The news is out. Our own Sushant Singh Rajput has been roped for the popular romantic movie “The Fault in our Stars”. Sushant will play the role of Gus which was played by Ensel Algort in the Hollywood version. The desi version which will also be the directorial debut of Mukhesh Chhabra will be produced by Fox Star Studios. Although the film has finalized the lead actor, the female lead is yet to be finalized.
The Hollywood movie which has seen both critical and commercial success narrates the sensitive story of two cancer patients. The unique love story blossoms between the two, but the energetic and positive Gus dies at the end. Adapted from the John Greene novel, it is one of those movies which will leave its imprint on your mind for a long time.
Now the question is can Sushant pull off this role with the same élan as Ensel Algort? Although his last venture ‘Raabta’ was a Box Office disaster, Sushant’s nuanced performances in MS Dhoni and Kai Po Che have been appreciated by his fans. According to the actor, he loves to experiment with his roles and is not bothered about commercial success.
The Bollywood version of ‘The Fault in our Star’s has seen quite a few change in the star cast with speculations galore about this movie being the launch of Jhanvi Kapoor. It was assumed that Kapoor would be paired opposite Ishan Khatter. But with confirmed news of Sushant being on board, this film will be quite a treat to watch. Our prediction; the film is a yay!
