The yet-untitled film had a six-month shooting schedule and was supposed to be wrapped up in November.
Talking about the movie, the director said it was a romantic comedy, that would have explored Sushant's dancing skills. "He was a fantastic dancer and my film would have showcased him in a different light," Rumy told the publication.
Sushant's last film, Dil Bechara, is yet to be released. Directed by Mukesh Chhabra, the movie also stars Sanjana Sanghi, while Saif Ali Khan will be seen in a cameo. It is based on John Green's popular 2012 novel The Fault in Our Stars.
