Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister, Shweta Singh Kirti has shared some endearing memories with younger brother Sushant. She also shared a screenshot of a June 10 chat, about four days before the actor was found dead at his Mumbai home, reported Hindustan Times (HT).
The chat shows Sushant telling Shweta, “Bohat mann karta he di (I really feel like…)” to which she replied with a snap of a picturesque location and said, “To aa jao na Baby…come for a month. Just chill here. Achha lagega tumhe…I want tel my friends that ur here…so koi… (So please come baby, come for a month. Just chill here, you will feel good. I will tell my friends you are here so nobody…).”
Posting pictures on Instagram with a note, she wrote, “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.”
She wrote how, having lost their child, a son at the age of one-and-a-half years, her parents had fervently prayed for another son. “But then I was born, on a Diwali day…. Mumma considered me very lucky and often called me Lakshmi Ji.”
Shweta said Sushant was her “Pithiya” which refers to the one who comes right after a person. “Mumma believed that I was the cause of his much-desired arrival into our lives and I accepted the honour wholeheartedly. I was very protective about my little brother because I felt I was responsible for bringing him to this earthly plane,” she added.
Sharing a memory from her ‘vidaai’ ceremony, she wrote, “Fast forward in 2007, I remember the day when I got married and as I was leaving, Bhai hugged me tight and we cried a lot. Physically we won’t stay together anymore, we won’t get to see each other that often anymore as I was moving to USA.”
Talking about one of the chats they had on the phone, she wrote, “Both of us got too busy with our lives. Bhai got into Bollywood and kept making us all proud with his accomplishments but I remained protective about him. I would often ask him to come and visit me in the US so that we can relive our childhood once again away from all the noise. I only wish I could have protected him from everything….I still wish I will wake up to see my Bhai… just right next to me and will realize this whole episode was just a nightmare and nothing more. #BhaikikahaniBehankizabani #Downthememorylane #LuvuBhai.”
