Every actress would love to be essayed in a film, in the way Trisha was portrayed in her latest film “96” in which she paired opposite to Vijay Sethupathi as his love interest. 96 is a very special film and it’s also the first time that Trisha is sharing the screen space with Vijay Sethupathi. In an interview with Indian Express, the actress revealed that one of the only reasons that she signed the film was because she wanted to work with Vijay. She said, “I was quite intrigued by the script when I heard it the first time. The other factor that really drew me to this film was the opportunity to work with Vijay.
Now the teaser of its remake “Jaanu” has been released in youtube. The teaser shows Samantha and Sharwanand replacing the roles of Samantha and Vijay Sethupathi. The video gives us a sneak peek into the world of childhood sweethearts who grow apart over time. However, years later, they meet again at a school reunion. To our surprise, this film is also directed by C.Premam Kumar who made the original.
