The actress is all set to appear as the central character in Nagarjuna’s next production venture.


At the moment  no one from Nagarjuna’s family has a very promising career  to look forward  to. Nagarjuna himself is reeling under the impact  of  the  failure  of  his latest release  Manmadhudu  2. The magnitude of the failure  has taken Nag by complete  surprise. Since he was also the film’s producer, the losses  incurred at the box office have directly hit  Nag.

He is now  looking at redeeming his home banner Annapurna Studios, and  what better redemption than his daughter-in-law Samantha Akinneni who is  Telugu’s cinema’s no  1 heroine? After a slew of successes, Samantha is a certifiable superstar. In fact she  played a cameo in Manmadhudu 2 and, if reliable  sources, are to be believed, the actress is all set to appear as the central  character in Nagarjuna’s next production venture.

 “It’s a masterstroke,” says  the informed source. “Samantha’s superstardom has lately redeemed  her  husband Nag Chaitanya’s career with Majili. Now it’s Chaitanya’s father’s turn.”

While details of the  project are  still under wraps it is reliably learnt that Samnatha will feature in the central role, with Nag and  Chaitanya  in the cast.
