The trailer of Dil Bechara starring late actor Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi is out now.

Bankrolled by Fox Star Studios, the film will stream on Disney+ Hotstar VIP on July 24 for both subscribers and non-subscribers in memory of the late actor.

The trailer is told from the perspective of Kizzie (Sanjana Sanghi), a teenager diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She befriends Manny (Sushant Singh Rajput), a young, jovial, and flirtatious lad who she eventually falls in love with. The popular “Okay? Okay” takes a Tamil twist with “Seri? Seri” and what ensues is love, smiles, tears, pain, and sorrow with the two of them attempting to complete each other’s ‘King and Queen’ story.

The dialogue ‘We don’t get to choose how to die, but we do have a say in who hurts us’ strikes a chord greater than usual, tearing one up. AR Rahman’s score further adds on to the emotion, making the two-and-a-half-minute trailer fly.

Originally based on John Green’s novel of the same name, Shashank Khaitan and Suprotim Sengupta have adapted it for Indian audiences.

The film also stars Swastika Mukherjee, Sahil Vaid, Saswata Chatterjee, Saif Ali Khan, Milind Gunaji, and Javed Jaffrey in important roles. AR Rahman has composed for the film with Amitabh Bhattacharya on the lyrics. Satyajit Pande has cranked the camera and Deepa Bhatia is on the edit.

Earlier titled Kizie Aur Manny, the film was to hit the screens on 8 May 2020 after several postponements. Unfortunately, the release was further delayed because of the nationwide lockdown.

The sudden demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, who shot to fame with Kai Po Che!, has created a stir in the Indian film industry. The Chhichhore star who died by suicide in his home in Bandra, Mumbai, on June 14 morning has been the point of discussion on social media for the past few weeks owing to the nature of his death, his on-screen personality and career, and the speculation that Bollywood reportedly refused to help him despite knowing of his long battle with depression.

While there is no clarity on his death as yet, the Mumbai police has been investigating several celebrities and people associated with the actor.

The latest to be interrogated was Hero fame Sooraj Pancholi due to some rumours surrounding Sushant’s ex-manager Disha Salian’s death. The actor has slammed the rumours stating that it is baseless and is right off a random Facebook post. Disha Salian’s family has put out a statement requesting people to avoid speculating on her death and allow the family to mourn in peace.

Last week, Sushant’s family had also put out a statement thanking fans for their love and to announce that they would be turning his house into a memorial with his possessions for visitors to drop by. They also announced that they would be setting up a foundation, ‘Sushant Singh Rajput Foundation’ to help upcoming talent in the fields of cinema, sports, and science.
