On Sunday afternoon, actor Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide, leaving us all devastated and sad. The star left a legacy of excellent performances. He will be last seen on the silver screen in Mukesh Chhabra‘s directorial debut, Dil Bechara, which is a Hindi adaptation of John Green‘s book The Fault In Our Stars. The film also stars Sanjana Sanghi.

According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, we have learnt that the actor was going to kick start a rom-com film directed by Rumi Jaffery. And, Sushant’s alleged girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty was to star opposite him. Talking about the movie, the director said—

The script was locked and we were to begin shooting in May. The coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown delayed things

Rumi, traumatised by the actor’s sudden death revealed:

I lost Irrfan Khan, then Rishi Kapoor and Wajid, and now Sushant. I am so disturbed, my father has asked me to return home to Bhopal.

The director also revealed that the film’s narrative would have travelled from Mumbai to London. And the shooting schedule was spread over six months. He also told the publication that he was going to highlight Sushant’s dancing skills in this movie.

Speaking about the project, the director said:

A rom-com, it was to explore Sushant’s dancing skills. He was a fantastic dancer and my film would have showcased him in a different light. He loved Shah Rukh Khan’s acting and Govinda’s dance and that’s why I had a full-fledged dance number with Govinda-style moves planned for our mahurat.

He also added that he will never make this movie as it was written keeping the late actor in mind.
