Mumbai: Fox Star Studios and Mukesh Chhabra have finally zeroed in on ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Hindi Medium’ actress Sanjana Sanghi in the Hindi adapation of the Hollywood blockbuster, ‘The Fault In Our Stars’, a romantic drama with Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead.

Rucha Pathak, Chief Creative Officer, said, “Mukesh called me out of the blue one day to meet her… and she had a striking and yet innocent personality but what really caught my attention was when Mukesh screen tested her. She nailed it in her audition and we knew right away she was our leading lady. We’re now looking forward to launching this talented young lady in Mukesh’s directorial debut.”

Confirming Sanjana Sanghi, director Mukesh Chhabra, said “I met Sanjana first during the casting of ‘Rockstar’. She was a young and dynamic girl with great energy. After a few years she reconnected for a few ad casting jobs – she came across as a mature young lady and to my surprise she was a fabulous actor. I was instantly sure that I would love to make a film with her one day. Once ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ script was ready, she fitted right in, the perfect face. Well I can’t wait to create magic with this talented girl.”

Presented and produced by Fox Star Studios the shoot will begin by mid of 2018. Well known casting director Mukesh Chhabra will make his debut as a director with this film, while A R Rahman will compose the music for the romance drama.

‘The Fault In Our Stars’ is based on John Green’s bestselling novel and a 2014 Hollywood blockbuster starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.
