Samantha Ruth Prabhu aka Samantha Akkineni is one of the most popular actresses in Telugu as well as Tamil. Coming from a middle-class family, Samantha struggled a lot until the movie 'Ye Maya Chesave". After becoming an instant star, Samantha had to do some namesake-heroine roles.
But, once Samantha crossed that phase of life, she seems to be picky about her roles in the movies. Being a star heroine, she has too many options to do a glamorous role and settle to the normal roles demanding high remunerations as the heroines of her stature normally do. But, Samantha is something special and different.
The recent movies Samantha is a part of, reveal that she is trying to act in content-driven movies rather than commercially strong movies with no proper content. Theri, Raju Gari Gadhi, Mersal, etc were some of the movies in which her small appearance has more significance.
Her upcoming movies are all quite different and offbeat ones. Her village-girl avatar in Rangasthalam proves she is not searching for anything routine but wants to set her own benchmark in the movies. Mahanati, Irumbu Tirai, Super Deluxe are her upcoming movies and Samantha seems to have wrapped up most of them. Samantha is not only growing as a star, but also setting a higher bar for the upcoming heroines. Wow, Girl!!
