The fantastically popular teen romance The Fault in Our Stars is headed for Bollywood fame.
Fox Star Studios is planning a Hindi-language remake of the film, which is based on the John Green young adult novel about a 16-year-old cancer patient who falls in love with an ex-basketball player, who is also a cancer survivor.
The Hollywood hit grossed more than $263 million worldwide, but only banked less than $1 million in India, Entertainment Weekly reports. Fox Star Studios Vijay Singh told the Times of India he’s optimistic about an adaptation.
“The story resonates with the emotions of today’s youth and has found universal appeal,” Singh said. “We are excited to adapt the film for Bollywood and can’t wait to get started.”
The movie hasn’t been cast yet.
