Sanjana Sanghi bags lead role in The Fault In Our Stars remake
It was announced last year that a Hindi version of the film is on the cards with Sushant Singh in the lead
Sanjana Sanghi has been finalised to star opposite actor Sushant Singh Rajput in the Hindi adaptation of 2014 Hollywood film The Fault In Our Stars.
Presented and produced by Fox Star Studios, the shoot will begin by mid-2018. Casting director Mukesh Chhabra will make his debut as a director with this film. Oscar winner AR Rahman is on board to compose the music for the romance drama.
"I met Sanjana first during the casting of Rockstar. She was a young and dynamic girl with great energy. After a few years, we reconnected for a few ad jobs -- she came across as a mature young lady and to my surprise, she was a fabulous actor," says Mukesh.
"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 fit right in, the perfect face. I can't wait to create magic with this talented girl," he adds.
The Fault In Our Stars is based on John Green's bestselling novel of the same name. The Hollywood film featured Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort in the lead.
