Dil Bechara: Sushant Singh Rajput’s final film to stream on Disney+ Hotstar

Dil Bechara, a love tale of two cancer patients, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi is set to release on Disney+ Hotstar on July 24. It is based on the novel ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ by John Green.

Rajput made his Bollywood debut in Kai Po Che and rose to stardom after playing the role of former Indian Cricket team’s Captain MS Dhoni in his biopic. He was last seen in Chhichhore which made it to the 100 crore club.

Dil Bechara is Mukesh Chhabra’s directorial debut.

Chhabra and Rajput are known to have shared a brotherly bond.

Many from the Bollywood fraternity took to social media to express their love for the late actor.

. . You gave me a forever, within a limited number of days, and for that. I’m forever grateful. – our beloved novel, The Fault In Our Stars A forever of learnings, and of memories. I refreshed my web pages a 100 times hoping I’m reading some sort of horrible joke. I’m not equipped to process any of this. I don’t think I ever will be. I’m definitely not equipped to articulate my feelings, this is me failing, but trying. We were to save all our anecdotes and stories from the time we spent shooting together up until the release of our film, so we kept them in our stomachs till now. After 2 years of seemingly all the possible difficulties one single film can face, with all sorts of crap constantly being written, and being relentlessly pursued – we were supposed to FINALLY see watch it together – my first, and what you told me you believed was your best film yet. Amidst your journey, and in the middle of 16 hour long shoot days, you somehow found a way and had a desire to yell out to me from the opposite side of set screaming “Rockstar, itni achi acting thodi na karte hain paagal!” ; To guide me over things big & small through our film’s process, To tell me to conserve my energy on set; To discuss even the smallest nuance you thought could change the narrative of a scene and would whole heartedly accept my disagreement; To discuss ways in which we could together forge a brighter educational future for the children of India. You were a force Manny, and you always will be. We’re going to spend an eternity to try and make sense of what you’ve left us behind with, and I personally never will be able to. I simply wish you never left us behind in the first place. Just know, you have a country full of millions, looking up at you, smiling at you, thankful for you. As you smile back at us, from up above. The fact that you get to spend the rest of your time by your mother’s side, I know you gives the only happiness you wanted in the world. #RIPSushantSinghRajput
