Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios says, "It's a
once-in-a-lifetime kind of film, like Eric Segal's Love Story was
for an earlier generation. This story has connected with this
generation deeply and universally. It is a big responsibility for
us to get it right and make an inspiring, heartwarming film for
The Fault In Our Stars is a story about two terminally ill youngsters who fall deeply in love and their extraordinary journey.
On Homi directing the movie, Dinesh says, "The protagonists have
contempt for anything conventional, share a hilarious cynicism and
have an exceptionally unique outlook on life. For me all this reeks
of Homi! So it was a no brainer to offer this to him."
Homi on accepting this project, "It's a story that I really feel
needs to be told here. For me it's poignant at a time when we are
consumed by technology and are manically running this make-believe
race we think is Life. We are such profound idiots to actually
believe we have unlimited time here!"
The shoot of the film is said to start in March 2015.
