After announcing the name of actor Sushant Singh Rajput as the male lead of his directorial debut, well-known casting director Mukesh Chhabra has now confirmed the female lead of his upcoming venture. The movie, which is going to be the Hindi remake of the hit Hollywood film, The Fault In Our Stars, will feature Sanjana Sanghi as the leading lady.
“I met Sanjana while casting for Rockstar and found her to be a dynamic girl with great energy. After a few years, she reconnected for a few ad jobs and this time she came across as a mature young lady and to my surprise, a fabulous actor. I knew instantly that I would love to make a film with her one day. Once The Fault in Our Stars script was ready, she fit right in. She’s the perfect face and I can’t wait to create magic with this talented girl,” the casting director-turned-filmmaker Chhabra says.
The remake is being bankrolled by Fox Star Studios. Talking about Sanjana, Rucha Pathak, the Chief Creative Officer of the Studio, says, “She has a striking yet innocent personality but her screen-test really caught my eye. She nailed her audition and we knew right away she was our leading lady. We’re looking forward to launching her.”
Sanghi has previously been seen in Bollywood films such as Rockstar, Hindi Medium and Fukrey Returns. The Faults In Our Stars remake will mark her full-fledged debut in a leading role.
