Samantha Akkineni is currently busy in the promotional activities of her upcoming woman centric movie ‘U Turn’, which is gearing up for grand release on 13th September 2018. The mystery thriller drama, which is directed by Pawan Kumar, is remake of Kannada movie of same title, in which Shraddha Srinath played the lead role. Recently during the media interaction, Pawan Kumar opened up about Samantha starrer U Turn and revealed that he made few changes in its Telugu version. He added that the last 30 minutes is totally different from the original version. He made the Telugu version of U Turn different only for Samantha.
Pawan Kumar’s Lucia was hit in Kannada and later he directed and produced his third movie U turn, for which he received superb response and appreciations for its presentation. Now he is eagerly waiting for the release of Tamil and Telugu version of U Turn, in which Samantha Akkineni is playing the lead role and will be seen playing a journalist.
When Pawan Kumar was asked what are the changes made for the Telugu and Tamil versions for Samantha, he said, “The entire story of U Turn was not based on any real-life incident. We only took the U Turn part and sketched the screenplay. Though the theme of Telugu and Tamil versions too remains the same but in Samantha starrer, we have talked about the traffic problems faced by the people of these two states. I have changed the last 30 minutes portion of U Turn from the original Kannada version. Samantha starrer U Turn, will be an enhanced version of the original story. In Kannada version, the flyover played the main role and as the illegal U Turn took the lives of many people in the city of Bengaluru.” Pawan Kumar added that he will not remake his own movies in future as it is a tedious process.
