Film inspired by Sushant Singh Rajput's life titled 'Suicide or Murder' is in works, confirms Vijay Shekhar Gupta
New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Bollywood actor Sushant Singh, who committed suicide on June 14, made his place in the industry from television to big screen in a short span of time by working hard. The actor with his hard work impressed people across the industry and made a place of him in the hearts of the fans. However, his suicide last week has left the entire industry in a shock.
The police have confirmed that the actor was under depression and was taking antidepressant pills for the last six months. There is an investigation going on by the officials to know if there was any professional rivalry and what caused the actor to take the extreme step.
Meanwhile, Sushant’s sudden demise has opened up several controversies of the Bollywood's dark side. Netizens along with some renowned actors and producers have started speaking up about the dark industry which hides under the glitter.
While the investigations going on, film director Shamik Maulik and producer Vijay Shekhar Gupta have come up with an idea to produce a film based on the actors who come from small towns with big dreams but end up being an ‘outsider’. The idea is emerged by actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Vijay Shekhar Gupta took to Twitter to share a glimpse of the upcoming film. The 18-second video shows late actor Sushant Rajput with a title “Suicide or Murder: A Star Was Lost”.
Take a look:
In an interview with The Indian Express, Shekhar said, “Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by suicide came as a shock to all of us, but it is not new. 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.”
Meanwhile, Vijay clarified that his film is not a biopic but is rather inspired by actor Sushant’s life. “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. Star kids will not be a part of this film. 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,” he told The Indian Express.
