The Hindi adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars has finally got a title. Fox Star Studios and debutant director, Mukesh Chhabra have decided to call the Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi-starrer Kizie Aur Manny. The title highlights the names of the actors who are playing the title role.
The adaptation is based on the bestselling book by John Green, which is a heart-warming love story about two youngsters who take you on a journey of love, life and hope against all odds. Music Director A R Rahman will be composing the soundtrack for the film.
Speaking about the project Rucha Pathak, chief creative officer, Foxstar India, says, “Finally the stars have come together for our Indian adaptation of Fault in our Stars. We’re especially happy that the script that we’ve been developing over the last few years is seeing the start of shoot and the title itself has come so organically from the Indian characters in the film.”
Rucha further adds, “Kizie & Manny are characters from the imagination of Suprotim Sengupta, who wrote the screenplay and Shashank Khaitan, who gave them wonderful voices through his dialogues. And finally Mukesh Chhabra is going to bring Kizie and Manny to life. We’re looking forward to a great shoot!”
Debutant Director Mukesh Chhabra, who has begun shooting today in Jamshedpur, says, “We are making the film as a beautiful love story which plays out between the two main characters. I have tried to keep it as simple as possible which is why we decided on this title that has the ring of a rhyme, like Bunty aur Babli.”
