Samantha Akkineni knows audience pulse very well than others. One can make this assumption as 80% of her films have been hits or blockbusters, in her career and she took it to unprecedented 95%, in recent years.
Such actress can clearly understand what people want or what a story is trying to say. The actress left a mark on audiences so much that she doesn't want to leave it out just like that and move on to doing any random character roles.
Oh Baby proved that her marriage did not reduce public interest in watching her on screen. But her equation on screen with Naga Chaitanya is completely different.
As in real-life, they can only be seen as positive couple on screen too. She seems to have understood that. She opted out of a film by RX100 director, Ajay Bhupathy just because if Chaitanya and her appear in such dark shades, people won't accept.
Hence, when Chay opted out of the project, she showed interest to explore it, say reports. Sharwanand might work as the lead in the movie and title, could be Maha Samudram.
We have to wait for official confirmation from the director to elevate these details from mere gossip to news. Until then, you heard it from someone but not us!
