Naga Chaitanya and Shruti Haasan starrer Premam, the Telugu remake of Malayalam blockbuster Premam, will hit the screens on August 12.
A coming-of-age love story, the film features Chaitanya in the role of Nivin Pauly, while Shruti Haasan will be seen as a Malar teacher, originally played by Sai Pallavi. This is the first time Chaitanya and Shruti have teamed up and their pairing has raised a lot of eyebrows and anticipation.
Directed by Chandoo Mondeti, the film also stars Anupama Parameswaran and Madonna Sebastian, who were both part of the original movie.
In one of his recent interviews, Chandoo assured fans that the remake will live up to the expectations of the original. Talking about the way the film has panned out, he said that theyâ€™ve done full justice to their adaptation.
The college portion, which became a crucial part of the original, was shot in Andhra University in Vizag. He also revealed that Shruti, for the first time in her career, will be seen in saris throughout her portion in the film.
The makers have retained couple of the songs from the original, simple because of their popularity and Chandoo wanted to give these tracks a new spin in his film.
