And the makers, we hear, have roped in Saif for the film.
Sushant Singh Rajput, who is currently promoting Sonchiriya, has two films lined up for release this year.
The actor will be seen in Nitesh Tiwari's Chhichhore and also in the Hindi remake of the Hollywood film The Fault in Our Stars.
The latter film, which will mark newbie Sanjana Sanghi's acting debut, was earlier titled Kizzie Aur Manny. It will now be called Dil Bechara.
Sushant shared the first look on his Instagram account and wrote, 'Jab baat Dil ki ho, then let everyone know. #KizzieAurManny is now #DilBechara.'
Dil Bechara marks casting director Mukesh Chhabra's directorial debut.
Saif Ali Khan has been signed on to play an important cameo.
