Rajput died on 14 June by suicide in Mumbai at the age of 34. With Dil Bechara being the last film the late actor worked in, there is a lot of anticipation surrounding it. There were even demands on Twitter that the film be released in theatres after news about its online release was out.
Dil Bechara, the official Hindi remake of the Hollywood film The Fault In Our Stars (2014), features Sanjana Sanghi opposite Rajput. The story of the original film, based on John Green's bestselling book, revolved around two teenagers, both cancer patients, who fall in love.
The film has been adapted by Shashank Khaitan, known for his adaptation of the Marathi film Sairat (2016) into Dhadak (2018). Casting director Mukesh Chhabra makes his directorial debut with the movie.
