Much loved Tamil Blockbuster '96' starring Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha Hindi remake's rights have been bagged by Producer Ajay Kapoor. This 2018 drama followed the story of two high school sweethearts from the batch of 1996 who meet at a reunion, 22 years after they moved apart. The cast and director for the remake are yet to be announced.
Kapoor said he decided to adapt “96” in Hindi as the heartwarming, light-hearted romantic tale had the ability to transcend language barrier. The Producer stated,“The story breaks the barriers beyond the bounds of language and region, which prompted me to remake the film in Hindi for the national audience."
He further added,“I am actively working on developing the right script for the narrative along with the director and right kind of starcast. Once we finalise everything, I would soon like to make the official announcement of the cast and crew."
Directed by C Premkumar, “96” was praised for its nuanced performances and went on to become a blockbuster upon its release. Kapoor also wrapped up the production of his upcoming John Abraham led film "Attack". He is also backing a big budget film based on Afghanistan rescue crisis, titled "Garud".
