Samantha Akkineni Wraps Up 96 Remake; Gets Emotional!

Samantha Akkineni will don the role of Trisha’s Jaanu!

The Tamil film 96 completed a year only recently and the movie still remains close to the heart of every single person. The storyline was subtle and beautiful while the music just enhanced the existing magic. Director Prem Kumar did a brilliant job with a stellar star-cast using a simple storyline. Looking at the success of his film, the director decided to remake the movie in Telugu while he has provided the CopyRights of his story to director Preetham Gubbi for the Kannada remake.

The Kannada film titled 99 starred Bhavana and Ganesh in the lead. While Bhavana played the role of Jaanu, Ganesh played the role of Ram. The film, however, failed to create the magic onscreen.

The Telugu film titled Janu stars Samantha Akkineni and Sharwanand in the lead role. Samantha, who will be seen donning Trisha’s role has wrapped up the shoot and pens down an emotional note regarding the same, “Verified
And it’s a wrap!! Another special film and a role that has challenged me to be better than I was yesterday .. blessed to work with a team that manages to create magic every day.. Thankyou @premkumardop and #sharwanand for being my dream team .. #Janu … living my best life ❤️ …grateful always.”
