Dil Raju, who, is currently enjoying the success of his recent offering F2 Fun and Frustration, has opened up about his next upcoming production venture, the remake of Tamil movie 96 in which Trisha Krishnan and Vijay Sethupathi played the lead role. It is known news that in its Telugu remake Samantha and Sharwanand are going to essay the lead roles. Few weeks ago, Samantha Akkineni made a tweet regarding 96 remake, which created lot of buzz on social media.
After watching 96 Samantha Akkineni wrote on her Twitter, “@trishtrashers watched #96TheFilm .. my god What a performance !! Can’t begin to tell you how amazing you were masterclass in acting and such a difficult chatecter to play . God bless .. continue to just rock this show
Samantha’s fan asked her, “Hearing that u r going to do @trishtrashers role in Telugu remake.. Is that true sam?”
Samantha Akkineni replied to him, ”Shouldn’t be remade.”
Recently during the media interaction, Dil Raju responded on Samantha Akkineni’s tweet and said, “Samantha had made this comment/tweet on 96 remake in haste. She might have made that statement as she didn’t know who were part of the remake.”
96 Telugu version will be helmed by Prem Kumar, who also directed the Tamil original. Sharwanand will play the male lead in the film. The regular shoot will commence soon.
Dil Raju further said, “I am very confident that Telugu audience will like it. To not to lose flavour of the film, I immediately brought Prem Kumar on board to helm its Telugu version. He too promised that he would make the film in such a way. Changes will be made in the script and the film will go on floors from the month of March.”
On the other side, Samantha is also busy in romantic entertainer Majili.
