From past few months the film The Fault In Our Stars has been in the spotlight due to the numerous talks about the movie being remade in Hindi. The latest news about the remake is that Fox Star Studios and Dinesh Vijan have decided to team up with Homi Adajania for the Hindi adaptation of this Hollywood blockbuster.
Fox Star Studios will team up with with Dinesh Vijan's Maddock Films to produce the remake after their last collaboration with Finding Fanny. Dinesh says, "For me, the core of this story has resonated at a very personal level. It's an out-and-out love story based on such a beautiful premise."
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 Indian audiences."
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.
