Director Mukesh said in a statement, “Sushant was not just the hero of my debut film as a director, but he was a dear friend who stood by me through thick and thin. We had been close right from Kai Po Che to Dil Bechara. He had promised me that he would be in my first film. So many plans were made together, so many dreams were dreamt together but never once did I ever imagine that I would be left alone to release this film. He always showered immense love on me while I was making it and his love will guide us as we release it.”
Earlier, Sanjana had shared an emotional video, in which she recounted her experience of shooting with Sushant. “After 2 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 watch the film, our labour of love, together - my first, and what you told me you believed was your best film yet,” she wrote in her caption.
The film was slated to release in theaters on May 8, but got delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now it turns out that Sushant's last film won't even release on to big screen, followig the footsteps of his last release 'Drive'
