#ReBoot: 'A Fault In Our Stars' to get the BOLLYWOOD treatment

Despite the recent glut of mega-blockbuster action flicks, Bollywood's heart has always been with the soppy melodrama and Fox Star Studios has revealed plans to adapt one of the most deeply affecting films to come out of Hollywood in recent years.

The Mumbai-based studio has reportedly bought the rights to 'A Fault In Our Stars', the critically acclaimed drama about two teenage cancer sufferers who fall in love.

Fox Star Studios CEO Vijay Singh told the Hollywood Reporter:  “We think the story will have an emotional [connection] with Indian audiences  The original English version was released (in India) a couple of weeks ago and is still running.

"The film has done a business of about $1 million. We had actually thought of adapting it locally even before the film was released here.”

Details about the adaptation, including cast and crew, are still being worked out.

'A Fault In Our Stars' is adapted from the novel of the same name by John Green and has been a huge commercial success as well, raking in nearly $300 million on a shoestring budget - at least by Hollywood terms - of just $12 million.

Directed by Josh Boone, the film stars Shailene Woodley as a cancer sufferer and Ansel Elgort as a cancer survivor. 

The two meet at  a patient support group and embark on a deeply moving journey that even takes in the Anne Frank Home in Amsterdam.

The Hindi version of the film will be the latest adaptation by Fox Star Studios who are on a bit of an adaptation binge at the moment: the studio was behind 'City Lights', Hansal Mehta's moving re-boot of 'Metro Manila'. 

The studio also recently unveiled the teaser for Hrithik Roshan's peculiarly-named 'Bang Bang', a re-imagining of the Tom Cruise action flick 'Knight and Day'.
