A proposal to rename a street in Andrews Ganj area in New Delhi after Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has been approved, said Abhishek Dutt, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation’s (SDMC) Congress councilor, on the 35th birth anniversary of the late actor on Thursday.
“Six months ago I received a request to rename a street in Andrews Ganj area after Sushant Singh Rajput. The proposal has finally been approved,” Dutt told ANI.
He further added, “We will soon be inaugurating this street. It is very important to give him the respect he deserves”. In the written proposal to the committee, Dutt had said that a large number of people living in the area abutting Road No 8 hail from Bihar, and had claimed “they have been demanding” to name the stretch from Andrews Ganj to Indira Camp as ‘Sushant Singh Rajput Marg’.
In other news, remembering the late actor on his 35th birth anniversary, many Bollywood celebrities took to social media to pay their tributes to him. While the star’s celebrity friends shared heartfelt messages on social media, his sister Shweta Singh Kirti announced a special scholarship fund in his memory.
Shweta announced a $35,000 fund at UC Berkeley. She wrote, “I am happy to announce that on the 35th Birthday of Bhai, a step has been taken towards fulfilling one of his dreams. The Sushant Singh Rajput Memorial Fund of $35,000 has been set up in UC Berkeley. #SushantDay.”
Shweta also shared an old Instagram post by Sushant, in which he had talked about the kind of educational setup he wanted to create for students.
“I dream to create an environment where kids of India— and elsewhere, get ‘free’, improved and relevant education and a great many ways to acquire any skill of choice for free. To create a structure like this, and now, could be highly possible with right intentions and some working knowledge of chaos and game theories, non-zero-sum structures that bio-mimic. Any suggestion/ feedback/idea for the Cause, if you have, please do share. I would be highly obliged. It’s about time that we acknowledge ‘convergence’ that’s happening all around the globe and make the youth more competent and happy ‘now’. Because as they say, the more we learn, the lesser time it takes for us to learn even more. Let’s begin. It’s about ‘time’,” his post had read.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14, 2020.
