He dreamed without restraints, and chased those dreams with the heart of a lion. He smiled generously. He was the pride and inspiration of the family. His telescope was his most prized possession, through which he fondly gazed at the stars.”

The family said that the foundation will honour Sushant’s memory and legacy. Additionally, the actor’s childhood home in Rajiv Nagar, Patna will be turned into a memorial. 

“We will put his personal memorabilia and belongings there, that include thousands of books, his telescope, flight-simulator etc, for his fans and admirers,” Sushant’s family said, adding that they will maintain his Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages as legacy accounts to keep his memories alive.
