The story of Hazel Grace and Augustus isn't over yet—it's getting a Bollywood remake.

The hit teen romance movie "The Fault in Our Stars" stole all of our hearts—and tears—this summer, and now Mumbai-based Fox Star Studios will adapt the film in Hindi for a Bollywood audience.

Based on author John Green's novel of the same name, the movie follows the love story of two cancer patients, played by Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.

“We think the story will have an emotional [connection] with Indian audiences,” said Fox Star Studios CEO Vijay Singh. “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.”

The Indian studio is still working out the details regarding the cast, crew, and production. We are looking forward to seeing another interpretation of this summer's favorite love story.
