It has been a while since popular director Gunasekhar came up with a new film. His last release was the 2015 period drama Rudhramadevi. He is now busy with the works of his upcoming project Shaakuntalam. From the past few days, it is being rumored that Samantha will play the female lead in it. Now, the makers have made an official announcement about her inclusion.
Gunasekhar took on social media to reveal about Samantha's inclusion in the movie. The team has also made a special motion teaser to reveal this announcement. Music director Mani Sharma's soulful background music remained the major highlight of this teaser.
Shaakuntalam forms the first time collaboration between Gunasekhar and Samantha. The shoot of this epic love saga will begin soon. The male lead is yet to be finalized. Apart from this movie, Samantha is also acting in a Tamil film titled Kathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal, which is being directed by Vignesh Shivn.
