A few days after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden demise, the news of a film inspired by his life and career has emerged. The movie has been titled ‘Suicide Or Murder? – A star was lost’. It is set to be produced by Vijay Shekhar Gupta and directed by Shamik Maulik.

In a report by Indian Express, the producer shared:

Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by suicide came as a shock to all of us, but it is not new. Many actors who come to the industry to chase their dreams of making it big here end up not getting work. Many take this route, and some keep struggling all their lives. So, we wanted to tell a story of how actors from small towns who don’t have godfathers in Bollywood struggle.

He also said that the movie is not going to be a biopic of the late actor, but will be inspired by his life and career.

The film is not Sushant’s biopic. It is inspired by his life and work. We are writing the script. It will be based on thorough research of the star’s life, and we will be talking to a lot of other actors who are considered ‘outsiders’ in the industry. Star kids will not be a part of this film. We will be working with a rising star who is not a star kid. We should be able to start shooting in a few months.

He also informed the publication that no star kids will be roped in for the film and that they will be working with emerging actors. The filming of the movie is expected to start in a few months.
