Dil Bechara is Sushant’s last film; the actor died on June 14 at his residence. It was announced on Thursday that the film will be released on Disney+ Hotstar on July 24 and will be available to everyone for free including the ones who have not subscribed to the streaming service, as a mark of tribute to Sushant’s love for cinema.
Taking to Instagram, Vikas wrote, “Dear @foxstarhindi It’s a Request if you can release #dilbechara in cinemahalls when ever they open. This is @sushantsinghrajput last film and it will be heartbreaking 💔 for it not be seen in theatres. Entire India would want to see that.”

The last time everyone gets to witness his craft. Please #foxstarstudios #foxstarhindi It would be something everyone of us will be grateful.”
I wanted it to release in theatre but the world isn’t the place where our every wish gets fulfilled. I wanted to cheer for him for One Last Time but it’s fine. At least they’ll release it. Be ready to cry your heart out guys. #DilBechara
