Recently, Samantha Akkineni watched Vijay Sethupathi- Trisha’s critically acclaimed and commercially accepted romantic drama ’96’.
Heaping praise on Trisha’s lovely performance in the film, Samantha tweeted “@trishtrashers watched #96TheFilm ..My god What a performance !! Can’t begin to tell you how amazing you were masterclass in acting and such a difficult character to play . God bless .. continue to just rock this show”.
Later, when a fan asked whether Samantha would reprise Trisha’s role in the remake, the U-Turn actress said that ’96’ shouldn’t be remade. There was a buzz that both Nani and Samantha shown interest to remake ’96’ in Telugu but it looks like the latter has opted out of the film.
We hear that the Telugu remake is likely to be bankrolled by ‘Dil’ Raju and Prem Kumar who made the original version is in talks to helm the project.
