South actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu is in the headlines these days due to her personal life. Her divorce with Naga Chaitanya is getting a lot of discussion these days but Samantha is not letting the turmoil in her personal life affect her professional life at all. This is the reason why she is busy signing many films these days. Samantha has recently signed a female-centric film in Telugu, whose shooting is likely to start in November this year.
Apart from this, Samantha has also signed her Hindi project, whose official announcement is going to happen soon. Actually, after the performance given by Samantha in the role of Raji in the webseries Family Man 2, she is being taken hand in hand in Bollywood. Samantha is also showing interest in many projects so she has also bought a house in Mumbai. She is constantly meeting filmmakers in Bollywood and because of this she has trouble coming from Hyderabad to Mumbai again and again, so Samantha will stay in Mumbai for some time after buying a house.
Samantha’s next film is Shakuntalam which is in Telugu. Samantha will be seen in the role of Shakuntala and the film is based on Kalidas’ famous play Shakuntala. Gunasekhar is the writer, director and producer of this film. Recently, Gunasekhar’s daughter Neelima had revealed that Samantha loved the script of the film but was hesitant to sign it as she was doing family planning with Naga Chaitanya last year.
Neelima had said, ‘She wanted to be a mother, she told me that this is her priority. Period films take time to make and because of this she was hesitant to sign it. But we told him that the extensive pre-production work has already been done so a lot of time will be saved. She was happy to hear this and agreed to come on-board.
