With Samantha Ruth Prabhu as the lead, the pan-Indian Shaakuntalam portrayed the legendary tale of Shakuntala and King Dushyant. The movie only made about Rs 10 crore at the box office despite having a budget of over Rs 60 crore. Samantha has decided to stay away from such films in the future, according to professionals in the film industry. Social media trolls made jokes about Samantha’s loss of star status, and Chitti Babu, a producer, told an online news outlet that Samantha’s career was “finished.”
On April 17, Samantha posted a verse from the Bhagavad Gita on her social media accounts, reading, “Karma phala he tur bhuh, Ma te sangotsva karmani,” “Karmanye vadhika raste,” and “Ma phaleshu kadachana.” This response to those trying to dismiss her was deemed appropriate by her supporters and internet users.
One of the top actresses in Telugu cinema, Samantha, had a myositis diagnosis last year. The actor has built a strong career and is now recognized as a capable action actor. The Family Man 2 actress took some time off to concentrate on her health, but she is back and better than ever. She is collaborating on the Citadel online series with Vijay Deverakonda’s Kushi and Varun Dhawan.
In Citadel, she will be shown pulling off a lot of tricks. According to industry sources, Sam reportedly chose not to participate in some films for which she had previously signed up. This suggests that she may wish to concentrate on a small number of high-quality projects rather than spread herself too thin. Supporters believe that Samantha’s absence is just temporary because she has performed well in women-focused films.
