The Telugu remake of Malayalam blockbuster Premam has been
titled Majnu, and it features Akkineni Naga
Chaitanya in the lead.
"The official title has been registered as Majnu. The
team plans to start shooting from this year end or early next
year," a source from the film's unit revealed.
To be directed by Chandoo Mondeti, the film will also feature
Amyra Dastur and Anupama Parameswaran as the two leading ladies,
while the makers are on the lookout for the third actress.
"Shruti Haasan is most likely to play the
third heroine. Talks are going on, but nothing has been confirmed
yet," the source said.
Premam, which has emerged as one of the biggest
Malayalam hits, is the coming-of-age love story of its protagonist
spanning through over a decade at different stages in
life. The film will be produced by S. Radha Krishna.
