Sharwanand and Samantha starring 96 Telugu Remake was launched recently. The team will fly to Kenya for a 15 days schedule later this month. This is the first time a Telugu movie is being canned in Kenya. Further schedules are planned in Vishakapatnam and Hyderabad. C. Prem Kumar who directed the Original also roped in for this Remake as well.
Govind Vasantha, who scored mellifluous music in the original, has started composing the songs for the Telugu version. 96 is a nostalgic romantic drama, featured Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha as the lead pair. This is a sort of experiment for Dil Raju since many feel that it is not easy to replicate the magic of the Tamil Classic.
