Sushant Singh Rajput's co-star Sanjana Sanghi shares a note on one year of Dil Bechara
Sanjana debuted opposite Sushant in this adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars
Actor Sanjana Sanghi made her Bollywood debut with Dil Bechara (2020) opposite the late Sushant Singh Rajput. Directed by Mukesh Chhabra, the film was an adaptation of John Green's 2012 novel The Fault in Our Stars. It was Sushant's final release following his death on June 14 last year.
On the film's first anniversary, Sanjana shared a note with a series of images on her social media.
She wrote, "#1YearOfDilBechara ♥️ A year ago today, upon the eve of Dil Bechara’s release, my nervousness knew no bounds. And today, as we complete 1 YEAR of Dil Bechara (!!) becoming yours forever, all I have in my heart is unsurmountable heaps of gratitude for the kind of love, admiration and support you all have bestowed on our film, and the deep embrace you have given me over this year.
It’s fuel for the soul."
The actor continued, "It’s what makes this vulnerable, emotional and magical journey of being an actor absolutely surreal. Each of your letters, your sketches, your remembering every dialogue, remembering every scene, and celebrating every milestone has made this tough journey that has been ridden with loss become a little more bright & sparkly. Thank you, for taking care of our film and celebrating it in ways we couldn’t ever even dream of.
It has truly been the greatest privilege & honour that has ever been bestowed upon me to discover myself as an actor in portraying Kizie Basu, the Indian Hazel Grace Lancaster from a novel I’d read an endless number of times as a teenager. And the opportunity to do that in the guidance of so many creatives geniuses made it unforgettable - Mukesh, Sushant, Rahman Sir, Rucha, Setu Sir, Swastika, Shashank Sir, Shashwat Da, Pritam Da, Sahil.
Staying true to Kizie’s core yet making her a whole new person, has been one of the most unique, uphill but satisfying challenges life has ever thrown at me, every bit of which has helped me grow and evolve, as a person & as an actor. Like every milestone, this one too, is first yours. THANKYOU, from the bottom of my heart.♥️"
Sanjana's upcoming release is Om: The Battle Within. An action thriller, the film is led by Aditya Roy Kapur.
