Sushant Rajput’s Legacy: Shweta Singh Kirti’s Book Unveiled at Lit-O-Fest Mumbai”
The launch of a book penned by the late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s elder sister, Shweta Singh Kirti, took place at Lit-O-Fest Mumbai on Saturday. Published by Penguin Random House India, the book delves into Shweta’s personal journey, reflecting on how the tragic loss of Sushant impacted her and her ongoing battle with pain, courageously navigating through it.
In her own words, Shweta shares, “It’s easy to fall into the negative patterns of life. Everyone experiences the loss of a dear one at some point. It’s during those lowest moments when we make our own choices, either we blame the people, situations, circumstances, or we align ourselves with the divine, trust the process, and stand up for the greater good.”
The untimely demise of SSR on June 14, 2020, left the nation in disbelief, triggering widespread speculation regarding the circumstances surrounding his death. The ongoing investigation by the CBI, initiated after Bihar Police filed a murder case in 2020, continues to seek answers.
Speaking on the matter, Shweta expressed her faith in the investigative agencies, stating, “The agencies are working on Sushant’s case, and I have faith in the divine that justice will prevail.”
During the launch event, discussions revolved around Singh Kirti’s transformative journey from pain to healing, leading her towards spirituality and enlightenment.
Remembering SSR, the festival director Smita Parikh said, “Sushant has been an integral part of Lit-O-Fest Mumbai, and Lit-O-Fest Mumbai will always be incomplete without him. It was Shweta Singh Kirti’s wish that we launch the book under the banner of Lit-O-Fest, and it has been our pleasure sharing this beautiful and divine journey of Shweta with the masses.”
“This journey has not been easy for me. I have been threatened to death. I was compelled to leave the city, and I lived in exile for such a long time, but none of this has made me leave the path of justice. I still stand by my friend, Sushant, and I will keep on fighting for him,” added Smita.
Present at the launch was IRS Sameer Wankhede, journalist Ujjawal Trivedi, Parikshit Thorat, and Sanjay Sakshi. Wankhede was the Zonal Director of NCB during the Sushant Singh Rajput case and arrested more than 300 drug peddlers.
Renowned Writer, filmmaker, and Bollywood actor Atul Tiwari was also present at the event, who, while remembering the late actor, said that despite having such a successful career in Bollywood, Sushant remained a humble person and down to earth. Apart from it, popular TV actors Tarun Khanna and Smriti Khanna also extended their support to the book, requesting the audience to always stand for the truth and justice.
