Fox Star Studios announced on Monday that the Hindi remake of the movie The Fault in Our Stars (2014) will star newcomer Sanjana Sanghi and Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead roles. The remake marks casting director Mukesh Chhabra’s filmmaking debut.

Based on John Greene’s bestselling novel of the same name, Boone’s film stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. The novel is about Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16-year-old cancer patient who meets Augustus Waters, another cancer patient, at a support group.

Sanjana Sanghi has appeared in small roles in Rockstar, Hindi Medium and Fukrey Returns. “I met Sanjana while casting for Rockstar and found her to be a dynamic girl with great energy,” Chhabra told Mumbai Mirror. “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.”
