Mumbai: Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film ‘Dil Bechara’ got its first theatrical release in New Zealand.

#newzeland 🇳🇿 hosts a special screening of #sushantrajputsingh film #Dilbechara and also becomes the first country to have a proper theatrical release of this film. Since last 100 days not a single case of covid was reported but there is now news that they have discovered 4 new cases in the country. But overall this country is one of the safest 👍. Meanwhile the support for SSR continues world over. Hopefully we should not make a shameful figure in front of the world. #viralbhayani @viralbhayani 🎥 @radiotarana
