The Fault In Our Stars author John Green praises Sanjana Sanghi; mentions the tragic loss of Sushant Singh Rajput

Published: 30th October 2020

Author John Green, whose book The Fault In Our Stars inspired the recent Hindi romantic-tragedy, Dil Bechara, has praised the film's lead actor, Sanjana Sanghi.

In a message sent to the actor, Green also spoke of the tragic loss of Sushant Singh Rajput, who co-starred with Sanjana, portraying the role of Manny.

Sanjana, who essayed the role of Kizie, posted a screenshot of the message from Green on Instagram. "I saw the Dil Bechara film today and really enjoyed it. I thought of your performance — full of humour and heart and deep wells of emotion. Thank you for giving such wonderful life to Kizie, and doing so, giving new life to Hazel Grace Lancaster."

The bestselling author, while mentioning Sanjana's late co-star, Sushant, wrote, "I can only imagine how difficult this whole process has been with the tragic loss of your co-star. I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you for helping bring the film to life."

With the screenshot she posted, an excited Sanjana wrote that she felt annoyed with herself for missing the text for three months. "Thank you for giving us the most broken but beautiful world of The Fault In Our Stars, for watching our labour of love the very day it released, for embracing Kizie, who has both given and taken away so much from me, and for giving us Hazel Grace Lancaster," she added.

Dil Bechara, directed by Mukesh Chhabra, is a remake of the 2014 Hollywood hit The Fault In Our Stars, which is based on John Green's 2012 bestseller of the same name.
