Grammy-award winner, AR Rahman, who currently has an entire slew of movies including 'Beyond the Clouds', 'Le Musk', and Rajinikanth's '2.0' in the pipeline, has reportedly taken up a Hindi film. It has become official that the music maestro will score music for the Hindi remake of popular Hollywood film 'The Fault in Our Stars'. To be directed by Mukesh Chhabra, the film features Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role.
“When I heard the narration of their Indian adaptation of 'The Fault in Our Stars' and especially how music is so beautifully woven into the narrative, I got quite excited,” Rahman said. Chhabra is ecstatic over getting Rahman onboard. “As a casting director, I have worked on many films with Rahman Sir but it was like a dream come true when he agreed to do the music for this film,” he said. “It is truly a hand of encouragement and boost for a debutant director like myself to have AR Rahman sir on board,” Chhabra added.
Adapted from a John Green novel by the same name, the film is based on two teenagers, both suffering from cancer. Produced by Fox Star Studios, the Indian adaptation marks Chhabra's directorial debut. While the original focused on the female and her relations, casting of a female lead in the Hindi remake is currently under development.
