On the day of his death, Sanjana reminisced about her experience of shooting for Dil Bechara with him, choking up into the video.
A week later, she wrote another emotional Instagram post: “Whoever said time helps heal all wounds, was lying. Some feel like they’re being ripped open, again and again, and bleeding – Of moments that now will forever remain memories, Of laughs together that were but will never again be, Of questions that will remain unanswered, Of disbelief, that only keeps growing.”

Dil Bechara, Sanjana’s debut film as a leading lady and Sushant’s last, is the gearing up for a digital release next month. The film will be out on Disney+ Hotstar on July 24, and will be made available for free viewing as a tribute.
The news of Dil Bechara’s digital release came as a disappointment for a section of fans, who wished to watch Sushant’s last film on the big screen. Sanjana appealed to them to stop with their requests for a theatrical release. “Let NOT make it about the size of the screen we get to watch this labour of love on, his last, and into my humble belief, his finest. Let’s instead make it about the size of our hearts, that we can make as big as we wish to, and fill up with as much love, joy and pride as we want. Let’s cherish it. Relish it. Celebrate it. into any and every way we can?,” she wrote into an Instagram post.
