Recently during the media interaction, Sivakarthikeyan has said that he is eager to watch Samantha Akkineni’s Silambattam skills on the big screen. This is the first time Sivakarthikeyan and Samantha have paired against each other. The sources say that Samantha is playing a village belle and actress Simran is playing antagonist in Seema Raja, which is being bankrolled by R. D. Raja, under the banner of 24AM Studios and the film has the music by D. Imman.
Ponram has helmed three movies, and all of them with Sivakarthikeyan. Their previous ventures, Rajini Murugan and Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam, were huge hits at the box office. Seem Raja is said to be a rural entertainer, which brings back the hit comedy duo Sivakarthikeyan and Soori. Soori is currently basking in the glory of Karthi’s recent offering Kadaikutty Singam. The film Seema Raja is scheduled to hit the theaters on 13th September 2018.
This year, Samantha Akkineni has been the part of three hit movies- Rangasthalam, Mahanati and Abhimanyudu. Apart from Seema Raja, Samantha will also be seen in bilingual Tamil-Telugu film U Turn, the remake of Kanannda movie of same name, in which she is playing journalist. She is also waiting for the release of Super Deluxe.
