New Delhi:

The news of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s final film Dil Bechara set for digital release broke many hearts and singer actor Diljit Dosanjh was among them. The Udta Punjab actor shared the poster of Dil Bechara on his Instagram page on Tuesday and said that the film should have released in cinemas. The actor captioned his post in Punjabi (translated to English), “This film should have released in cinemas… I met Sushant twice he was a great man… I’ll definitely watch this film on Hotstar.”

Dil Bechara will release on Disney+Hotstar on July 24 for subscribers and non-subscribers.

Here’s Diljit Dosanjh’s post:

The digital release of Dil Bechara was announced a week after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death and a section of social media was not pleased with it. Like Diljit, they hoped the movie would release in cinemas. A fan wrote, “This is not fair. We want Dil Bechara to release in theatres, so that we’ll get a chance to make his last film a blockbuster as tribute to our Sushant Singh Rajput.”

After Twitter’s voice strengthened against the digital release of the film, Sushant Singh Rajput’s co-star Sanjana Sanghi urged fans to accept this decision and “not make it about the size of the screen we get to watch this labour of love on, his last, and in my humble belief, his finest.” She also added, “Blockbuster banani hai, toh apke pyaar se hi ban jayegi. Hamesha box office ki zarurat toh nahi hain na?”

#DilBecharaOnAnyScreen A personal note: Aaj kal, ek alag nazariye se sab kuch dekhne ki koshish kar rahi hoon, socha aap sab ke saath bhi thodi baat kar loon. Iss samay, dard kaafi hai. Aur badhate nahi hai na? Yeh sab akele karna, mushkil kaafi hai. Apne aap ko, iss zidd se, riha kar dete hai na? In mushkilon, ko thoda asaan kar dete hai na. Let’s make this a time to celebrate a legendary life, a film? A time to give a tribute, to embrace these extremely challenging circumstances we all are in. And not a time to revolt, asking for something that in our present reality cannot be made possible. Bloockbuster banani hai, toh apke pyaar se hi ban jayegi!Hamesha Box office ki zarurat toh nahi hain na? Let NOT make it about the size of the screen we get to watch this labour of love on, his last, and in 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. In any and every way we can? Socha agar moral support hee dena hai, toh shayad #DilBecharaOnAnyScreen ki thaan lo?Aur #DilBecharaOnBigScreen ko abhi ke liye, bhool jao? Aur jahan rahi intezaar karne ki baat. Intezaar toh mahino se kar rahe hain, taqleefon se guzar rahe hain. Ab film dekhne ka time, aur yaadon mein beh jaane ka time, aa gaya hai. Itna pyaar hai aapke paas dene ke liye, bas unconditionally de do? Dukh bahut zyaada hai, thodi si khushi ka mauka hee de do na. . . . #SushantSinghRajput Thank you for helping me put this together @hubhopperofficial
