Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti has announced a memorial fund named after the late actor. A trust has been set up in the University of California, Berkeley, on the occasion of the actor’s 35th birth anniversary. The $35,000 fund will help students pursue astrophysics at UC Berkeley.
Sushant passed away aged 34 in June last year.
Shweta, who resides in California, wrote in an Instagram post, "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. Anyone who is interested in pursuing Astrophysics at UC Berkeley can apply for this fund. Grateful to the angels who made it possible. Happy Birthday, my little brother, I hope you always stay happy wherever you are! Love You.”
Sushant was a space enthusiast who owned a top-line Meade LX600 telescope. He was a member of the International Lunar Land Registry (ILLR), and had supposedly purchased a piece of land on the far side of the moon.
Before his death, he was attached to star in a space-drama film titled Chanda Mama Door Ke.
