Sushant Singh Rajput's last film, Dil Bechara had all the attention of the fans. After the demise of the Bollywood actor, the fans demanded from the makers of this romantic movie that it should be released only in the theatres. This was despite the prior reports of the film being scheduled to release on a digital platform. Lead actress, Sanjana Sanghi shared on Instagram the confirmation of the release of the film on Disney+Hotstar. The fans are absolutely upset with this piece of news. Dil Bechara: Sushant Singh Rajput's Last Movie with Sanjana Sanghi Confirmed to Release on Disney+ Hotstar, Will Start Streaming From July 24, 2020.
As this will be the last film ever starring Sushant, there was a collective request from his fans for a theatrical release. They even had trended the film on social media for this purpose and started an online petition for the same. However director Mukesh Chhabra and team have decided to release it on OTT on July 24, 2020. Twitterati is reacting to this. Check some of the tweets below.

It Is Still a Warm Tribute to SSR
Yes, we would have appreciated #DilBechara more If it was a theatrical release
But It was already a done deal before Sushant's Death
Thanks #disneyplushotstar for honouring our emotions over business aspects and making It available for everyone

The movie will be available for viewing to one and all irrespective of the subscription aspect. Fans will be able to watch the movie even if they do not have any account on this platform at all. This decision was taken by the makers as a tribute to the late star. Well, the decision of releasing the movie on a digital was taken way before the unfortunate incident and probably that is why makers are bound to stick to it. Nevertheless, the movie is always going to be special for fans irrespective of the medium.
