“I am a fighter”. That’s how late actor Sushant Singh Rajput describes himself in the trailer of his final movie “Dil Bechara”, striking an ironic note with reality.
The trailer of the film, which pairs him opposite budding actress Sanjana Sanghi, was released this week.
“Dil Bechara” is the official remake of 2014 Hollywood romantic drama “The Fault In Our Stars”, based on John Green’s popular novel of the same name. It narrates a fairytale love story with a tragic ending.
The film follows a young couple in love, as they meet and fall for each other. The tragedy about the story comes with the fact that he has a brush with osteosarcoma, while she is fighting thyroid cancer.
The story then takes the audience on an emotional ride as they embark on a bittersweet journey in a bid to live life to the fullest.
In the trailer, Sushant comes across as a happy guy, who is in love with life and wants to spread cheer.
There is a sequence where he calls himself a fighter, and there is one instance where he says: “We don’t decide when we are born or when we will die, but we can decide how we live”. The lines seem to get a new meaning after his demise.
Last month, Sushant was found hanging in his Bandra residence by his domestic help, which left Bollywood and his fans shocked. He was reportedly battling depression over the past few months and undergoing treatment.
“Dil Bechara” will see Saif Ali Khan in a cameo. Composer AR Rahman and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya have collaborated to create music for the project. Sushant’s last film “Dil Bechara” will premiere on the OTT platform Disney+ Hotstar on July 24.
