Samantha replaces Trisha

Debutant Director C Prem Kumar’s 96 was one of the best Tamil films in 2018. The love story had Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha playing the lead roles and they literally lived as their on-screen characters Ram and Jaanu.
Ever since the film became a super hit, talks about possible remakes are doing the rounds. It was reported that the film will be remade in Telugu with Nani. Also, rumors suggested that Trisha will be reprising her role in the remake.
Later it was dismissed as rumors and talks about Telugu remake died down. Now, it has been confirmed that Sharwanand and Samantha Akkineni have been roped in to play the lead roles in the Telugu remake.
This film will also be directed by director C Prem Kumar who helmed the originals. Noted producer Dil Raju will be bankrolling this venture under the banner SVC productions.
An official confirmation regarding the same is yet to arrive. It will be good to see how Sharwanand and Samantha would channel Ram and Jaanu in the Telugu version.
