Here are some reactions to the death:
Filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee
Shocked. Horrified. Angry. Don’t know what to say. I hope his family and loved ones are protected from media violence. I hope they somehow live through this loss. I wish I could do something but feel completely helpless. It shouldn’t have happened. No reason for this to happen. I wish he was alive. He was vulnerable. And intense. I wanted a vulnerable and intense byomkesh. I never regretted the choice.
Manoj Bajpai on Sushant Singh Rajput
We worked together recently in Sonchiriya that I regard as one of the best films of my career and an unmatchable experience. We got to know each other on location and the hotel we were living in. I had known of him before that through my dear friend Neeraj Pandey who had directed him in M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story. He was bullheaded in his approach to that role and went all the way for it, even though he may have never played cricket before. Every morning and evening he would religiously go out for his practice sessions with [former Indian wicketkeeper] Kiran More. He played the role so well, the manner in which he imbibed the essence of Dhoni was impeccable. I have always been more inclined towards an actor trying to excel than an actor who is already excellent. The latter stay there forever. But it is such a pleasant sight to see someone search for that perfect shot, that perfect expression, the perfect craft. He did that.
What I would remember him for is his curiosity for space, how well read a person he was and the talented and hardworking actor that we have lost. He used to be in his own world, reading. I remember him carrying books on quantum physics to the location. He used to carry an expensive pair of binoculars with him, would look at the space out there in the night and invite all of us to gaze at the galaxies under the Chambal sky. I remember him talking about developing an app with the help of his friends. I remember him talking about seeking peace away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the grand house that he had built for himself at Pavnar and how proud he was of it. It’s very difficult for the industry to accept someone who talks intelligently and of things other than films.
I remember him for a foodie that he was and how he loved the mutton I used to cook at the shoot. How we’d discuss having him over home for it. My only regret is that I couldn’t invite him home for that for the lack of time. It’s futile to pinpoint a reason for his death. Media thrives on these incidents and I had to switch off the television for the cacophony getting built around him. Jumping to conclusions is gross injustice to the soul of the one who has departed. Let’s not become so small [by doing that]. We must regard him for what he was–a much revered star and actor. What matters is the shock that everyone is feeling now that he is gone. How difficult it must be for the family and friends to come to terms with such a loss in these times. For me he is like a little boy actor who left us way too early. May god bless him in his journey onwards, may things get more peaceful for him.
Sonchiriya’ director Abhishek Chaubey
I always thought of him for the lead in Sonchiriya. He responded immediately on hearing of the script. I remember it was Holi in 2017. He was shooting in a hotel in Powai and I drove down and spent 3-4 hours discussing the film with him. He surprised me as a person. There was something unique about him. He was different, was on his own when it came to what drove him, what he was passionate about. You’d have never met such film people. He was a misfit and I say that in the best possible way. He was obsessed about space, would talk about science. He was also the most athletic and fit actors I have worked with. I remember there was shot in which he had to jump from one terrace to another. He got the distance and elevation measured. He was so much into mathematical calculation. He did so much, whereas there are actors who wouldn’t even run in a shot for the risk of it.

This got to be the most shocking thing Bollywood ever experiences ..SO YOUNG and SO MUCH LIFE AHEAD and then WHY ??? #SushantSinghRajput
The actor wrote, “It’s such a devastating news. My deepest condolences to Disha’s family and friends. May your soul rest in peace.” This news came as a shocker to many in the industry. Reportedly, police are investigating the case and the reason behind her suicide is still unknown. A few reports also suggest that Disha was with her fiance when the incident took place.
