Producer Sandip Ssingh, who has said that he shared a close bond with Sushant Singh Rajput, shared a poster of an unfinished movie that was to star the late actor. Sandip took to Instagram to share the poster of ‘Vande Bharatam,’ where Sushant would presumably have been in the lead role. Sandip says the movie was to be Sandeep’s directorial debut with Sushant and promised that he will make the movie in the actor’s memory. 

“You made me a promise. We, the Bihari brothers, will one day rule this industry and be the inspiration/support system for all young dreamers like you and me bhai. You promised me that my directorial debut will be with you. Raaj Shaandilyaa wrote this and we were to produce this together,” Sandip wrote on Instagram.

“I need your belief, that faith you showed, that was my strength. Now, with you gone...I'm lost...but I promise you this my brother. Now tell me how do I fulfil this dream? Who will hold my hand like you did? Who will give me the power of SSR, my brother?” he added in the post.

“I promise you this... I will make this film! And it will be a tribute to the loving memory of SSR who inspired millions and gave them hope that anything is possible! Just dream it and believe it!” he said.

“Those hours of discussions on this film we dreamed to make together...the film 'Vande Bharatam'...now all I am left with is your memories and this poster which was our dream starting to come true, this film my brother, will be the symbol of the undying light of your soul,” the producer said, adding a ‘heart’ emoji.
