96 Movie Stills Starring Vijay Sethupathi, Trisha

Sun TV said it will telecast 96the love drama which became talk of the town in Kollywood, for Deepavali. However, Trisha Krishnan has said it would be unfair and have asked them to wait till at least Pongal to bring the film to TV.

Many fans of the film also called the channel out for spoiling the theatrical run of the movie. They claimed Sun TV was doing this in order to push 96 out of the theatres, and thus secure more screens for Vijay’s Sarkar, releasing this Deepavali and produced by Sun Pictures.

Starring Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha Krishnan in the lead, ’96 is a romantic drama written and directed by Prem Kumar. Produced by Nandagopal of Madras Enterprises, the music for the film has been composed by Govind Vasantha of Asuravadham fame. The film also stars Janagaraj, Kaali Venkat, Bagavathi Perumal, Devadarshini and Aadukalam Murugadoss.
