For director Mukesh Chhabra, ‘Dil Bechara’ starring Sushant Singh Rajput is not just a film; it’s a journey of loyalty and friendship. Chhabra gave Singh Rajput his first break into the film industry in ‘Kai Po Che’ (2013). And in return, the late star launched Chhabra’s career as a director when he agreed to do the upcoming ‘Dil Bechara.’
Chhabra said, “Sushant had realised that my heart was set on directing my own film someday. And Sushant promised me that he would work in my film the day I decide to make it.”
‘Dil Bechara’ is completed and ready to be released, reports Mid Day. The director went on to say, “Once I knew that I was making my first film, apart from a great actor I needed someone who would understand me, as a friend, someone who was close to me, someone who would stand by me no matter what during this entire journey. I remember long ago Sushant had promised me that whenever I make my first film, he would star in it as the lead and he kept his promise. So when I approached him for Dil Bechara, he immediately said yes, without even reading the script. We always had this strong emotional connection.”
He went on to say, “He used to always help me improve the scene. He used to read with me and if at any point he felt that creatively the scene could be improved he used to always let me know. We used to sit together and discuss at length.”
The movie, starring the late Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi, will release on Hotstar on Friday 24th July.
