Mumbai: Originally a best-selling book, and then a blockbuster; The Fault in Our Stars has been loved by audiences, especially the youth, around the world. The film did very good business when it released in India too and garnered tremendous word of mouth. The film is now being remade in Hindi by Fox Star Studios - who have the original rights to the film and the book.

Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, says, "Every once in a while comes a special film that goes on to define the emotions of a generation. The Fault In Our Stars resonates with the emotions of today's youth and has found appeal across audience demographics. We are hugely excited to be adapting the film for Bollywood and can't wait to get started!"

The makers are currently gearing up to adapt the script to suit Bollywood sensibilities. The Hollywood film narrates the story of a sixteen-year-old cancer patient, who falls in love with an ex-basketball player - also a cancer survivor. It is a poignant love story that has touched many hearts. The producers are sure they will recreate the same magic in the Hindi version.

The Fault In Our Stars was directed by Josh Boone and starred Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort - the two have now become America's hearthrobs after doing the movie. The film was made with a budget of 12 million dollars and grossed over 260 million dollars worldwide, making it a thunderous success story.
