The official Hindi movie remake of The Fault in Our Stars has been titled, Kizie Aur Manny. It is directed by casting director Mukesh Chhabra, who has been responsible for some genius casting in movies like Haider, Tamasha, Gangs of Wasseypur and Kai Po Che. Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi are going to play the leads in the romantic drama, which is adapting the hit romantic drama, starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. The Fault in Our Stars, in turn is adapted from the bestselling novel of the same name, written by John Green. Kizie and Manny has started shooting today, in Jamshedpur.
And for those, who have remained untouched by the mania of the romance drama, around the globe, The Fault in Our Stars is a story of a girl named Hazel Grace, who is suffering from Thyroid Cancer, and has to breathe through the help of a Oxygen container, and meets a charming boy, Augustus Waters, who lost his leg because of Bone Cancer. It is their love story, and how one copes with the disease, without losing their hopes and spirit to live.
Sushant is an odd choice for the role, since the character is in the teens, and Sanjana Sanghi is only 21 years old. But, Mukesh, who is a master at identifying talent, is surely going to make the movie a comfortable experience and there is much excitement of the performances of the leads. When the movie was officially announced, Shailene, Ansel and John generously gave their approval on the social media, and seemed ecstatic about the remake. The colorful poster shows the character siting on a bus, and facing away from us. Kizie has a oxygen container beside her, which indicates the details have not been changed from the book, while Manny is wearing a Rajinikanth mask.
