Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on June 14, 2020. His last rites took place at Vile Parle crematorium the next day in presence of his family members and a few industry colleagues.

Recently, there were reports that the actress has not gone missing. Now, Rhea's lawyer Advocate Satish Maneshinde has clarified these reports.
