Shruti Hassan has been having a wonderful time in the entertainment industry for the last few years. After the success of her 2015 blockbuster movie Srimanthudu, the actress is now making headlines for her song Rehnuma with John Abraham in the movie Rocky Handsome, which is currently one of the trending songs on YouTube.
It seems like the actress is in on a roll as the latest news coming from the Tollywood industry suggests that Sruthi has completed the shooting for her 2016 release Premam – a Telugu remake of the hugely popular Malayalam movie by the same name.
The Telugu version of Premam will have Naga Chaitanya in the lead role. Shruti Hassan will play the role of a graduate teacher, who falls in love with a student – played by Chaitanya.
In addition to Shruti Hassan, the movie also features two other female leads, Anupama Parameshwaran and singer turned actress Madonna Sebastien – both were part of the Malayalam version of the film.
The first look of the film has generated tremendous interest and the makers want to wrap it up early so that they can release it this summer. Despite a busy schedule, Shruti wrapped up her part for Premam. She’s looking glamorous and the scenes have come out really well,” said a source from the film’s unit.
A remake of Malayalam blockbuster with the same title, Premam has been doing excellent pre-release business. “Given the success of the original film, the pre-release buzz has been amazing and there’s a heavy demand to bag the distribution rights of the film,” the source added.
Now, when the same movie is re-created in Telugu, Shruti Hassan expects to deliver a performance in par with her Malayalam counterpart.
We will only know for certain if Shruti is good as a teacher onscreen, when Majnu, which is the title of the remake, comes out in May.
Directed by Chandoo Mondeti, Premam also features Anupama Parameswaran and Madonna Sebastien in important roles.
