Sushant Singh Rajput’s ‘Kizie Aur Manny’ gets a new title ‘Dil Bechara’
Bollywood heartthrob Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi’s upcoming film’s title has been changed from ‘Kizie Aur Manny’ to ‘Dil Bechara’, reports Mumbai Mirror. It is to be noted that the film ‘Kizie Aur Manny’ is an adaptation of Hollywood film ‘The Fault in Our Stars’. It is to be noted that the entire crew of ‘Kizie Aur Manny’ jetted off to Paris last month to complete a crucial portion of the movie.
Interestingly, Saif Ali Khan has also joined Sushant Singh and Sanjana Sanghi’s love story ‘Dil Bechara’. In the film, Saif will be seen playing the role of an author named Peter Van Houten, which was played by the actor Willem Dafoe in the original film. Debutant director Mukesh Chhabra said, “We shot in Paris for a week but Saif was only there for a few days. He gelled well with the team and we had a great time.”
Talking about the title change, Rucha Pathak, Chief Creative Officer of Fox Star Studios told leading tabloid, “AR Rahman, who is composing the music, shared a vibrant and fun number, with lyrics penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. When we heard the song, we found our title in it. It perfectly embodies the theme of our film.”
According to reports, the title of ‘Kizie Aur Manny’ is changed keeping in mind the character of the flick. However, the filmmakers were conscious of the impact on the audience. Mukesh added, “But in retrospect, we felt that viewers would only connect with it after watching the film while ‘Dil Bechara’ is self-explanatory and people will instantly relate to it.”
Sushant Singh Rajput was last seen in ‘Kedarnath’ opposite Sara Ali Khan, whereas Sanjana Sanghi was earlier seen in a song in Irrfan Khan starrer ‘Hindi Medium’. In the song, Sanghi played a younger version of his wife. She was also featured for a short role in Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Rockstar’.
