Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden and untimely demise had spread shockwave among the nation. His last movie “Chhichhore”, dealt with suicide and how it is not a solution to a problem. The movie had a very iconic dialogue “Tumhara result decide nahi karta hai ki tum loser ho ki nahi, tumhari koshish decide karti hai.” It is difficult to digest the fact that the same actor in his last movie raised awareness about mental health awareness and talk about not ending one’s life but looking for solutions or alternatives when something does not work out in your life.
Sushant Singh became a household name with his popular television show Pavitra Rishta. He made his Bollywood debut with Kai Po Che!” which was a success based on Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling book “The Three Mistakes of My Life”. But he came into the spotlight when he essayed the role to MS Dhoni biopic, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story. He was also nominated for film award. He is also known to essay the role of eponymous role of Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! He also worked in supporting role in Aamir Khan’s 2014 hit PK opposite Anushka Sharma.
Sushant’s last movie will be Mukesh Chhabra’s ‘Dil Bechara.’ The movie was earlier scheduled to hit the theatres on 8th May but got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is a remake of the popular Hollywood film ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ which was directed by Josh Boone and starred Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. The movie also features Sanjana Sanghi, Saif Ali Khan, Jaaved Jaaferi and Swastika Mukherjee in prominent roles.
The movie Dil Bechara follows the story of cancer patient Kizzie playing by Sanjana Sanghi who meets cancer survivor Manny (Sushant Singh Rajput) while attending a support group meeting.
