According to the excerpts from her book, shared by Hindustan Times, Shweta revealed that Sushant was always busy with his career, making it difficult for him to visit her in the United States. Instead, she made the effort to visit him in India every year from 2014 to 2017. However, she couldn’t make the journey in 2018 and 2019.
In January 2020, Shweta made a special visit especially to see Sushant. Unfortunately, she was unable to meet him during this trip. Four days before his untimely death on June 14, 2020, Shweta extended an invitation for him to visit the United States during a phone call.

The shocking news of Sushant’s death was broken to Shweta by her husband on the night of June 13 in the United States. Recounting the moment, she shared, “A chill ran down my spine and I lay in bed paralyzed. I didn’t scream. I didn’t cry. By conviction of my practice, I fell into a space that sucked all the shock that my body and mind were going through.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, regular flights from the US to India were disrupted. Shweta managed to secure a ticket but arrived too late to bid her brother a proper farewell. Sushant’s body had already been cremated by the time she reached India.
“The realization that I would not be able to see him for the last time and bid him a proper farewell left me feeling angry and frustrated. There was no closure for me,” she expressed.
Shweta shared that the spiritual journey to come to terms with her brother’s death was the driving force behind her decision to pen down her book, Pain: A Portal to Enlightenment.
