Samantha Akkineni has refuted reports appeared in a few sections of the media, suggesting that she would play the lead role in a biopic on badminton champion P V Sindhu.
According to sources close to the actress, she has neither been approached nor keen to portray the world badminton champion as physically there are no similarities between the two of them.
At present, Samantha is busy doing the lead role in the Telugu remake of Tamil super hit ’96’. The original had Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha in the lead, while the Telugu version has Sharwanand as protagonist.
Recently, on the 60th birthday of her father-in-law and Tollywood top star Nagarjuna Akkineni, Samantha posted: “What everyone seeks you have found … Just being around you I have learned to only look within for happiness … ”
She added: “It is your beautiful mind, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love … You have defeated age my mama … #happybirthdayking. You will continue to inspire generation after generation … You are pure goals.”
