96 Kannada Remake: Check out these new stills
As reported by us recently, the blockbuster Vijay Sethupathi-Trisha starrer ’96’ is getting remade in Kannada and Telugu. The Kannada version titled ’99’ has Ganesh and Malayali actress Bhavana in the lead roles. The movie’s first look poster was released recently on Valentine’s Day. A few more stills have been released by the makers now. The movie is being directed by Preetham Gubbi and produced by Ramu Films. ’99’ also happens to be the 100th project for the film’s music director Arjun Janya.
Upon its release last October, ’96’ emerged as a huge success. It is unarguably one of the most sensational blockbusters in South Indian cinema in recent years. Directed by cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Prem Kumar, ’96’ tells a a poignant tale of two childhood sweethearts who get to meet after two decades for a school reunion.
Since the storyline has an universal appeal, the makers of the remake versions will be hoping that it will be lapped up by the respective audiences. Bhavana, who has been away from movies post her marriage, is making a comeback of sorts with ’99’. She was last seen in Kannada in the blockbuster Shiva Rajkumar starrer ‘Tagaru’. ’99’ will be her second film with Ganesh after sharing screen space with him in ‘Romeo’.
