We still find it hard to believe that actor Sushant Singh Rajput is no more. There has been quite a lot of speculation surrounding his death from people claiming that it’s murder to mediums reaching out to Sushant‘s spirit to clarify as to why he took a drastic step. It’s been more than a month and things don’t seem to be dying down with a new revelation or explosive interview that comes out every day. But close to a month ago, there was news that a movie based on Sushant’s life would be made in remembrance of the actor.
Looks like things are moving forward on that project. A TikTok user who had gone viral on the platform for his uncanny resemblance of Sushant Singh Rajput has been roped in to play the lead for this movie. The movie is titled Murder or Suicide: A Star Was Lost. The film will reportedly go on floors in mid-September and will be shot in Mumbai and Punjab. The makers also revealed the first look of the movie through a poster. It introduces Sachin Tiwari as ‘The Outsider.’ The film reportedly is not a biopic of Sushant but is inspired by his life.

The producer of the movie Vijay Shekar Gupta said that Sushant’s death came as a shock to everyone but it’s not new. He added that many actors who come to Bollywood with dreams of becoming an actor end up not getting work.
Many actors who come to the industry to accomplish 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. We will be revealing other characters one by one. I can assure you that this film will definitely unmask the real face of the insiders of Bollywood.
The film is being directed by Shamik Maulik and makers are eyeing to release the film for Christmas this year.
