There can be no denying that this is a terrific time for the cute and bubbly Samantha Akkineni. In October, she tied the knot with her sweetheart/ popular young star Akkineni Naga Chaitanya and added a new dimension to her career. The two got married on October 6 according to Hindu traditions in a memorable ceremony. Thereafter, they walked down the aisle and tied the knot as per Christian traditions. A few days after the big day, Sam received more good news as her ‘Raju Gari Gadhi 2’ opened to a good response at the box office and received rave reviews along the way. In it, she was seen alongside her FIL Nagarjuna and made an impact with her performance.
Talking about her character, she had said that it was dedicated to those who suffered because of the infamous ‘Suchi Leaks’ controversy.
“Amrutha’s character is a message to each and every person who opened the ‘Suchi Leaks’ videos, laughed at those videos and circulated them. Whenever Amrutha cries in the film, I did not need glycerine for I could understand the pain of the parents, families and well-wishers of the women in those videos. I played the role of Amrutha for all the women victimized in such a manner,” she had told a leading daily.
A few days after ‘Raju Gari Gadhi 2’, Mersal arrived in theatres and set the box office on fire. In it, she was seen alongside Vijay and delivered an effective performance. An action-thriller, it also had Nithya Menen in the lead and turned out to be a Diwali treat for ‘Thalapathy’ fans.
Speaking about ‘Mersal’, she had said that working on it was a good experience for her.’
“He has a great command over his craft, and it’s very endearing to see that kind of positivity and confidence. I believe that’s also a reason why someone as experienced as Vijay, who has worked with the biggest of names in the industry, came back to Atlee for a second time (after Theri) because there’s some magic in this man. I think he’s going to strike gold again in his own style. Mersal is like a complete showreel for Vijay,” she had told a popular website.
Now, she is in the limelight for a terrific reason. As it so happens, a photo of the young diva is going viral on the social media and that too for all the right reasons. In it, she can be seen alongside the talented Ashok Selvan. As expected, the two look quite good together and seem to be having a good time. Sam and Ashok Selvan got clicked while shooting for an ad in Chennai yesterday.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Sam. At present, she is gearing up for the release of ‘Irumbu Thirai’. In it, she will be seen alongside the much-loved Vishal and ‘Action King’ Arjun. Directed by PS Mithran, it has already created a buzz amongst fans courtesy its posters and could do well at the box office.
At the ‘Irumbu Thirai’ teaser launch, Samantha had said that it could turn out to be the best film of Vishal’s career.
“I feel like Vishal is younger than me. Irumbu Thirai will be one his best films, he has given a career-best performance and I am very confident about the success of Irumbu Thirai.Irumbu Thirai doesn’t look like a film from a debutant. I have hardly worked with debutants but PS Mithran did not seem like one. He has already exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to be part of this film,” added Samantha,” she had added.
Besides ‘Irumbu Thirai’, she also has ‘Rangasthalam’ in her kitty. The film has been directed by Sukumar and will see her share screen space with Ram Charan for the first time ever.
