With the news doing the rounds, and audiences waiting in anticipation for the Indian remake of the famous book�� ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ (2012), it seems like everyone will have to wait a little while longer for things to get going.
Filmmaker Homi Adajania who will be responsible for the project, has gone on record to express that the film is still in it’s very early stages. “Yes, I have been asked to make a Hindi adaptation of the best-selling book ‘The Fault In Our Stars’. As of now, it’s being scripted and only after I lock the draft will we finalise the cast and decide when to shoot it,” NDTV reported Adajania explaining.
In the meantime, the director is gearing up for his forthcoming film in which he has signed Sushant Singh Rajput opposite Alia Bhatt. Talking about the yet untitled project, Adajania expressed, “It’s a fresh pair. Both actors are young and I think there is a nice organic balance between the two. It is not a remake, it is a fresh script written by Dinesh Vijan and it is his story. It is not going to go out before next October, so it is premature to discuss it now.”
Known to make rather unconventional films, many of Adajnia’s films have been under a ‘hit-and-miss’ umbrella, with his most successful being ‘Cocktail’ (2012) which starred Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty. Here’s hoping his next few projects will prove his talent a little more.
