Mumbai: Dil Bechara actress Sanjana Sanghi was euphoric when she received an appreciation message from author John Green for the movie.
Dil Bechara, also starring late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, is a Hindi adaptation of John Green’s 2012 novel ‘The Fault in Our Stars’. Green, who had sent the “beautiful message” after watching the film, described Sanghi’s performance as magnificent and thanked her for “giving new life to Hazel Grace Lancaster” (on whom her character Kizie was based), Hindustan Times (HT) reported.
John’s note, shared by Sanghi on her Instagram, said, “Hey, Sanjana. John Green here, author of The Fault in Our Stars. I saw the Dil Bechara film today and really enjoyed it. I thought your performance was magnificent–full of humor and heart and deep wells of emotion. Thank you for giving such wonderful life to Kizie, and in doing so, giving new life to Hazel Grace Lancaster. ”
Talking about the sudden tragic death of Sushant, Green wrote, “I can only imagine how difficult this whole process has been with the tragic loss of your co-star. I just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you for helping bring the film to life. I wish you all the best with what I hope is a very bright future.”
Responding to the message, Sanghi wrote in her post, “ITS JOHN GREEN HIMSELF! Could NOT resist sharing this moment with you all. And CANNOT be more annoyed with myself for missing this beautiful message for over 3 months.”
“Thank you for these unfathomable words, John. I will simply never be able to articulate what this means to me. It takes away so much heartache and pain. Thank you for giving us the most broken but beautiful world of ‘The Fault In Our Stars’, for watching our labour of love the very day it released, for embracing Kizie, she has both given and taken away so much from me. For giving us Hazel Grace Lancaster,” the actress further wrote.
