The weepy teen romance The Fault in Our Stars, which stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as cancer-stricken young lovers, will get a Bollywood makeover. Fox Star Studios is planning a Hindi-language remake of the summer hit, which has grossed more than $263 million worldwide. The film was not an enormous success in India, where it banked less than $1 million, but FSS CEO Vijay Singh (no, not that Vijay Singh) expressed confidence to the Times of India that a Bollywood version of John Green’s bestseller would connect.
“The story resonates with the emotions of today’s youth and has found universal appeal,” he said. “We are excited to adapt the film for Bollywood and can’t wait to get started.”
No actors have been cast yet for the remake, nor has a director been chosen.
