Cinematography turned director Prem Kumar, who wrote and directed 96, has also helmed the Telugu remake titled Jaanu. He has apparently made some changes to the script to suit the taste of the Telugu viewers.  Samantha Akkineni and Sharwanand are playing the roles of Trisha and Vijay Sethupathi in the romantic entertainer. Music composer Govind Vasantha is marking his debut in the Telugu industry with this flick. Jaanu is funded by Dil Raju’s Sri Venkateswara Creations production house. 
A few days back, Samantha had tweeted about completing her portions for the movie. She tweeted saying that the role challenged her to be better than she was before. Yesterday, 7th of January, we witnessed the first look of Jaanu being released. It was simple but artistic just like the first look poster of 96. Now the makers have announced that the teaser of Jaanu will be release tomorrow (9th Jan) at 5.00 PM.
