Samantha, who played the heroine opposite Vijay Derakonda, got a hit with the film ‘Khushi’ which was helmed by Shiva Nirvana of Majili fame. Suffering from myositis, she took a break from films for a year. Currently, Samantha is on vacation abroad. Samantha got a huge Bollywood offer before the year break was over. She reached out to the northern audience with the web series The Family Man. She also acted in Hollywood web series ‘Citadel’. The series is yet to be released. In this sequence, it seems that Samantha has been offered to act as a pair with Bollywood star Salman Khan.
The upcoming project will be helmed by Vishnuvardhan, who made the movie ‘Panja’ with Power Star Pawan Kalyan. Salman Khan will play the lead role in this film which will be bankrolled by Karan Johar.
Shah Rukh Khan and South Lady Superstar Nayanthara’s recent release ‘Jawan’ was a successful venture. It seems that Karan Johar thinks that it would be better if Salman had a southern heroine in the film. Along with Samantha, Trisha and Anushka’s names are being considered. However, there is a rumor that Samantha is given more priority. An official announcement is yet to be out.
