This came as shocking news to not only his fans but also peers from the industry. Twitter, Instagram have been filled with memories of the actor and heartfelt condolences to the family. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, too mourned his demise by tweeting ‘a bright young actor gone too soon’.

The Patna-born Rajput became an instant hit with his good looks and boyish charm when he was noticed in the famous soap on Zee TV’s ‘Pavitra Rishta’ in 2009. He made his Bollywood debut in the buddy drama ‘Kai Po Che!’ in 2013, for which he also received a Filmfare nomination for Best Male Debut.
