Well recalling how language became a barrier between the two to converse, the actress revealed that Sushant on the last day of her shoot asked if she will call him through phone. "Naani aap mujhe phone karoge?", the actor reportedly asked the charming veteran actress, to which she replied, "Bhasha nahi maloom (I don't know the language)".
Talking to a leading entertainment portal, the actress was quoted as saying, "Language was a barrier between us. But the shooting days of Dil Bechara are some of the most memorable days in my career. My heart sinks when those memories flash through my mind. I wish I had spoken to him."
She remembered Sushant as someone who was very cheerful on the set, who would come to meet her as soon as she reaches the location. "We were like grandmother and grandson in real. We used to always dance on the sets. They were all great dancers and I too used to join them. I also used to sing Hindi songs for them. They used to encourage me and we really had fun together", Subbalakshmi added.
Meanwhile, the makes of Dil Bechara announced that the movie will have a direct release on Disney + Hotstar for members and non-members, on July 24. Directed by Mukesh Chhabra, the movie is an adaptation of John Green's novel, The Fault In Our Stars.
