Popular casting director Mukesh Chhabra will be making his directorial debut with the Hindi remake of the bestselling novel by John Green – The Fault In Our Stars. Produced by Fox Star Studios, the movie will star Sushant Singh Rajput as the male lead. The actor will be seen playing Ansel Algort’s character, Gus, a cancer survivor who falls for the terminally-ill Hazel (originally played by Shailene Woodley).

According to recent reports, Kriti Sanon‘s sister and YouTube sensation Nupur Sanon was chosen as the leading lady. But there’s no truth to those stories as of now.

Chhabra reacted to the rumours saying, “It is absolutely untrue. Sushant and I are both professionals who respect each other and would never interfere in or influence each other’s decisions in any way. These are only speculations. The casting is not yet finalised.”

I guess we will have to wait and find out who will be cast opposite Sushant in this one.
