Dil Bechara, which is Sushant Singh Rajput’s last completed film, will go direct to streaming. Disney+ Hotstar announced that the film, which also happens to be casting director Mukesh Chhabra’s directorial debut, will start streaming from July 24th 2020.
Earlier today, the platform tweeted “A story of love, hope, and endless memories. Celebrating the late #SushantSinghRajput’s legacy that will be etched in the minds of all and cherished forever. #DilBechara coming to everyone on July 24th”.
Dil Bechara, which is the official remake of John Green’s bestselling novel ‘The Fault In Our Stars’, also marks the debut of Sanjana Sanghi as a lead actress. She was devastated by Sushant’s death and called their film ‘a gift that everyone is yet to see’ in a recent Instagram post. She also posted a heartfelt video after his tragic passing.
Director Mukesh said in a statement, “Sushant was not just the hero of my debut film as a director, but he was a dear friend who stood by me through thick and thin. We had been close right from Kai Po Che to Dil Bechara. He had promised me that he would be in my first film. So many plans were made together, so many dreams were dreamt together but never once did I ever imagine that I would be left alone to release this film. He always showered immense love on me while I was making it and his love will guide us as we release it.”
