Samantha has become Akkineni Samantha in last October and she has three massive hits this year with Rangasthalam, Mahanati, and Abhimanyudu. But then, suddenly there are rumours that she will be bidding goodbye to act in early 2019 as she is planning to go family way. Our sources in Akkineni Compound rubbish these reports.
“She is already on the verge of signing two more biggies and they will be announced very soon. There is no question of retiring any sooner. She also has no immediate plans of becoming a mother,” they said. Samantha is going to romance Naga Chaitanya in a film directed by Ninnu Kori fame Shiva Nirvana and she also has a film, U-Turn which is nearing the completion.
Her recent role in Rangasthalam is treated as one of her career-best performances. The appreciation for the role and her new responsibility as the daughter-in-law of Akkineni Nagarjuna ensured that she does not opt for glamour roles and concentrate only on performance oriented roles going further. There are also rumours that she may produce some small films introducing fresh talents on Annapurna Studios Banner very soon. But then, she will quit films and enjoy motherhood when it is due.
