Naga Chaitanya is slowly getting back to his most celebrated place, with two back to back romantic dramas in his kitty. One being Gautam Menon's Sahasame Swasaga Saagipo, the other is a remake of Malayalam super hit, Premam, titled as Majnu in Telugu.
It is known that Shruti Haasan paired up with Chaitanya for the film and she will donne a deglam role, as a college professor in cotton sarees and no make-up.
She is reprising the role played by Sai Pallavi in the original. Since the character had won many hearts in Malayalam and became very popular among youth in South India, it has garnered a great hype for the Telugu version as well.
On that note, Shruti Haasan's first look as Malar and Naga Chaitanya's getup as George were leaked online from the shooting spot and they are now going viral on social networking sites.
The first schedule of the film has been started with the college love episode and we are yet to know what was Shruti named in the film while the original was Malar. Anupamama Parameshwaran, who had played the role of hero's school crush in Premam, will reprise it in Telugu too.
Though many names were in circulation, Regina is reportedly confirmed for the third female lead. Meanwhile, Check out the slides below to see the pictures of Shruti Haasan and Naga Chaitanya from Majnu.
Shruti Haasan has the challenging job of reprising Malar as the character is already a popular one among movie lovers. We must wait and see how far she will impress in the role.
Nivin Pauly played George in the original and the role needs three different looks to portray the character in different stages of life.
A lot of trolls on Shruti are in circulation by the people, who do not like Shruti to play Malar and it is now a real challenge for the actress to prove them wrong.
The first schedule of the film is happening in Vizag at Andhra University and fans are going in huge numbers to see Chaitanya and Shruti.
The film has been titled as Majnu and the character of Chay is expected to be named as Majnu and Shruti's as Laila.
Shruti's getup from the film has already been raking up some criticism from Malayalam fans, as they do not want to imagine anybody as Malar except Sai Pallavi.
