law Vishal Kirti took to his personal blog and recalled the fateful night of his death and how his sister Shweta Singh Kirti reacted to this devastating news. In his piece, Vishal also revealed that even after two months, their eyes remain teary and the fight to know the closure continues. 

Vishal wrote how since it was weekend, he and his wife Shweta keep their phone on airplane or vibration mode to avoid any kind of disturbance. "The dreadful calls started coming in at around 2 am PST (2:30 pm IST). The phone was away from the bed and of course, I had no idea who was calling and why continuously but I could hear the nonstop vibrations. Annoyed, I got up to check and at that moment, the world came tumbling down. Before I talked to anyone, I read the text messages which were flashing on the screen. Many people including family members were trying to reach us and many friends were asking if the news was fake. I checked the news and was horrified to read that Sushant had allegedly taken his life. I ran over to Shweta’s phone on the other side of the bed and noticed a plethora of missed calls and text messages on her phone as well," wrote Vishal.

Recalling his wife and Sushant's sister Shweta's reaction, he added, "And that’s when I did one of the toughest things I have had to do in my life, break the news to Shweta. I cannot forget her reaction and her first conversation with Rani Di. It broke my heart to listen to them crying on the phone and that night changed our lives forever as we knew it. The morning was even more challenging since we had to break this news to our children, Sushant’s niece, and nephew."

Vishal then revealed how difficult it was to arrange for flight tickets to India, especially in the mid of a pandemic. However, Shweta managed to find one for herself.

Further, he urged fans to continue with their fight for justice. "I am sharing this because it’s been two months since that fateful night and we are still struggling. Emotions are still high and eyes are still watery.  What was taken away from us that night is hard to express in words. Our lives will never be the same again. However, we hope that an unbiased investigation would shed light on what transpired and perhaps give us some closure so that we can focus on cherishing his memories instead of always wondering what exactly happened with Sushant and why he could not be saved," wrote Vishal.

Lastly, he shared his most favourite picture and memory with the late actor from his wedding. Read his complete blog here.
