The online release of the last movie of Sushant Singh Rajput, Dil Bechare, directed by the former Casting Director, Mukesh Chhabra is on July 24, 2020 via Disney+ Hotstar.
Mukesh Chhabra said passionately that the film was a testament to faith and friendship in his life. The two had a strong soulful bonding. In fact, the then Casting Director had given Sushanth Singh Rajput the much needed breakthrough in Kai Po Che. Chhabra nourished the dream of becoming a film maker. What is more, Sushant Singh Rajput had unconditionally promised Mukesh Chhabra that he would act in the latter’s film, should he get the opportunity to direct a film. Rightly so, seven years later, when Rajput was at his zenith, when Chhabra approached him to act in his new venture, he honoured his commitment and completed the acting assignment as well.
“When I approached Rajput with Dil Bechare project, he agreed to act without even asking for the story or see the script. In fact, I was very fortunate to have Sushant, as I had firmed up my mind that my hero must be someone who met the mind of the Director, instead of relying on the big stars. He helped me a lot on the sets. We discussed together and filmed each scene. It was those moments where I realised that Sushant was a better creator as well other than being a good man and actor. Dil Bechare turned out to be a better project than I expected. The reason for that was through the help of my soul mate. When we announced the online release of Dil Bechare on July 24, 2020 via Disney+ Hotstar, the positive response it elicited from the fans were gratifying. I am not able to bear the grif to know that Sushant is not around to share the joy,” Chhabra said.
