The Dil Bechara trailer dropped today amidst a thick bittersweet sentiment. The lead actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s passing stunned everyone and Dil Bechara, being the actor’s last project, will always be special to us – the fans. Twitterati and the netizens have expressed their excitement for the film by trending #DilBecharaTrailer. The female lead actor Sanjana Sanghi shared a behind the scenes picture yesterday, which is kind of heartbreaking considering the circumstances. In the Insta post, she reminisced about the shoot and behind-the-scenes fun with her late co-actor.

Oye? I need to laugh till my stomach hurts at all your bad jokes. I need to compete with you on who can eat more ham & cheese omelettes and drink more chai. Fight with you over who’s script looks more tattered and worn out because we worked on it endlessly. Try to keep up with your electric pace every time you said, “Chal na, thoda dance karte hain!” in the middle of a tough scene. And argue with you over what we feel about Yuval Noah Harrari & Freud’s books. UGH.
What’s Dil Bechara About:
Originally titled Kizie Aur Manny, Dil Bechara is an official remake of the 2014 Hollywood teenage drama The Fault In Our Stars, which was based on the novel of the same name written by John Green. The plot revolves around a young girl who is in advanced stages of thyroid cancer, which has spread to her lungs. She partakes in a cancer support group and meets a charming man who she bonds with over books and other hobbies. Sanjana Sanghi stars opposite Sushant Singh Rajput, her look complete with the nasal cannula and everything. This is casting director Mukesh Chhabra’s directorial debut. Here’s the trailer if you haven’t seen it already.
Why You Should Watch:
Despite its heavy subject matter and a premise that’ll definitely make you ugly cry, Dil Bechara promises to be a sweet coming-of-age movie of a terminally ill girl who forms a beautiful, spirited friendship. A. R. Rahman has worked on the film’s music, so we can expect some breezy as well as soulful songs befitting a film full of soul. The Fault In Our Stars opened to great reviews and love from the viewers and we are sure Dil Bechara will follow the same trajectory. Plus, Sushant Singh Rajput (rest easy, SSR).
Dil Bechara releases on Disney+ Hotstar on the 24th of July. Make some nice popcorn, get some super-absorbent tissues for your tears, and stream it as soon as it releases. Stay tuned for our Dil Bechara review and click on the following image for some awesome movie recommendations and updates.
