It was announced today that The Fault in Our Stars, which was only released in theaters around the world last June, will be localized and adapted into Hindi.

Vijay Singh, head of Fox Star Studios India, revealed the news about the Bollywood makeover. “We think the story will have an emotional [connection] with Indian audiences,” said Singh in a statement released by The Hollywood Reporter. “The original English version was released here 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.”

A director and cast have not yet been chosen, but details are being worked around.

Based on the book by John Green, The Fault in Our Stars was a big success for the studio, Fox. With a budget of only $12 million, the film made over 10 times that amount on the domestic box office. The movie’s success has quickly moved another John Green book into pre-production, as it was announced this week that Paper Towns will hit theaters on July 31, 2015.
