Dil Bechara, the final film of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, was released on Disney+ Hotstar on July 24, 2020. Everyone enjoyed the film since it made them laugh and weep. Mukesh Chhabra’s directorial first film has been out for a year already. As the year draws to a close, Sanjana Sanghi, who also made her debut with this film, recounts the first time she met late Sushant Singh Rajput.

She said in a recent interview that they realised they were both nerds within five minutes of meeting. They became friends over a variety of topics, but one in particular drew them together: Delhi. SSR studied at the nation’s capital, despite the fact that she was from there.

Sanjana told TOI, “We met for the first time at Mukesh (Chhabra, director) sir’s office, where we did our reading. Within five minutes of the meeting, we realised that we both are nerds, are obsessed with everything academic and lived for the love of food! The other common point of interest was Delhi. While I hailed from Delhi, he had studied there. The performances you see in the film are all because of teamwork as it’s a completely performance-oriented movie. It didn’t boast of any fancy song sequences or stunts, but relied on human emotions and relationships.”

While revealing about what she learned from the late actor, Sanjana told, “The one thing Sushant taught me was to save my energy. He made me realise how important it was to conserve energy by not putting in all of it when not required, for instance, the wide-angle shots. He used to call it ‘rationing’ of the energy.”

Talking about the film getting the right attention Sanghi said, “The day the film released, it created records with millions of people watching the movie on the first day. That’s an unreal number. With the kind of love and respect the film got, how can I have any regrets? It was quite an ode.”
