The trailer for late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's Dil Bechara proved to be a heart-breaking experience for his fans, who saw him perform for the big screen one last time before his unfortunate demise.
A Mukesh Chabra film, starring debutant Sanjana Sanghania, the movie was an official remake for hollywood romantic drama The Fault In Our Stars where a young couple falls in love despite the two fighting from osteosarcoma and thyroid cancer respectively.
Crossing the 21 million mark on Youtube only 16 hours after its release, the video broke the record previously held by Avengers.
Watching him onscreen for the last time, veteran actor Sushmita Sen too, wrote a heartfelt note, saying she feels she is better acquainted with the actor now, courtesy of his fans.
"I didn’t know Sushant Singh Rajput personally, only through his films & some interviews. He had tremendous emotional intelligence both on & off screen! I feel like I know him better now, all thanks to his fans. Countless lives that he touched, with endearing simplicity, grace, love, kindness & that life affirming smile!!!" she posted.
Addressing his audience, the Main Hoon Na actor also regretted not being able to work with him.
"To all you Sushant Singh Rajput Fans, he was blessed to be this loved by you all. Not just as a brilliant actor but also, as a celebrated human being, one who belonged! I wish I knew him, had the opportunity to work with him."
"Mostly, that we would’ve had the time, to share the mysteries of the ‘Universe’ from one Sush to another and maybe, even discovered why we both had a fascination for the number 47! Loved the Trailer of Dil Bechara Here’s wishing the very best to everyone in the team. My regards & respect to Sushant’s family, friends & loved ones..his fans!!!"
The actor's death was ruled a suicide after he was found dead in his apartment in Mumbai.
