Sun TV, who has been more active in acquiring the Kollywood movies’ rights recently has also bagged satellite rights of Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha starring romantic story ’96’.
As the channel has bagged the satellite rights of Trisha and Vijay Sethupathi-starrer ’96’, it decided to telecast the film on the Diwali evening. The film is directed by Prem Kumar and has Vijay Sethupathi playing the role of a wildlife cinematographer. The film also has Aadukalam Murugadoss and Kaali Venkat as part of the star cast. The film’s director Prem Kumar had earlier handled the cinematography of Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom, which starred Vijay Sethupathi in the lead.
Sun TV has also got broadcast rights of the bankable star Vijay Sethupathi’s upcoming Oru Nalla Naal Pathu Solren. It is directed by Arumuga Kumar, produced by 7C Entertainment and Amma Narayana Productions likely to hit screens on Jan 26th.
’96’ movie has Vijay Sethupathi as a travel photographer and Trisha is all set to romance Sethupathi for the first time onscreen.
96 is a sweet love story that is about Ram and Janu’s romance right from their school days. 96 is a very special film and it’s also the first time that Trisha is sharing the screen space with Vijay. 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.
It’s a love story and we haven’t worked before, so it makes it a fresh combination. Love is underplayed in the film. We don’t play characters who express their love in words. We don’t say it to each other but it still gets conveyed. You’d find our performances very genuine because we didn’t really act.”
No one expected 96 to create the kind of hysteria it did! Says Trisha: “Honestly speaking even we didn’t expect it to (laughs) It’s too overwhelming, I really didn’t expect this to happen ever again in my career. Of course, I value it and cherish it but at the same time, it’s not something I take seriously because it happened on it’s own. It’s nice to see that all the hard work has paid off”
So many fans enjoyed the movie in theatre and not many expected this film to be telecasted this soon in a TV channel. On knowing the information so many fans took twitter to troll and make fun of Sun Tv.
Now to our shock on knowing the news, Trisha, the lead lady of the movie feels that it is not fair to telecast the movie this soon. As the film is successfully running in theatres for the 5th week, the actress wants to ban the premium in the television.
Her tweet read “Its our 5th week and we still have an 80% occupancy in all theatres.We as a team feel its unfair to be premiering 96 this early. Its our request to push it to a Pongal viewing pls
@SunTV Will be grateful #96thefilm #Ban96MoviePremierOnSunTv“
