South Indian Actress Samantha takes online classes from Helen Mirren
Samantha Akkineni is spending quarantine with her husband Naga Chaitanya and their puppy, Hash Akkineni, at their sprawling house in Hyderabad. After the nationwide lockdown was imposed, the actress took a break from social media for a month.
On May 6, she took to Instagram to reveal that she’s finally making her lockdown productive. She posted a photo of her laptop screen in which Helen Mirren can be seen giving a speech. She jokingly said she will delete the post if she doesn’t become a better actor.
Sharing the photo she wrote, “when you literally had one productive hour in a 1000 and must show it off…(I am a going to be a much better actor now just wait and see…..if not……..I will just be deleting this post).”
For the uninitiated, Helen Mirren is one of the most celebrated British actresses. She is the recipient of Academy, British Academy Film Awards, and BAFTA Awards among others.
Samantha is presently prepping for her upcoming film, which is a Tamil-Telugu bilingual. Directed by Ashwin Saravanan of Game Over, the film also has actor Prasanna playing an important role. An official confirmation regarding the rest of the cast and crew will be out soon.
She is also in talks to play the lead role in Singeetam Srinivas Roa’s biopic on Bangalore-based singer Nagarathnamma. Meanwhile, there are reports that Samantha has been approached to be a part of the Telugu remake of Kannada hit film.
