Bhumi Pednekar has pledged to feed 550 impoverished families in loving memory of Sushant Singh Rajput. They worked together in Sonchiriya which released in 2019, and Bhumi decided to pay a tribute to the late actress in the purest way. She took to her Instagram page and announced the same. The actress joined hands with director Abhishek Kapoor's wife Pragya‘s Ek Saath the Earth Foundation to feed the impoverished families.
She wrote, "In loving memory of Sushant Singh Rajput, I pledge to feed 550 impoverished families through the EK Saath Foundation in the memory of my dear friend. Let's show compassion and love towards everyone that is in need, now more than ever. - Bhumi."
Meanwhile, Bhumi had reacted to the news of Sushant's death by sharing a BTS still from Sonchiriya on her Instagram page and wrote:
"Rest in Peace, my friend... Shocked and Heartbroken... Still can’t believe it... To star gazing and our endless chats... am going to spot you twinkling bright up there with the rest cause you are and will always be a star my dearest SSR."
She also wrote an anecdote which read as "'Supernova' I wake up in the morning & I think of you, I think of all our chats, your habits & moods. Then it kicks in, a pain I couldn’t imagine I would feel for you. The 1st time we met, you told me you would show me the stars, in my head, I wondered-ya whatever, what a cheese ball. Little did I know you meant every word you said. With a smile full of pride you showed it to us, this massive big black hole, your best friend, your telescope. I was like - wait, what you got this here!!! Full of excitement, in the middle of nowhere, you jumped like a child, ready to take us all on a journey... You took us to the moon & back, I remember the moon being red then. You showed us Saturn, Jupiter and a million stars."
