Only recently, a big announcement was made that director Vignesh Shivan would helm a film titled ‘Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kadhal’ and it would feature Vijay Sethupathi, Samantha Akkineni and Nayanthara in lead roles.
However now, it has emerged that Samantha has opted out of the project, since the actress is in family way. Reports also claimed that the actress has withdrawn from all the other films that she had signed and has decided not to act in films for the next two years.
However, there is no confirmation from Samantha or her husband Naga Chaitanya, who is one of the leading actors in Telugu cinema.
Only recently, Samantha successfully completed 10 years in film industry. It was on 26 February 2010 she made her acting debut in the film ‘Ye Maaya Chesave’ opposite Naga Chaitanya.
Since then, there is no looking back for the actress, who is now of the leading heroines in southern film industry. Meanwhile, reports suggest that Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Akkineni are hoping to launch new talent through their new production house.
Also, speculations are rife that Samantha will soon make her debut into Telugu television. She is rumoured to be hosting the Telugu version of the all-women show ‘Kodeeswari’ in the near future.
