The makers of Dil Bechara have their verdict out on the matter regards to release date of the movie. Soon after the release date announcement on Thursday, Dil Bechara found a top spot on Twitter trends with fans criticising the makers’ decision to release it on an OTT platform instead of reserving the film for theatres, for when things go back to normal.
As tribute to Sushant Singh Rajput they wanted it to see on big screen for the last time. “This is not fair’, they say. “The love for Sushant is such that they give us a chance to make his last film a blockbuster, said a tweet while another added: “I wanted it to release in theatres but the world isn’t the place where our every wish gets fulfilled.”
Fox Star Studios, which is producing Dil Bechara and has previously backed Sushant’s films such as Chhichhore and MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, for releasing Sushant’s last film on Disney Hotstar. “I want a theatre release. This is ridiculous,” tweeted an angry user while another added: “We all want to see Dil Bechara in theatres, not on OTT platform. It’s not fair.” Another fan of the late actor summed up the emotion on Twitter and wrote: “At least one more… last time… let us watch him on the big screen.” Sushant’s fans want to honour the late actor with a standing ovation as a final farewell, said a tweet: “Release it in theatres so that we can at least give him standing ovation for his work.”
