Fernandez, who worked with Rajput in ‘Drive’, the actor’s last-released film that premiered on Netflix, shared a poster of ‘Dil Bechara’ on Instagram with a message: “His going has left a void, everywhere and with everyone.. he taught me to ALWAYS be there for people, whenever I was down or confused, he never hesitated to help.. watching his film is not going to be easy for me but I know he’s going to light up the screen so beautifully and that will give me some peace.”

Sharing a message for the film’s director Mukesh Chhabra and actress Sanjana Sanghi, Fernandez further wrote: “@castingchhabra I know how close you were to Sushant, pls stay strong @sanjanasanghi96 all the best for your debut, you had an amazing first co-star and I’m sure he would’ve been proud of the performance you’ve given.”

The movie is being released on Disney+ Hotstar on July 24.

Meanwhile, fans of the late actor continue to express their disappointment with the decision to release ‘Dil Bechara’ on a streaming platform as they had been yearning for a theatrical release.

Rajput’s co-star in the film Sanjana Sanghi responded to Rajput’s fans in an Instagram post, writing: “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....”
