Samantha is winning appreciation for her innocent yet feisty performance as the village belle Rama Lakshmi in her latest hit ‘Rangasthalam’. The film was directed by Sukumar and he had said in several interviews that he was quite impressed with Samantha’s performance and dedication.
Now, it looks like Sam is banking on the goodwill she shares with Sukumar. A close source has informed us that Samantha is requesting Sukumar to do a film with Akhil. Sam is said to be determined to see her doting brother-in-law rocking Tollywood and has taken his responsibility.
Sam had closely watched how Sukumar had brought the best out of Ram Charan on Rangasthalam’s sets. She feels that a film with Sukumar in the early stages of Akhil’s career will help the Akkineni scion a great deal. Sukumar is yet to oblige the Akkineni daughter-in-law’s request.
Meanwhile, Akhil tried his luck with two top directors VV Vinayak and Vikram Kumar for his first two movies. After holding talks with a few star directors, he has finally zeroed in on young filmmaker Venky Atluri for this third project.
