MUMBAI: Late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has been honoured posthumously with the Critics Best Actor accolade in the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2021 award ceremony.

Rajput died by suicide last year in June. His film 'Dil Bechara', a remake of 'The Fault In Our Stars', was released after his death in Disney+ Hotstar.

While Mumbai police ruled his death as a suicide, his family had approached for a different investigation. 

An FIR in a Patna court was filed against his former girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakraborty, and her brother Showik Chakraborty, for abetment to suicide and siphoning his wealth. 

The investigation is still on.
