Star heroine Samantha entered the industry merely as a glamor doll. But as the time passed by, she molded herself and became one of the best actresses in the southern film industries. This year, she scored four blockbusters with Theri, 24, A.Aa and Janatha Garage.
If the latest buzz is anything to go by, Samantha has been roped in as the lead actress in the biopic of legendary actress Savithri. This film will be directed by Nag Ashwin of Yevade Subramanyam fame. It has been titled as Mahanati. It will be produced by Ashwini Dutt. Earlier, makers had considered Vidya Balan and Nitya Menen for the role but it seems that they have finally okayed Samantha. An official confirmation regarding this title is yet to be made.
