Sanjana Sanghi has perhaps received the best compliment in her entire life to date, and, unluckily, she’s seen it three months late. The Fault in Our Stars author John Green, on whose novel her film, Dil Bechara, was adapted from, left her a personal note praising her performance, calling it “magnificent” and thanking her for “giving new life to Hazel Grace Lancaster” while also adding a few words about the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput who played the male lead from his book.
After watching Dil Bechara soon after its release, John Green took to social media and wrote: “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. 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.”
In response, Sanjana Sanghi took to Instagram and wrote; “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. It fills my heart up to know you felt I even came close to doing justice to the depths of her emotional journey. Indebted to you, forever. A forever fan. TFIOS all the way!”
Well, that must have certainly made Sanjana’s day, week and year.
