This year Tamil cult Romantic drama '96' starring Trisha and Vijay Sethupathy which was absolutely viral and given numerous nostalgia moments is now to be remade in kannada. DilRaju bought the telugu rights and Ramu Enterprises bagged the kannada rights.
Goldenstar Ganesh will be playing the role Vijay Sethupathy, while Preetham Gubbi will be directing this project. Preetham's team already started the pre production work. Already music director Arjun Janya started composing music. This movie comprised 7 songs.
In actual Preetham and Ganesh were working on a different subject. Preetham shares that i was very much impressed with 96movie when i had watched in theatre, was really mesmerised. Immediately called Ganesh and again we both watched the movie together. We felt this is an absolutely well narrated feel good film and thought of making this film in kannada. When i had thoughts of making this film i had only Ganesh in my mind. As the producer Ramu has the rights, i had conveyed my interest in making this project and everything fell in place.
Preetham had made around 9 films and never made any remake. He says i would'nt feel any bad to make an attempt to remake this film. It was very relatable. 99 will have fresh feel and the will contain the soul of 96.
Preetham says we have bought the rights of screenplay, but the music and other elements will be entirely different. I am pretty confident that this movie will give different makecover to Ganesh. I knew people are watching films of other languages, i still feel that the content is absolutely fantastic this would work in kannada. However i am making this film for two reasons. One is i had loved this film other is Ganesh would justify the role Ram.
After completing couple of schedules of the film Geetha, Ganesh will start his shooting for 99. The shooting will commence from new year. This particular schedule will go on for 40days. The shooting will go in the locations Bengaluru and Mangaluru. Makers already fixed their release date, they are planning to release it in March 2019. However the other cast and crew yet to be finalised particularly in search of heroine Trisha's role who can live up to the character of Janu. Preetham also mentions the real challenge is ahead.
