Jaanu Trailer: Samantha Akkineni and Sharwanand comes together to cherish school romance in 96 remake.
The trailer of Jaanu, starring Samantha Akkineni and Sharwanand was unveiled on 29 January. The remake of Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha's Tamil film 96 is directed by C Prem Kumar, who also directed the original.
The trailer opens to Ram's (Sharwanand) voiceover reciting a poem, "I am the shore that awaits the ferocious waves of the sea. Like the dark cloud that awaits the gentle breeze. My heart awaits your smile and a glance from your eyes. Can't you look at me?"
He is then shown visiting his old high school and eventually running into his old flame Jaanu (played by Samantha Akkineni) at a party. In between montages of their high school years and interaction as adults, Ram can be heard proclaiming his love for her. While Jaanu seems to have grown out of the puppy love, Ram tells her how he has harbored feelings for her long time.
Gouri G Kishan and Varsha Bollamma, who were a part of 96, will be seen in the same roles in Jaanu. Govind Vasantha is the music composer, Mahendiran Jayaraju is the director of photography and Praveen K L is the editor. Dil Raju has produced the drama via Sri Venkateshwara Creations.
The film is scheduled to release on 7th February 2020.
