Meanwhile, on Sunday, she also shared a throwback video in which Sushant's sisters are joyous about the fact that the late actor is playing Indian cricket icon Mahendra Singh Dhoni in his 2016 biopic.
The video, shot on a mobile camera, shows Sushant and his sisters lazing about in bed, pulling his leg and having a hearty laugh. "My brother has become Mahendra Singh Dhoni," the sisters say, teasing Sushant about bagging the biggest role of his career. They also talk about how proud they are of their brother.
"We had joy, we had fun! We had seasons in the sun, But the smile and the song, Like the seasons have all gone. How I wish we were all together again...#Youwillstayinourheartsforever #comeback," Shweta posted on her verified Instagram account along with the video.
The video comes after former India captain Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket on Saturday.
Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on June 14. Everyone including his family, film colleagues and fans are demanding a CBI inquiry into his death case.
