Bahut pyaar karte hain hum aapko jaan aur hamesha karte rahenge (We love you a lot will love you always)." Shweta attached a bunch of childhood memories of Sushant from their Rakhi celebrations over the years to her post and added: "You were, you are and you will always be our pride."
Thank you Shweta, for sharing these priceless glimpses of Sushant Singh Rajput's childhood.
Just last week, Shweta shared this adorable photo of Sushant Singh Rajput as a kid and said: "Right from the beginning he was a charmer, he mesmerized everyone with his beautiful smile and twinkling eyes."
Part 1: I am experiencing bouts of pain. Right when I think I am coping with it better, some or the other incidence rushes right back into my memory and breaks me apart. One such memory I am sharing with you all... because it is said that the more you share your grief, the less it hurts. I have always been told by my family members that Mom and Dad wanted a son, more so because Mumma's first child was a son and she had lost him at the tender age of one and half. I never got to meet my first sibling. But mom and dad were very hopeful for a second son.... they made a sankalp (mannat) and started praying to Maa Bhagwati for straight 2 years. They fasted, they meditated, they did puja, hawan and went to spiritual places and met spiritual people. But then I was born, on a Diwali day.... Mumma considered me very lucky and often called me Lakshmi Ji. They continued with their Sadhna, and a year later my little brother was born. Right from the beginning he was a charmer, he mesmerized everyone with his beautiful smile and twinkling eyes. So, this little one was my "Pithiya". This is a term used in colloquial Hindi to signify the one who comes right after you. Mumma believed that I was the cause of his much-desired arrival into our lives and I accepted the honor whole heartedly. I was very protective about my little brother because I felt I was responsible for bringing him to this earthly plane. We were always time together, We played, danced, studied, did all sorts of mischiefs, ate, slept, did everything together so much so that people forgot we were 2 separate individuals, they even called us "Gudia-Gulshan" as if we were a single entity (Bhai's nick was Gulshan and mine Gudia) And when we started going to school, we had to go to different classes. Bhai's Nursery and my prep classes were in same building so we managed our 1st year of school pretty well. But then my UKG class was in a different building and his prep classroom remained in the same building, so we got separated. One day after lunch break was over I saw Bhai in my classroom, in my building. We were just 4/5 year olds then. #BhaikikahaniBehankizabani #Downthememorylane #LuvuBhai
"I wish I could hold you just one more time," Shweta often remembers Sushant with heart-wrenching posts.
A month after Sushant Singh Rajput's death, Shweta Singh Kirti dedicated this message to her brother: "It has been a month since you left us... but your presence is still felt so strongly. Love you, bhai. Hope you always stay eternally happy."
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14. He was 34. The actor's death is being investigated by the Mumbai Police on one hand and on the other, by the Bihar Police based on the family's complaint against actress Rhea Chakraborty, who was the actor's girlfriend. Sushant Singh Rajput's last film Dil Bechara released last month and was showered with a whole lot of love from fans.
