‘The Fault In Our Stars‘ by John Green is one of the most beautiful fiction I had ever had the pleasure to read. Now, this creation is going to have its own Hindi adaptation, titled as ‘Kizie Aur Manny’.
Earlier on, I was pretty excited about the news of a Hindi remake being made starring Sushant Singh Rajput. After all, the ‘Kai Po Che‘ has phenomenal acting skills that we can’t doubt! However, I can’t really be as excited about the title as John Green himself is. The actor got engaged in a twitter conversation with John Green on Wednesday evening.
Green tweeted: “I want to see this movie more than I have ever wanted to see any movie.”

Well, Sushant Singh Rajput responded with a well-thought-out message, as he tweeted: “It’s such a wonderful book, John, thanks once again for writing it, and we shall try our best not to let you down. And while we shoot, the roller coaster is just going up, my friend… Namaste John Green”
It’s such a wonderful book John, thanks once again for writing it, and we shall try our best not to let you down. And while we shoot, the roller coaster is just going up, my friend.😉

While Sushant plays the title role of ‘Augustus Waters’, the female character ‘Hazel Grace’ is being played by debutante Sanjana Sanghi in the movie. Unlike the Hollywood adaptation of the book, I have a feeling that Sushant has quite the chance of overpowering the female lead. If that’s not the case, then comes the angle of a debutante director, after all, it is a first Mukhesh Chhabra directorial.
However, it is still too early to judge anything for the movie that has gist begun with its shooting. It still has a lot of potential and too many chances of being one of the biggest blockbusters. Meanwhile, shooting for the movie has already started in Jamshedpur and parts of it will be shot in Kolkata and other areas of Delhi.
