96 Kannada Remake: Here’s the first look poster
As reported by us earlier, the blockbuster Vijay Sethupathi-Trisha starrer ’96’ is getting remade in Kannada and Tamil. The Kannada version titled ’99’ has Ganesh and Malayali actress Bhavana in the lead roles. First look poster of the movie was released today on the occasion of Valentine’s Day. The movie is 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.
’96’ 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. The storyline has an universal appeal and the remakes, both Telugu and Kannada, will certainly appeal to 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’. The team has finished shooting most of the film except for one song which will be completed by the end of this month. They are eyeing a grand release for Ugadi.
