Recently we revealed that Sanjana Sanghi is Sushant Singh Rajput’s leading lady in the remake of The Fault In Our Stars. The film went on floors this morning in Jamshedpur. The remake of Josh Boone’s 2014 Hollywood romantic drama is titled Kizie Aur Manny, after its lead characters. The makers released the first look poster and the title of the film a while ago.
Mukesh Chabbra who is directing the film while talking about the film’s title told Mumbai Mirror, “The very fact that the story revolves around cancer makes it seem heavy and intense. But we’ve turned it into a beautiful love story which plays out lightly between these two main characters. I’ve 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.”
While talking about his association with the Kai Po Che actor, the director told the tabloid that he had told Rajput that he would cast him in his first directorial. He was quoted saying, “As for Sushant, I was the one who got him his first break, Kai Po Che! and during the shoot of PK where again I was the casting director, I had told him that whenever I directed my first film, he would be in it and he had replied that he would always be there for me. Four days ago, he reminded me of that. In an age of empty words, he has kept his promise.”
