There are various hollywood movies which bollywood filmmakers are too intrigued to make movies on and The Fault In our Stars is surely on top of the list. This english romantic movie is definitely known worldwide and was a blockbuster hit in 2014. Karan Johar was the one who got the rights keeping Alia Bhatt in mind for the lead role, but the movie has been a subject of various speculations about the leading pair.
Newbies Ishaan Khattar and Jhanvi Kapoor were considered as lead couple for months now and now Sushant Singh Rajput will be playing the lead role in the film. Another big news is casting director Mukesh Chabbra will be debuting as director with this remake of this blockbuster romantic film! Mukesh Chabbra in an interview has said that he had always wanted to work with him and felt Sushant would be perfect for this film. The search is still going on for his leading lady.
The original film, The Fault In Our Stars, is based on John Green’s novel of the same name. This is a story of a teenager Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) who meet each other at a cancer support group and then embark on a life-changing journey which brings them even closer. We have seen an ample number of remakes inspired by the Hollywood films, but the script of this one will be adapted to Indian sensibilities.
Sushant Singh Rajput has been audience’s favourite in the year which is going on. His last movie Raabta was not a big hit on the screens but he on the other hand garnered applause for his individual performance. It will be a pleasing thing to see this remake in hindi cinema as the original received worldwide recognition with strong critical and commercial success for its portrayal of this sensitive love story that blossoms between the two lead characters.
