“U-Turn is a film on a universal subject that goes beyond the qualms of language and culture which has been a reason why it is being remade in both Tamil and Telugu with confidence. Since it is also a supernatural thriller it is being dealt carefully. We began shooting last month and have finished the first schedule and we’re well on our way with second schedule started in Special set erected in Booth Bungalow. The cast comprises of Samantha, Aadhi and Rahul Ravindran in vital roles while camera cranked by Niketh Bommi. Additionally, we have actor Naren playing a crucial role as well as Bhumika Chawla who comes in as the surprise element in the movie. The team is going overboard to recreate the original magic and I am confident that we can definitely do it,” said director Pawan Kumar.
