Sachin Tiwari first look in this poster as ‘The Outsider.’
Many people and fans started assuming it as the biopic of Suhant’s life, which is not true. In fact, it is only inspired by his life. This film portrays the struggle and hardships an individual faces as an ‘outsider’ of the industry to become an actor in Bollywood.
Speaking about Sushant’s death, Vijay said that it came as a shock, but it’s nothing new. There are actors who come to fulfill their dreams here but end up not getting work. The film will tell a story of how actors from small towns, who don’t have godfathers in Bollywood, struggle.
