Telugu social media has been highly skeptical about 96 remake and many couldn't think off a good replacement for Vijay Sethupathi, Trisha and both young actors.
Even Dil Raju, Telugu producer who bought the remake rights before anyone could is also thinking on the casting and we are hearing dIfferent names everyday.
Nani, Gopichand and even Allu Arjun have been considered by the producer. But no one is ready to take on the challenge as the story demands them to look older.
But in Kannada producers found Golden star Ganesh, who got the name with Mungaru Male and delivered a hit like Chammak, recently.
Kannada Industry depends on remakes more than originals hence, they could start the work more faster than Telugu. Still, the million dollar question, who suits the hero character in Telugu? Remains unanswered!
