The Hollywood hit film 'Fault In Our Stars' based on a novel of the same name which has long been reported to have a Hindi remake, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi now has a title, 'Kizie Aur Manny' which was revealed along with the film's first look on Monday.

Star of the film Sushant shared the first look of 'Kizie Aur Manny' on Twitter, with the first look poster specifying "shoot starts today". In the first look, the faces of neither of the stars are visible as they sit together on a bench with their backs to the public. While Sanjana has an oxygen cylinder beside her, Sushant has a Rajinikanth mask on the side of the face.

The shooting of the film will be taking place in Jamshedpur, debutant director Mukesh Chabbra revealed to media. The choice of Jamshedpur was made to get a small-town vibe for the film, Chhabbra said, adding that Jamshedpur has both a big heart and cosmopolitan crowd, making it perfect for 'Kizie Aur Manny'.

Regarding the unusual title of the film, Chabbra, while taking to Mumbai Mirror said that the light-hearted title was chosen on purpose to counter the intense subject matter. The original film and novel tell the love story between cancer patients who meet at a support group.

 “The very fact that the story revolves around cancer makes it seem heavy and intense. But we’ve turned it into a beautiful love story which plays out lightly between these two main characters. I’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible which is why we decided on this title that has the ring of a rhyme, like Bunty aur Babli,” said Chabbra.
