The lovely Samantha Akkineni is beyond any doubt one of the most popular actresses in Telugu cinema today. And, she is going through an awesome phase in life right now. Nearly two months ago, the diva tied the knot with her sweetheart/actor Naga Chaitanya and began a new chapter in life. The two first tied the knot as per Hindu traditions in a grand ceremony. Thereafter, on October 7—the day after the Hindu wedding—these lovebirds got married as per Christian customs much to the delight of their well-wishers. To make matters better, Sam’s ‘Raju Gari Gadhi 2’ hit screens days after her marriage and did well at the box office. In it, she was seen alongside her Father-in-Law Nagarjuna and delivered an effective performance. Talking about the film’s success, she had called it a tribute to those who had suffered because of the Suchi leaks scandal.
“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,” Sam had told TOI.
Post ‘Raju Gari Gadhi 2’, Samantha continued her tryst with commercial success when ‘Mersal became a runaway hit at the box office and earned good reviews along the way. In it, she was seen alongside Vijay and delivered a sincere performance. Talking about the film, the young lady had called praised director Atlee and called him an excellent storyteller.
“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 website.
