The lovely Samantha Akkineni is going through an awesome phase in life these days. In October, she tied the knot with her ‘Prince Charming’ Naga Chaitanya and began a new chapter in life. The two got married as per Hindu traditions on October 6 in a grand ceremony. Thereafter, the very next day, they walked down the aisle in a Christian ceremony. Shortly after her big day, she received more good news when her ‘Raju Gari Gadhi 2’ opened to a good response at the box office and received positive reviews along the way. In it, she was seen alongside FIL Nagarjuna and essayed the role of a ghost. Talking about the film’s success, she had said that her character was a tribute to those who 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,” she had told a leading daily.
Merely five days after the release of ‘Raju Gari Gadhi 2’, she tasted success again when ‘Mersal’ became a phenomenal success and received the thumbs up from fans. In it, she was seen opposite Vijay and managed to make a mark. Talking about working with Atlee, she had said that he is a talented 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 leading website.
Now, Sam is in the news again. As it so happens, X-mas is just around the corner. And, Sam-Chai are gearing up to celebrate the festival for the first time as a married couple. The ‘Nan Ee’ actress has been sharing some pics of their Christmas celebrations and sending her fans into a state of frenzy. Through the pics, we get a glimpse of the Akkineni Christmas tree and other decorations in the household. We are sure that Christmas will be terrific for the two.
In case you did not know, their love story began on the sets of ‘Ye Maya Chesave’. Sometime ago, Sam had said that it was a case of love at first sight.
“I fell in love with him the moment I met him on the sets of Ye Maaya Chesave, and we have been there for each other ever since. Nothing is more real in my life than him right now,” she had added.
On a related note, this is a busy time for both these heartthrobs. Sam currently has ‘Rangasthalam’ in her kitty. It is a romantic drama and will see her star opposite Ram Charan for the first time ever. Sometime ago, Chiranjeevi had given the thumbs up to the film and called it a classic in the making.
“Recently, Chiranjeevi along with Rajamouli and others saw the rushes of the film and were surprised to see that the film has come out beautifully, almost like a classic. He is satisfied with the way the film has shaped up,” a source had told a leading daily.
As far as Chai is concerned, he is currently shooting for ‘Savyasachi’. In it, he will be seen opposite ‘Munna Michael’ star Nidhhi Agerwal. Sometime ago, Chai had said that he will be playing the role of a man with a disability in the film.
“My left hand will be non-functional in the film and the story revolves around the consequences I face as a result of it. The situations the lead actor faces are unique, and are inspired from real-life. I am quite excited to begin work,” he had told a daily.
