The 2018 romantic drama 96 directed by C Premkumar centres around the story of two high school sweethearts from the batch of 1996 who meet at a reunion, 22 years after they parted ways.
The cast and director for the remake are yet to be officially declared. Producer Ajay Kapoor mentioned that he is determined to adapt 96 in Hindi because he believes the heartwarming and light-hearted romantic story has the power to transcend language barrier.
In a press release, 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.”
“I am actively working on developing the right script for the narrative along with the director and right kind of star cast. Once we finalise everything, I would soon like to make the official announcement of the cast and crew,” he added.
