Just a month after the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, the news is out that a film inspired by the incident is already in the making.
Titled ‘Suicide or Murder’, the film will be directed by Shamik Maulik and feature debutant Sachin Tiwari who bears an uncanny resemblance to the late actor SSR.
Producer Vijay Shekhar Gupta unveiled the poster of the movie along with the announcement.
“A boy from a small town became a Shining Star in the film industry. This is his journey. Introducing @officialtiwarisachin _ as ‘The Outsider’ in #SuicideOrMurder.“
Talking to Indian Express, the Producer stated that this was a movie about how actors from small towns who don’t have godfathers in Bollywood struggle.
“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.”
The makers are in the middle of finalising the script which will be done by August post which the shooting will commence in Mumbai and Punjab.
Vijay Shekhar also said – “This film is being made to break the myth of nepotism and Bollywood mafias spread in Bollywood.”
