Hanima Anand |Jul 20, 2020

Dil Bechara, the last gift of Sushant, will be streamed on July 24th. Though this movie is predicted to be a hit, it’s unlikely to surpass The Fault In Our Stars movie (American version) for these following reasons!

There are several reasons why The Fault In Our Stars movie is hard to be surpassed. It would create a big shadow for Dil Bechara to escape, though the latter is expected to be a hit as this is the very last gift from Sushant Singh Rajput.

Let’s read remarkable facts about the original The Fault In Our Stars movie that poses challenges for our Dil Bechara to surpass.

If The Fault In Our Stars doesn't make you cry, nothing can.

The Fault In Our Stars movie – Impressive numbers

The movie was released in 2014 by the American director Josh Boone, based on the novel The Fault In Our Stars by the talented content creator John Green.

Right from its first day of theatrical run, people knew this movie would be a commercial hit for its touching story, narrated by the excellent performance of the ensemble cast. The cinematic work quickly went viral on social media, attracting a huge number of global adolescents to the theatre.

The fault in our stars movie was made on a reasonable budget of $12 million, translating to Rs. 89 crore but it gained up to $307.2 million for worldwide box office collection. That equals to Rs. 2301.9 crore.

Though the budget for Dil Bechara hasn’t been announced yet, we doubt it could exceed the $12 million figure. Nor could its grossing surpass the whopping amount of over 2,301 crore rupees. Please remember the highest-grossing Indian film of all time (Dangal) could only reach 2,024 crore.

Regarding The Fault In Our Stars cast, the director Josh Boone once revealed that he had to read close to 150 actresses casting for the role, and he decided to meet 50 shortlisted candidates. That is to show the scope of this project.

The American movie of the fault in our stars novel was filmed from 2013 at various places in the world. Some locations for principal photography include Pennsylvania in the USA and Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

The movie, surprisingly, brings a delighted vibe to the audience despite its incomplete love story.

However, there’s one aspect that The Fault In Our Stars movie lost to Dil Bechara is the popularity of its trailer. Although the American movie has made a record at that time with more than 15 million views within one week back in 2014, Dil Bechara quickly became most-liked movie trailer with more than 7.5 million likes and 32 million views within 24 hours.

Back to The Fault In Our Stars movie achievement, it received widely acclaims from both critics and global audience. The film got an encouraging approval rating of 81% on Rotten Tomatoes and high scores from critical reviews. Some called it “exceptionally high-quality mainstream entertainment” for its excellence performance despite being a common romantic drama.

The Fault In Our Stars cast – Vivid portraits of Hazel and Augustus

A crucial factor to the success of The Fault In Our Stars movie is its young talented cast. The director of the film said that among 50 actresses who performed in the casting round, he knew Shailene Woodley was the Hazel he looked for, just after 10 or 15 seconds of her audition.

Below are some facts about the two lead roles of the fault in our stars movie.

Shailene Woodley

Shailene was born in 1991 but she has soon joined the film industry since 1999 when she was only 8 years old. Shailene’s mother is a school counselor while her father works as a school principal in California.

Shailene was chosen for Hazel's role just within seconds of her audition.

Though Shailene wasn’t born in a Hollywood family, she showcased her acting talent at a very young age. She played a minor role in Replacing Dad in 1999 and continued to play the young Jill Hennessy in The District and Crossing Jordan one and two years later.

When Shailene was 15 years old, she was diagnosed with scoliosis which made her suffer from sideways curves in spine. Shailene had to live with a chest-to-hips plastic brace. But that couldn’t stop her from achieving further success.

In fact, Shailene Woodley has left remarkable impressions for roles she portrayed other than Hazel in The Fault In Our Stars movie, namely Beatrice “Tris” Prior in Divergent (2014) or Lindsay Mills in Snowden (2016). The talented actress also worked as the film producer for Adrift (2018) and The Last Letter from Your Love (upcoming).

Ansel Elgort

Ansel Elgort is not working in the film industry only. The 26-year-old actor is also a singer and a DJ.

Ansel pursues a charming gentleman style.

Unlike Shailene, Ansel was born to a producer and a photographer, which granted him more opportunities to be exposed to cinema world when he was young. However, he made his theatre debut at the same age as Shailene, in 2012, at the age of 8. He also joined the movie Divergent in 2014 with Shailene.

Thanks to his excellent performances in both Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars movie, Ansel Elgort was praised among the best actors under 20 in 2014.

Some recent movies featuring Ansel Elgort include Billionaire Boys Club and The Goldfinch.
