Samantha Akkineni, being one of the established actresses in the South, has also become a household name. Her memorable performances in the past years include Majili, U-turn, Rangasthalam, Oh Baby and Super Deluxe. Samantha is leaving no stone unturned to prove her versatility again and again.
However, fans, who have always wanted to see the actress constantly on big screens, might now feel disappointed with her latest statement. During her next film release Jaanu‘s event, Samantha hinted that she would soon stop acting in the films. The news is indeed heartbreaking. We can not call it retirement from films as many actresses have made their comeback later in their lives.
“As a married woman, it’s high time I should think about extending my family. Since an actress’ film career has always been short-lived than heroes, I may keep my family as my top priority and might act for 2 or 3 years more,” she said.
Within these next couple of years, Samantha also assured that she would be seen in memorable roles and entertain fans as much as possible. The news of Samantha putting a full stop to her full-swing career and planning about pregnancy has been a long-time rumor ever since Majili and now, the actress herself confirming it made netizens upset.
No matter what, we wish her good luck in all the endeavors, be it motherhood or the film career. Samantha’s next film, Jaanu, a remake of Tamil blockbuster 96, released on 7 February, opposite Sharwanand.
