On Tuesday, the International Space University (ISU) in France paid tribute to Mr Rajput, who was an astronomy buff and a former engineering student. The statement read, “We are deeply saddened by the dramatic news on the death of well-known Indian actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Mr Singh Rajput was a believer and strong supporter of STEM education and was following ISU on social media. He had even accepted an invitation to visit the ISU’s CentralCampus in the summer of 2019 but other agenda priorities prevented him from travelling to Strasbourg. Our thoughts are with Sushant Singh Rajput, his family and his friends. His memory will remain among his thousands of followers across Indian and all over the world.”
