Though Varun Dhawan is busy shooting for two films currently, the actor has decided to take up yet another project which is none other than the remake of the popular Hollywood film and an adaptation of one of the international bestsellers, ‘The Fault In Our Stars’. Also the film will have Deepika Padukone playing the leading lady.
The Fault In Our Stars is a story of a young girl suffering from cancer who decides to attend a Cancer Support Group after a lot of persuasion from her parents. Destiny takes a turn after she meets a young boy who too has suffered from cancer in this group and the two fall in love. Though primarily it’s a love story, the Hindi remake is said to have a twist as this serious drama will be treated with humour.
The Hollywood adaptation of the novel by the same name that starred Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort released this year and managed to rake in quite a moolah worldwide.
For the Bollywood remake, it is being said that the actors will be playing teenagers. The film is to be produced by Fox Star Studios in association with Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films and is directed by Homi Adajania. It is slated to go on floor in March 2015.
Currently, Varun Dhawan is busy wrapping up the Remo D’Souza directorial ABCD 2 along with Shraddha Kapoor and Sriram Raghavan’s Badlapur starring Yami Gautam and Huma Qureshi. Deepika Padukone, on the other hand, is busy with the promotions of her upcoming film Happy New Year. She also has to complete the shoot schedule of Tamasha directed by Imtiaz Ali and Shoojit Sircar’s Piku with Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan. She will also be seen with Ranveer Singh in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial Bajirao Mastani.
