Playing Jaanu aka Janaki Devi, Trisha is seen wearing a simple yellow kurta, light blue jeans and a blue silk stole with hair tied into a low ponytail and a tiny bindi on the forehead. Simple yet classy, this has become a look that everybody on social media has been raving about. In fact, clothing showrooms in the city have already started selling the ‘Jaanu’ look!

Trisha even shared a hilarious meme on her character’s outfit, alluding it to a Simpson episode.

The film has even inspired dollmakers to make a Ram and Jaanu doll, something that Trisha even approves!
Trisha @trishtrashers and @VijaySethuOffl are in a different league. From celebrity merchandise to clothes that Trisha wore in the 96 movie, this is absolutely awesome! Kudos to them and also the people behind this! Cheers 🥂#96Movie pic.twitter.com/NQdYfkP8o2

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time one of Trisha’s film created a fashion rage. Back when her film ‘Vinaithaandi Varuvaaya’ released, her role as Jessie was something that people couldn’t easily forget. And the maroon and lime green saree she wears in the film went on to be a top seller in most apparel stores.
