A New Film Depicting Sushant Singh Rajput Is In The Pipeline
The Film Will Be Based On The Title ‘Suicide Or Murder’
A movie financed by Vijay Shekhar Gupta and geared up by Shamik Maulik with a title ‘A suicide or murder?’ is in the pipelines which is inspired by the life of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
It also includes a tagline ‘A star Is Lost’ which is undoubtedly so true as Bollywood has lost a gem.
SSR’s death by suicide has led to debates around nepotism and how ‘outsiders’ are treated in the Hindi film industry.
Gupta shared in his conversation with a news channel and said about the sudden demise of the latter actor, “Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by suicide came as a shock to all of us, but it is not new."
The producer further explained the bitter truth which the strugglers have to face in bollywood, “Many actors who come to the industry to chase their dreams of making it big here end up not getting work. Many take this route, and some keep struggling all their lives. So, we wanted to tell a story of how actors from small towns who don’t have godfathers in Bollywood struggle.”
Clarifying the script of his upcoming film, he said, “The film is not Sushant’s biopic. It is inspired by his life and work. We are writing the script. It will be based on thorough research of the star’s life, and we will be talking to a lot of other actors who are considered ‘outsiders’ in the industry.”
As nepotism has become a hot topic nowadays and in order to stay away from it, Gupta made his point, “We will be working with a rising star who is not a star kid. We should be able to start shooting in a few months.”
SSR’s struggle and hard work in the field of acting needs to be appreciated as it is very difficult for an ‘outsider’ to join bollywood and make his place as an actor.
