0 7


Remember when we told you that a film inspired by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput was in works? Seems like the makers are leaving no stone unturned in depicting what they want to and in not-so-subtle ways. Earlier, it was announced that Sachin Tiwari – a TikTok star who is also termed as the look-alike of SSR–has been cast in the movie as the lead. And now, they have gone ahead and unveiled “Rana as the Nepoking” who is presumably the bad guy of the movie titled, Suicide Or Murder? – A Star Was Lost.

Conceptualised by producer Vijay Shekhar Gupta and director Shamik Maulik, the film is set to release on a new OTT platform VSG Binge. The official handle of the streamer even shared a poster and have to admit, it looks like a certain someone. The post even read, “He is a Big Shot Film Producer. But he only launches star kids. Introducing #RANA as ‘The #Nepoking’ in #SuicideOrMurder produced by @vsgbinge.”

Yeah, subtlety is definitely not their strong suit.

Vijay Gupta who is bankrolling the film, opened up about his production and was quoted by DNA saying, “My film is a tribute to those who have fallen victims to the nepotistic approach of the bigwigs and to expose the game the big producers play and ruin innocent, talented and promising actors. The film is definitely not a biopic of Sushant Singh Rajput but inspired by the lives of outsiders who allegedly fall victim to Nepotism and Bollywood that prevails in the film industry.”

Not just that, the film is even gearing up to go on floors and then release sooner than expected. “We plan to go on floors in mid-September. The film will be shot in Mumbai and Punjab. We are planning to release the film on Christmas 2020. But if the COVID-19 crisis continues, we will be aiming for a January 26, 2021 release,” he added.

Meanwhile, Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film Dil Bechara, the official Hindi adaption of Hollywood film, ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ alongside debutante Sanjana Sanghi has received humongous love and outpouring support after it premiered on Disney+ Hotstar last Friday.
