Samantha’s philosophical take on ‘96’ remake failure
The Tamil movie, ‘96’, starring Vijay Sethupathy and Trish won both critical and box-office acclaim and was a mega-success! Director Prem Kumar has presented the script of soft college love in an impressive manner. Trish acted as the heroine, ‘Jaanu’.
96 was remade in Telugu under this title Jaanu, Actor Samantha donned Trisha’s role. This was released recently. However, it did not turn out to be a hit! It had only a kind of ‘lukewarm’ response from the film buffs! Actor Samantha was affected by this failure.
The actor observed in her tweet, “If I need to exchange some info about this movie leaving aside the box-office performance, it is the fulfillment I got by acting in this lovely and challenging role. I have learnt a lot through this film! So, I owe a lot to ‘Jaanu’. Further, the kind and affect5oinat support from you will keep me going.”
