Samantha Ruth Prabhu grabbed the limelight this week for her Shakuntalam poster. The actress looked like a dream in all-white attire and flower garlands in place of jewelry. She is playing the lead role of Shakuntala in the mythological movie.
She also completed 12 years in the film industry this week and shared a post thanking all her fans for love and support. Fans and friends congratulated her on her successful journey in Tollywood. Through her role in The Family Man 2 and her item number in Pushpa: The Rise, Samantha has now made an impression in Bollywood. She will be soon seen in a Hollywood project.
Two big movies- Ajith Kumar’s Valimai and Pawan Kalyan’s Bheemla Nayak released this week and both are doing steady businesses adding a boost to the commercial success of the Southern film business after Pushpa: The Rise made a big start last year.
