The last rites of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who committed suicide on Sunday morning, will be performed in Mumbai on Monday.
According to media reports, the last rites will be performed after the arrival of his father and other family members in Mumbai from Patna.
The 34-year-old actor was found hanging in his Bandra residence on Sunday morning by his domestic help. As per the reports, the last thing Sushant consumed before ending his life was a glass of juice on Sunday morning, at around 10. Afterwards, he reportedly locked himself up in his bedroom.
The domestic help knocked the door several times but upon receiving no response, she reached out to the neighbours. Shortly the police arrived and broke into Sushant's flat at around 12.30 pm and found him hanging.
