There can be no denying that 2017 was a pretty awesome year for the bubbly and lively Samantha Akkineni. In October, she got married to her prince charming Naga Chaitanya and added a new dimension to her life. Thereafter, she received some good news when Raju Gari Gadhi 2 opened to a fairly good response at the box office and impressed critics. A horror-comedy, it was directed by Ohmkar and also had her FIL Nagarjuna in the lead. A few days after that, she tasted success again when Mersal opened to a phenomenal response at the box office and turned out to be the ideal Diwali gift for Vijay fans.
With 2017 in the rearview, Sam has started work on her next big film the Tamil/Telugu remake of the Kannada movie U Turn. A photo of the lovely lady from the shoot location of the film is going viral and making the wait for it difficult. In it, she can be seen in her usual sweet getup as she grabs plenty of attention. We are sure that she will do justice to this one.
In case you were not aware, U Turn was directed by Pawan Kumar—who is directing the remake as well—and featured Shraddha Srinath in the role of a journalist. The Kannada version was well received and helped Shraddha give strong proof of her abilities.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Sam. At present, besides the U Turn remake, she also has Irumbu Thirai and Rangasthalam in her kitty. Irumbu Thirai is an action-thriller and also has Vishal in the lead As far as Rangasthalam is concerned, it is a romantic-drama and has been directed by Sukumar. In it, Sam will be seen alongside ‘Mega Power Star’ Ram Charan. Both films hit screens this March.
