One of the most popular names in South India, actress Samantha Akkineni has been part of several blockbusters and has starred alongside some of the biggest superstars over the course of her highly successful career. Samantha, who was last seen in Tamil cinema in the critically-acclaimed, Super Deluxe, earlier this year, has since gone on to star in Telugu ventures such as Majili opposite her husband and actor Naga Chaitanya, including a cameo in Nagarjuna’s rom-com, Manmadhudu 2, and the fantasy comedy film, Oh!
