Today (April 28) is the birthday of Samantha Akkineni, one of the top actresses of south Indian film industry. Fans and friends have been showering wishes on her on social media.
Her husband and Tollywood star Naga Chaitanya made the occasion very special by baking a cake at home. He looked up the recipe online and baked what looked like a chocolate cake from scratch.
Meanwhile, Prabhas has revealed the reason as to why he has not acted with Samantha so far. The ‘Baahubali’ actor said that it is the height difference between Samantha and him that has been preventing him from doing a film with her.
It is to be noted that while Prabhas is 1.83 m tall, Samantha is 1.58 m in height. Fans of the actor and the actress are surprised by this revelation by Prabhas and urging them to act together in near future.
While pursuing a degree in commerce, Samantha worked part-time on modelling assignments. She soon received offers for film roles, and made her acting debut in Gautham Menon’s critically acclaimed Telugu romance film, ‘Ye Maaya Chesave’ (2010), which fetched her the Filmfare Award for Best Debut Actress and a Nandi Award.
Samantha then became the second actress ever to win both the Filmfare Award for Best Tamil Actress and the Filmfare Award for Best Telugu Actress in the same year, for her performances in the films ‘Neethaane En Ponvasantham’ (2012) and ‘Eega’ (2012). Since then, she has primarily opted to appear in the leading female role in hero-centric Telugu and Tamil films, earning box office success.
