Sushant Singh Rajput is casting director Mukesh Chhabra’s hero for his directorial debut, the Hindi remake of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ (2014). While Rajput had been finalized last year, his leading lady was yet to be found. Chhabra has now confirmed that they have found her in Sanjana Sanghi.
Chhabra confirmed the developments, “I met Sanjana while casting for Rockstar and found her to be a dynamic girl with great energy. After a few years, she reconnected for a few ad jobs and this time she came across as a mature young lady and to my surprise, a fabulous actor. I knew instantly 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. She’s the perfect face and I can’t wait to create magic with this talented girl.”
Fox Star Studios is producing the film, and Chief Creative Officer Rucha Pathak is excited to launch Sanghi. Pathak said, “She has a striking yet innocent personality but her screen-test really caught my eye. She nailed her audition and we knew right away she was our leading lady. We’re looking forward to launch her.”
Sanghi also played the teenage Meeta, (Saba Qamar’s character) in ‘Hindi Medium’ (2017).
