'The fact that you get to spend the rest of your time by your mother's side, I know, gives you the only happiness you wanted in the world.'
Sushant Singh Rajput's last release will be the long-delayed Dil Bechara, a remake of the Hollywood film The Fault in Our Stars.
Casting Director Mukesh Chhabra makes his directorial debut with the film.
Sanjana Sanghi, Sushant's co-star in the film, can't get over the fact that the actor is no more.
She breaks down as she bids goodbye in this video.
Sanjana also writes Sushant a touching note:
Abhi toh itna kuch baaki tha, Sushant?
You gave me a forever, within a limited number of days, and for that. I'm forever grateful. Our beloved novel, The Fault In Our Stars.
A forever of learnings, and of memories.
I refreshed my Web pages 100 times hoping I'm reading some sort of horrible joke. I'm not equipped to process any of this. I don't think I ever will be.
I'm definitely not equipped to articulate my feelings, this is me failing, but trying.
After two years of seemingly all the possible difficulties one single film can face, with all sorts of crap constantly being written, and being relentlessly pursued.
We were supposed to FINALLY see our film -- my first film, and what you told me you believed was your best film yet, together.
Amidst your journey, you somehow found a way and had a desire to yell out to me from the opposite side of set screaming "Rockstar, itni achi acting thodi na karte hain paagal!"
To guide me over things big and small through our film's process,
To tell me to conserve my energy on set;
To discuss even the smallest nuance you thought could change the narrative of a scene and would wholeheartedly accept my disagreement;
To discuss ways in which we could together forge a brighter educational future for the children of India.
You were a force Manny, and you always will be.
We're going to spend an eternity to try and make sense of what you've left us behind with, and I personally never will be able to.
I simply wish you never left us behind in the first place.
Just know, you have a country full of millions, looking up at you, smiling at you, thankful for you.
As you smile back at us, from up above.
The fact that you get to spend the rest of your time by your mother's side, I know, gives you the only happiness you wanted in the world.
