Telugu actress Samantha Akkineni revealed that she has not been receiving film offers like she did before she married long-time boyfriend Naga Chaitanya
Actress Samantha Akkineni, who is seen busy promoting her upcoming movie Oh! Baby, recently said that she has not been receiving enough film offers after her wedding to long-time boyfriend Naga Chaitanya.
In a chat show hosted by popular film critic Rajeev Masand, Samantha said, "I am not getting as many films as I did before marriage. But I don't think it's because I am married, but I think filmmakers are confused about what to do with me now."
Samantha is awaiting the release of her upcoming film Oh! Baby, which is set to hit the screens July 5. It is a women-centric movie and she has been promoting the movie heavily on her social media pages.
The actress’s supposition may be true as Samantha is now the daughter-in-law of one of the esteemed families of the Telugu film industry. So, being seen in a glamorous role and in romantic scenes could be a problem. This could make filmmakers think twice about casting her and co-stars might be uncomfortable while shooting romantic scenes with a married Samantha.
Post her wedding, she has been seen in women-oriented movies like U-Turn and Oh! Baby.
Her latest movie, Oh! Baby is an official remake of the South Korean film Miss Granny. The film also stars Naga Shaurya, veteran actress Lakshmi among others. Helmed by BV Nandini Reddy and bankrolled by People's Media Factory, Oh Baby is set to release on July 5.
