Samantha Akkineni is the Second Option for Anushka Shetty

Samantha Akkineni is the Second Option for Anushka Shetty

A few days ago, we have seen reports of legendary filmmaker Singeetam Srinivasarao making a comeback by helming a biopic on yesteryear Carnatic singer and women’s rights activist Bangalore Nagarathamma. People Media Factory Banner is going to bankroll this prestigious biopic set in the pre-independent India.

Reports are that the makers are keen on having Sweety Anushka on board for this project. Since Anushka has huge popularity across the South, the film will be released in all the major South Indian languages and Hindi. However, the actress is yet to sign the dotted line as she is apprehensive about Singeetham’s age.

The makers are contemplating approaching Samantha if Anushka does not agree. Anushka wrapped up the shooting of Nishabdham and is awaiting its release. She has not yet signed any other film. Samantha has signed a bilingual woman-centric film in the direction of Ashwin Saravanan.
