There were reports in the media that the Telugu remake of ’96’ is under trouble as the producer wasn’t happy with the director's decision of retaining music composer Govind Vasantha. But when asked, sources close to the team vehemently denied it as rumors.
Prem Kumar who directed the original Tamil version is helming the remake and he has retained Govind Vasantha for the Telugu version. Govind has actually recently delivered tunes for the Telugu version. We also hear that Prem has also finalized the two teen actors to play Sharwananth and Samantha’s school portions.
To be produced by leading Telugu producer ‘Dil’ Raju, the principal shoot of the film will begin in the month of April.
