On Thursday, 21 January, fans of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput took to social media to remember the humble and brilliant actor that he was. While fans have shared pictures of the star with many heartfelt captions, Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti announced a special scholarship to honor the memory of her brother.
Kirti remembered the passion that Sushant had for astrophysics. To honor this passion Kirti has announced that her family will be funding a 35000 US dollar scholarship at UC Berkeley. Kirti also said that anyone who wants to pursue astrophysics at UC Berkeley can apply for this scholarship. On her Twitter account she wrote, “I am happy to announce that on 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.”
While announcing this scholarship Kirti also shared an old post made by her brother. The post reads, "I dream to create an environment where kids of India— and elsewhere, get 'free', improved and relevant education and great many ways to acquire any skill of choice for free. To create a structure like this, and now, could be highly possible with the 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'.”
Meanwhile, actress Kangana Ranaut also shared a picture of the late actor to remember him on his birthday. Ranaut blamed the movie mafia once again for the death of the actor.
