The film is a sequel to the super hit 1991 movie with the same title. It features Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Mahesh Bhatt’s daughters, Pooja Bhatt and Alia Bhatt. It is worth mentioning that Dil Bechara is an official adaption of the world-famous novel ‘The Fault in our stars’. Kriti Sanon’s Mimi, Kunal Kemmu-Rasika Duggal starrer Lootcase and Shiddat: Journey Beyond Love directed by Kunal Deshmukh are the other movies to join the league.
