’96’ stood as one of the finest films the Kollywood industry had seen with award-winning performances from leads Vijay Sethupati and Trisha. The film also gained good traction at the box-office raising the bar for the remake rights. Tollywood star producer Dil Raju bought the Telugu rights for a whopping amount entrusting the helming responsibilities to Prem Kumar K who directed the original version. While the film is on the last leg of the shooting schedules, the makers have released the first look poster of the film, which also dropped the title of the awaited remake.
The film is titled ‘Jaanu’, probably after the lady lead’s character name. However, this has triggered new discussions in the Telugu Film Industry as the name was rumoured to be taken by Prabhas for his next film with director Radha Krishna. Though it was not stated on an official note, news that the period love story starring Prabhas and Pooja Hegde was titled ‘Jaan’ or ‘Jaanu’ went rife well before the unit kickstarted the shooting schedules. However, the title reveal of Sharwa-Samantha’s next has come as a sweet shock for the fans.
