After a lot of back and forth and several cast changes, we revealed to you how Sushant Singh Rajput has been finalised as the lead actor of The Fault In Our Stars remake.Reports suggested that Karan Johar had bought the rights of the Hollywood film a couple of years ago and was planning to make it with Alia Bhatt or Ishaan Khattar and Jhanvi Kapoor. However, we can now confirm that Fox Star Studios were the ones that always had the official rights of the film and are now producing the Hindi remake. The movie is being helmed by casting director, Mukesh Chhabra, who has already started working on the original Hollywood script to make it an Indian audience-friendly movie. In fact, Mukesh himself confirmed that The Fault In Our Stars will be his directorial debut, with Sushant in the lead, when he mentioned, "Yes, I am on board for The Fault In Our Stars remake. I'm working on the script at the moment. Sushant is the leading man and we are still in the process of casting the heroine."
As he mentioned, while Sushant has been finalised for Ansel Elgort's role, the makers are still trying to figure out as to who should play Shailene Woodley's character.
