Sushant's swansong free for all
Late Sushant Singh Rajput's viscera report is still awaiting clearance from the forensic department after being sent for chemical analysis, but the actor’s legacy will be etched in the minds of all and cherished forever through his last film Dil Bechara. The film was earlier titled Kizzie Aur Manny. And the OTT platform has made sure that one does not even need to subscribe to the platform and pay the fees. For the love of Sushant and his love for cinema, the movie will be available to all subscribers and non-subscribers from July 24 on Disney Hotstar.
Sushant Singh Rajput has had a long-standing relationship with the STAR & Disney India network, having started his career with the show Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil in 2008 to his Bollywood transition where he delivered some of his most memorable performances in M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016) and Chhichhore (2019) both produced by Fox Star Studios.
“We are humbled to be able to play a small part in sustaining the legacy of a fine actor like Sushant Singh Rajput. In celebration of his life and his extraordinary work, Dil Bechara will release directly on digital this July on Disney+ Hotstar; and will be available to all subscribers and non-subscribers across India. Our prayers and wishes to his family and loved ones,” says Uday Shankar, President – The Walt Disney Company APAC and Chairman, Star & Disney India.
“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, “says Sushant’s old buddy and the film’s director Mukesh Chhabra.
Dil Bechara is the official remake of 2014 Hollywood romantic drama The Fault in our Stars based on John Green’s popular novel of the same name. Mukesh Chhabra makes his directorial debut with this movie, with Hindi adaptation by Shashank Khaitan and Suprotim Sengupta.
