Samantha Akkineni has announced that she will start shooting for the Tamil-Telugu remake of Kannada film U Turn in February.
She posted on her microblogging page: “2018 Everything I want !! Shoot begins in Feb for @pawanfilms #Uturn #Tamil and #Telugu , produced by Srinivasaa silver screen. Thankyou always for your support.”
The film which was originally directed by Pawan Kumar in Kannada will also helm the remake. The film follows an investigation led by a female journalist relating to an accident- prone junction where people die when they try to violate traffic rules.
Pawan says, “Both Samantha and I had other film commitments. So, we couldn’t start the project earlier. But now, things have fallen in place and we will begin shooting in February.”
Actors Aadhi and Rahul Ravindran have been roped in for the remakes. “Aadhi will be essaying the cop’s role and Rahul will play Samantha’s boyfriend in the film,” says the director.
In Tamil, Samantha is busy with the yet-untitled Sivakarthikeyan-Ponram film, Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s Super Deluxe and she has also completed the shoot of Vishal’s Irumbuthirai.
