The previous Rs.100 crore films of Samantha Akkineni are Dookudu, Their, 24, Kaththi, Janatha Garage, Attarintiki Daaredhi and Mersal, all of which have achieved this most coveted number. Samantha Akkineni goes past Anushka Shetty, in this category, who had 6 films to her credit including the recently released Bhaagamathie. Already a top star in South Indian cinema, with this achievement by Rangasthalam makes Samantha Akkineni one of the biggest actor in South Indian cinema and puts her at the top of the list. Samantha Akkinenim will also be seen in a slew of films this year which includes Mahanati, U-Turn, Irumbu Thirai, Super Deluxe and Seema Raja. Since these films are also with few top stars and directors, it is expected that one of them achieve another 100-cr collection at the box office, making it 9 for Samantha Akkineni.
