The Telugu version of C.Prem Kumar's 96 which will again have him wielding the megaphone, has finalized original composer of 96 Govind Vasatha for the remake as well. The confirmation was given by Govind himself who took to his Facebook page to write:
96 Telugu remake which is a production venture of Sri Venkateshwara Cine Creations, will see actors Sharwanand and Samantha reprising the roles of Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha.
Despite talks that the remake will take place in 2009 instead of the 1990s, the makers recently made a casting call for an actor between the ages of 14 and 20 to play the younger version of the hero and interested candidates can touch-base with them with details and 10 pictures at SVC034@gmail.com.
The shooting of this yet untitled film is expected to begin in March, 2019 and the film plans to release by August, 2019.
