Popular film ‘The Fault in our Stars’ (2014) is all set for a Hindi remake in the form of ‘Kizie Aur Manny’, to be directed by casting director Mukesh Chhabra, who is marking his debut. He recently spoke about how the Hindi version will differ from the original.
“The very fact that the story revolves around cancer makes it seem heavy and intense. But we’ve turned it into a beautiful love story which plays out lightly between these two main characters. I’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible which is why we decided on this title that has the ring of a rhyme, like Bunty aur Babli”, said Chhabra, according to Ahmedabad Mirror.
The film will be kicking off in Jamshedpur. When asked why there, Chhabra said, “So you have a South Indian living next to a Bengali family, while a Parsi and a Bihari could be neighbours. I needed a place with a small town vibe and had heard a lot about Jamshedpur from Imtiaz (Ali) and R Madhavan. When I came here for recee, I knew instantly that this was where I wanted my love story to take root”.
