Not so long ago, Samantha received applauds for her fine performance in a negative role in Amazon Prime Video's flagship web series, The Family Man Season 2. The actress excelled in the role of Raji, a fiery LTTE fighter. Samantha underwent a noticeable transformation for her role in the film. She appeared several shades darker in the series in order to look more authentic as a conventional terror monger. Samantha's transformation and her performance in the series was widely appreciated by one and all. Now, she is flooded with several offers from OTT giants like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

Cut to now, Naga Chaitanya is set to take a similar path. He too is set to venture into the web space with his maiden web series that will be directed by Vikram K Kumar. Speaking about the series, "I play the antagonist in the series and it has a very peculiar storyline. I was thrilled after listening to the script penned by Vikram. I am excited about this project. I don't think that a script such as this one caters to theatrical audience. This is the luxury OTT provides us with. We can experiment around and play characters that we cant play in theatrical films," Chaitanya recently said. We had reported the same earlier.

Apparently, Naga Chaitanya and Vikram K Kumar are collaborating for a horror drama series and Chaitanya will be playing the antagonist in the same. The series will also touch supernatural elements and it will have a peculiar storyline. The filming will commence very soon and more details about the same will be out shortly. Amazon Prime Video will be bankrolling the series and it will later be available for streaming on the same platform.

Interestingly, enough, Samantha marked her entry into the web space by playing the antagonist role in The Family Man. Now, Chaitanya too is entering the web entertainment industry by playing the antagonist in the Amazon Prime web series. This really is a strange coincidence, one must say. Samantha scored a blockbuster with her maiden web series. We need to wait and see if Chaitanya cane emulate a similar feat now.
