Top producer Dil Raju was pretty impressed with Tamil film 96 and he acquired the remake rights of the film even before it released in Tamil. The remake is titled Jaanu and it featured Sharwanand, Samantha in the lead roles. The film released today and is getting decent appreciation from the multiplex audience. One who watched 96 and Jaanu can clearly know the school episodes are chopped in Telugu. They look more gripping in Telugu.
While Prem Kumar wanted to go with the original, Dil Raju suggested minor changes for those episodes to impress Telugu audience. After watching the final cut, Raju is said to have chopped content close to ten minutes from the school episodes after he felt that they were unnecessary. The emotional episodes along with the performances of Sharwanand, Samantha are widely appreciated. The film is expected to end up as a decent hit.
