I think I might be obsessed with The Fault In Our Stars after watching the movie. It struck a chord and now we have confirmation that producers Fox Star Studios have decided to make the smash-hit romantic film in Bollywood.
Originally a best-selling book, and then a blockbuster; The Fault in Our Stars has been loved by audiences, especially the youth, around the world. Even when the film recently released in India, it did very good business and garnered tremendous word of mouth. Therefore, the film is now being remade in Hindi by Fox Star Studios – who have the original rights to the film and the book.
Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, says, “Every once in a while comes a special film that goes on to define the emotions of a generation. The Fault In Our Stars resonates with the emotions of today’s youth and has found appeal across audience demographics. We are hugely excited to be adapting the film for Bollywood and can’t wait to get started!”
The makers are currently gearing up to adapt the script to suit Bollywood sensibilities. The Hollywood film narrates the story of a sixteen-year-old cancer patient, who falls in love with an ex-basketball player – also a cancer survivor. It is a poignant love story that has touched many hearts. The producers are sure they will recreate the same magic in the Hindi version.
The Fault In Our Stars was directed by Josh Boone and starred Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort – the two have now become America’s hearthrobs after doing the movie. The film was made with a budget of 12 million dollars and grossed over 260 million dollars worldwide, making it a thunderous success story.
We can’t wait to know how this story develops, who will direct the Bollywood remake and who will star in it. Watch this space as we bring you the updates.
