Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, who was found dead in his Mumbai home on Sunday, had largely been a social media recluse. However, if there's one thing that the late actor documented on and off in social media posts, it was his "bucket list of 50 dreams" - a Twitter series that now serves as a reminder of the actor's lasting ambitions. In 2019, Sushant Singh Rajput curated a list of his biggest dreams that he wanted to accomplish. Mr Rajput's list of dreams ranged from training for Iron Man triathlon, to playing a cricket match left-handed. Some of them reflected his love for the cosmos. The Kai Po Che! actor wanted to learn Morse Code, wished to help children, wanted to learn about space, and dreamt of playing tennis with a champion tennis ball. His to-do-list also comprised doing a four clap push up. After the actor's death on Sunday, Twitter found a way to remember Sushant Singh Rajput and his big dreams.
