Fans of hit romantic Tamil film ’96’ have found a new reason to cheer! Ram and Jaanu, played by actors Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha respectively, is one of Tamil cinema’s most-loved couples. Their love story continues to haunt the audience as it did not have a happy ending.
Recently, at the 100th-day celebration event for ’96’, Tamil actor R Parthiban, known for his humour and wit, said that he was waiting for the pair to hug each other throughout the film but they never did. Upon his invitation, the lead pair obliged graciously and joined each other on stage for a hug.
