Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi’s Dil Bechara was released digitally on July 24, 2020. Directed by Mukesh Chabbra, the film is the official Bollywood adaptation of John Green’s novel titled The Fault In Our Stars. The novel was earlier made into a film in 2014 and starred Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley. The Hollywood version was a complete adaptation of the book while the Bollywood version was adapted with modifications in order to cater to the sensibilities of the Indian audience. Check out the key differences between both the films.

What makes Dil Bechara different from The Fault In Our Stars?

The first meeting

Kizzie meets Manny in her college while Hazel meets Augustus during a support group meeting. Kizzie enters her college and hears someone dancing to South Indian songs. When she walks further ahead, she sees Manny. Later, Manny performs at the college event and dances with Kizzie as well. He approaches her at a bus stop later and offers to drop her home.

Hazel’s mom makes her go to a cancer support group. When Hazel walks in and is unable to take the lift, she turns to take the stairs and runs into Augustus. He later attends the cancer support group and Hazel discovers that he has cancer as well. He approaches her after the session and asks her if she wants to watch a film.

One of the songs from his album is incomplete and Kizzie wants to meet him to ask why he left it incomplete. 

The foreign trip
