Samantha Ruth Prabhu grabbed the headlines a few days ago after she unarchived a few clicks of her ex-husband Naga Chaitanya on Instagram. It triggered speculations that she might be reuniting with Chay.
However, there has not been any official statement from the ex-couple. Nevertheless, there have been speculations that Sam has been roped in to play the female lead opposite Salman Khan in a Karan Johar-produced action film to be directed by Vishnuvardhan.
The speculations were very strong and it was almost confirmed that the movie would launch the Kushi actress in Bollywood the way Jawan launched Nayanthara. But it seems Samantha Ruth Prabhu is not in the mood to sign any new project and as of yet has no plans for her career.
During her recent interactive session on the web with fans, the Tollywood actor got candid on her career plans and working with Salman Khan.
She said, “My next project is to have not actually one. Not have a plan. Let’s see. Ah... I know I want to do.. be selective.. more selective. The things I’m going to work on, the things that can really push me out of my comfort zone. So, until I get a role like that I’m okay.”
It can be quite disappointing for her fans who were excited for Sam to make a debut in Bollywood with a big superstar like Salman Khan. But it is quite obvious that Samantha Ruth Prabhu is currently at a crossroads, facing a crisis in both her personal and professional life.

Her last few movies have not worked really well and hence she needs to be a bit choosy if she wants to bounce back. Importantly, she is fighting myositis which can take a toll on both mental and physical health.
Recently, she revealed how she is using filters for her face as the steroid treatment for her autoimmune diseases has resulted in skin pigmentation.
So, there is a lot that is going against Samantha Ruth Prabhu and hence it is understandable if she decides to take it easy for some time.
