EXCLUSIVE: Sushant had watched Dil Bechara, but not the final cut; was happy with digital release: Director

Sushant Singh Rajput's death has raised a huge debate in Bollywood. While fans have been asking for a CBI probe on the actor's death, many are also upset with his last film Dil Bechara not being released in theatres. With the Coronavirus scare around the nation, theatres have remained shut since March and there's absolutely no clarity on when the multiplexes will resume shop. In such a scenario, Fox Star Studios, who are backing the Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi starrer, decided to release the film online and make it available to all, digitally. 

While the film hits the OTT platform on July 24 (next Friday), in a conversation with us, Mukesh Chhabra exclusively told us that Sushant had seen a rough cut of the film already. The filmmaker shares, "He had seen the film during dubbing. He was very excited about it. He couldn't see the final cut which is unfortunate. But he was happy and we were discussing how to market the film."

There has been a huge furore on social media where fans wanted the makers of the film to release it in theatres, just as a tribute to SSR. Some fans have also expressed their disappointment at the movie being released online. But Mukesh asserts that Sushant was also of the same opinion as the team to put Dil Bechara on the web. "He was aware of the film being released online. He also felt that it's the best time to release the film digitally because everyone will be able to watch it. Nobody knows when theatres will open, and Sushant also knew that. He was happy with the decision too," the director signed off.

Anonymous : Also which movie A lister will be happy with a digital release. Especially after he was so upset about drive being digitally released. He put his tears and sweat into every performance. His movies don’t get the recognition of people like salman who I’m sorry to say but it’s a fact that he cannot act. His best performances are still less than mediocre.

Anonymous : He’s not here to tell us otherwise. Who knows. Maybe he did. Maybe he didn’t. But if what this director says is true that Sushant was happy with how the movie turned out it’s one more reason that tells me he would not have committed suicide prior to its release. Will cbi ever investigate. Will we ever find out the truth. Or will we just hear all kinds of stories while Sushant is not here to tell us the real truth.

Anonymous : No movie star will be happy with digital releases. His last film "Drive" was on digital and this as well. It must have upset him.
