Sushant Singh Rajput waved goodbye to the world at the age of 34. The actor was laid to rest by his family including his father and two sisters in a tearful funeral that took place yesterday. With limited people in attendance, Sushant was cremated at Pawan Hans Crematorium in Vile Parle. His co-stars Shraddha Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Varun Sharma and others marked their presence along with Vivek Oberoi, who penned a heartbreaking note for the deceased actor. 

Vivek, on Instagram, shared an emotional note for Sushant and revealed heartbreaking details of the funeral. The actor said the pain in Sushant's father's eyes while lighting the pyre was unbearable while his sister begging him to return was deeply tragic. Vivek added that the film industry that calls itself 'family' needs to 'bitch less and care more' and 'nurture talent and not crush'. He called Sushant's suicide a wakeup call for the industry as a whole and prayed that Sushant is in a better place now.
