It seems that finally, the Fox Star Studios in tow with Mukesh Chhabra have found their female lead in ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Hindi Medium’ actress Sanjana Sanghi for the Hindi adapation of the Hollywood blockbuster and Fictional success, ‘The Fault In Our Stars’, a romantic drama with Sushant Singh Rajput in the male lead.
Now, we have both our Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace, well, this is definitely exciting. It will be quite a refreshing chemistry with one of the most endearing and heart wrenching plot-line as its story.
Rucha Pathak, Chief Creative Officer, said, “Mukesh called me out of the blue one day to meet her… and she had a striking and yet innocent personality but what really caught my attention was when Mukesh screen tested her. She nailed it in her audition and we knew right away she was our leading lady. We’re now looking forward to launching this talented young lady in Mukesh’s directorial debut.”
While, confirming Sanjana Sanghi, director Mukesh Chhabra, said “I met Sanjana first during the casting of ‘Rockstar’. She was a young and dynamic girl with great energy. After a few years she reconnected for a few ad casting jobs – she came across as a mature young lady and to my surprise she was a fabulous actor. I was instantly sure that I would love to make a film with her one day. Once ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ script was ready, she fitted right in, the perfect face. Well I can’t wait to create magic with this talented girl.”
Although, it will be quite the competition to do justice to the phenomenal fiction written by John Green, as even the Hollywood adaptation of ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ starring Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley got mixed reviews but still came to be a blockbuster regardless!
Presented and produced by Fox Star Studios the shoot for this best-selling novel’s live-action will take place by mid of 2018. Well known casting director Mukesh Chhabra will be making his debut as a director with this film, while A R Rahman will compose the music for the romance drama.
