When it comes to B-town, our directors are obsessed with remakes. Maybe directors totally get moved by Tollywood and Hollywood scripts or maybe B-town directors are just short of ideas. Anyways, keeping these thoughts aside, we are yet again all set to make a remake of a popular Hollywood film.
Well, you obviously know which movie we are talking about. ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ has been in news for a very long time. Earlier it was reported that Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khattar and Jhanvi Kapoor will be making their Bollywood debut with this film, but soon the buzz about the same fizzled out.
However, now it looks like everything is back on track and Sushant Singh Rajput has been locked in for the project and will be seen stepping into Ansel Elgort’s role.

The film is set to go on floors next year and will be directed by popular casting director Mukesh Chhabra.
A source confirmed the speculations to a leading daily and said, “Mukesh was the one who introduced Sushant to Abhishek Kapoor for ‘Kai Po Che’! He had always wanted to work with him and felt he would be perfect for this film. He is currently on the lookout for his leading lady. Though inspired by the Hollywood film, the script will be adapted to Indian sensibilities.”
Well, it would be interesting to see how the famous novel is adapted as per Bollywood standards and if the narrative will be loved by the viewers or not. Now that Sushant will be seen playing Gus’s character, we are not sure about how much he fits the character. Maybe Ishaan was the right choice for the role. Or perhaps Sushant might surprise us with his acting in this one.

Confirming the same Chhabra said, “Yes, I am on board for The Fault in Our Stars remake. I’m working on the script at the moment. Sushant is the leading man and we are still in the process of casting the heroine.”
What’s left for us is to see who is signed in as the leading lady, maybe that would change our entire perspective. Till then, let us know if you think Sushant is the right pick. And who do you think should be locked in for the female lead?
