 The hashtag #WeWantDilBecharaOnBigScreen kept trending on Twitter on Friday, with fans of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput demanding that his last movie be released in theatres and not taken directly to OTT.

This demand by the late actor’s fans comes at a time when a lot of producers are taking the OTT route to release their movies owing to theatres being shut.

Demanding a theatrical release for Sushant’s last film “Dil Bechara”, a fan tagged the film’s director Mukesh Chhabra and tweeted: “#WeWantDilBecharaOnBigScreen. As this is last movie of our late Actor @itsSSR. it’s heartfelt request not to release it on OTT platform. @CastingChhabra Sir we want it on the Big Screen.”

“Sushant will always be remembered... missing very badly..and yes #WeWantDilBecharaOnBigScreen,” reads another fan’s tweet.

At the same time, netizens are demanding for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the late actor’s untimely death as they tweet using the hashtag #CBIEnquiryForSushant.

“He was full of life... He won’t commit suicide.. Surely it’s a planned murder #CBIEnquiryForSushant #WeWantDilBecharaOnBigScreen,” tweeted another user.

“Dil Bechara” was originally slated to hit theatres in May this year. However, the film could not release on time as theatres have been shut following the government’s instructions amid the COVID 19 lockdown. Meanwhile, Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on June 14.

Film inspired by Sushant 

Singh Rajput’s life in the works

A movie inspired by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s life and career is in the works. Titled Suicide Or Murder? – A star was lost, the film will be bankrolled by Vijay Shekhar Gupta and helmed by Shamik Maulik.

Talking about the movie, Gupta shared with indianexpress.com, “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 added, “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.”
