Released a couple of months back, the ‘Makkal Selvan’ Vijay Sethupathi-Trisha starrer, 96, went on to become a critical as well as commercial hit. Directed by Premkumar under the Madras Enterprises banner featuring music by Govind Vasantha, the romantic drama is all set for a Kannada remake now under the title 99 with 'Golden Star' Ganesh and Bhavana under Pretham Gubbi’s direction.
It is said Bhavana wasn’t too keen initially to taking up Trisha’s role since she doesn’t agree to remakes, but agreed to coming on board 99 after she watched 96 and found the story to be universal. As of now, filming is expected to kick off from December 17 under the Ramu Enterprises banner.
It must be noted that despite being telecast in a month’s time, Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha’s 96 continues to be revered.
