Sushant Singh Rajput was to co-produce self-starring patriotic film, Vande Bharatam, reveals producer Sandip Ssingh

Film producer Sandip Ssingh on Saturday shared a poster of a film called Vande Bharatam on his Instagram account. The movie, which was set to be Ssingh’s directorial debut, written by Raaj Shaandilyaa, presumably starred late actor Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role. The poster featured Rajput prominently against the backdrop of tricolour.

Ssingh revealed that the Rajput was supposed to co-produce the upcoming feature as well. He wrote, "You promised me that my directorial debut will be with you. Raaj Shaandilyaa wrote this and we were to produce this together. 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."

He further wrote that the film will be a tribute to the late actor, "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!"
