Naga Chaitanya-starrer Premam, the Telugu remake of the eponymous Malayalam blockbuster, which was earlier scheduled for release in August, might be postponed by a month.
According to trusted sources, a crucial portion of the film is yet to be completed and hence the delay in wrapping up the project would further delay the post-production. The makers are yet to shoot two songs, besides some key scenes involving Naga Chaitanya.
Being helmed by Chandoo Mondeti, the film features Chaitanya in three different looks, ranging from a school-goer to a 30-something guy. The film tracks three stages of romance in its protagonist’s life and it also stars Shruti Haasan as Malar teacher, originally played by Sai Pallavi, and Anupama Parameswaran and Madonna Sebastian in their own roles.
The makers have retained two songs from the original and Rajesh Murugesan, who composed the tunes for the Malayalam version, is said to have made the Telugu album even more listener-friendly.
