EXCLUSIVE: Sushant Singh Rajput did Dil Bechara for half his remuneration; here's why

Sushant Singh Rajput's death caused a huge furore on social media. While the investigation is still on, his untimely demise left the entire nation disappointed and heartbroken. The CBI probe is currently on and a lot has been spoken about his financial standings. Pinkvilla had previously reported that contrary to initial reports, SSR had no dearth of work on the film front, and was in talks for several projects with top filmmakers. 

Now, interestingly, a close friend of Sushant, who was there while the contract of Dil Bechara was made, made a big revelation. The source tells us, "Sushant usually charged to the tune of 6-8 crore for each movie that he took up. But for Dil Bechara, he only charged half the money. He got a little over Rs 3 crore for the film."

Ask him why he decided to take a pay cut and our source explains, "This was Mukesh Chhabra's directorial debut and they both shared a warm friendship. He had launched him and Sushant had promised Mukesh that he will do his first film. Dil Bechara, earlier titled Kizzie Aur Manny, took an extra year because of funding and a few internal changes that happened. So when Sushant agreed to do the film, he saw the challenges the team was facing and agreed to do it for half his fee. He also had a long standing relationship with Fox Star Studios and was in touch with the banner for a few more films. He did it just because he felt it was the most correct thing to do." We reached out to Fox Star Studios who remained unavailable. 

Meanwhile, Sushant's Dil Bechara went on to set new benchmarks and recorded a terrific viewership both online and during its satellite premiere. But even with his swansong, Sushant's thoughtful move touched everyone's hearts.

Anonymous : I hope you get justice dear Sushant. I wish you would have known how well loved you were by your fans who are now fighting so hard for you. Other than these innocent simple folk who never knew you and now fighting for you I don't think there was one person in your life who truly cared about what you were going through. Never saw your movies but my heart breaks for all the pain you must have endured.

Anonymous : I am not much into movies. But I have seen Ms. Dhoni movie. Yet today am praying for his justice and closely watching the case updates. Life should be valued. None should walk free after committing a grave sin. Adultery in anything can still be tolerated but taking away life or purposefully targeting at someone's life is a indication of lawless,fearlessness of sins in the society.

He should have sometimes just chilled and stopped thinking. Also the toxic and inebriating relationship with Rhea should have ended. He would have lived and probably outshone Sharukh in his long career as he was indeed a brilliant actor who did research and put everything for his performance.

Anonymous : He was more than an actor. He was just brilliant in his own way, I can't really describe it. When I watched him in Kai Po Che, I knew there was something special about him.. still can't accept the fact that he is gone. My interest in hindi movies fades thereafter.. hope the investigation on his demise will reveal the truth.. though it's gonna be hard for the CBI investigators.. -a huge SSR admirer from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia-

Don’t know why he was renting expensive places when he could just buy. I always liked and watched his movies, could not stop after his Kai Poo Che and his death just feels so personal. The fact that I will be 34 next year and he did not make it long enough :’(.

Anonymous : Enough of thus cr*p. These intrusive articles doesn't exonerate you, this writer specifically from all the targetting, bullying and harassing you did to him when he was alive. You wouldn't take a proper stand and you are still a scapegoat today. Stop with these half hearted articles about him touching people's hearts when you clearly failed miserably to do even 1% of that when he was alive! It's enough!
