You Have An Appointment With Sushant Tonight at 7.30 pm

Displaying the arrogance of  supreme  confidence Disney-Hotstar  has  decided to  not screen the final  Sushant  Singh  Rajput film before 7.30 pm on Friday.

Normally films scheduled  for release  on the  OTT platform are released at  midnight on the day of release.

“Not this one. This , as you know, is a  special case .We want  all of Sushant’s fans, the entire nation, to sit together and  watch the  film at  7.30 pm,” says  director Mukesh Chhabra, adding that this was  the  producers Disney-Hotstar’s strategy.

This  is indeed a  tall order. Almost like  a  live telecast  of a one-day cricket match. I wish thesame enthusiasm had been shown for the release  while Sushant  was  still alive.

Incidentally the producers held back the release  of Dil Bechara for almost two years. Wonder what they were  waiting for.An Indian remake of  the Hollywood weepie  The Fault  In  Our Stars  featuring Sushant Singh Rajput as a terminally ill loverboy ,Dil Bechara is suddenly big news  after the actor’s sudden death .

The  Hindi remake    was earlier called   Kizzie Aur Manny  and has been ready for release since the last two years .Trade analysts  say , since this is the only unreleased  film of Sushant, the clamour to get it  into  the public eye  is impressively  exacerbated. The film is  crucial for its  debutante  heroine Sanjana Sanghi and its debutant director  , the well-known casting  director Mukesh Chhabra .  In  Sushant’s  swan song  he will  be seen  playing a  dying man.
