Samantha Ruth Prabhu had considered this film a fairy tale. “This film will stay with me for the rest of my life. As a little girl I believed in fairy tales… not much has changed. I still do…. and @gunasekhar1 sir my fairy godfather making my dream a reality. When he narrated this film to me I was immediately transported to a most beautiful world… the world of Shaakuntalam… a world like no other,” wrote Samantha.
Furthermore, the filmmakers recently released the teaser showing Samantha in an action-packed avatar. The film’s yet to get a release date.
Concurrently, the speculations were rife that she had gone there to treat a rare skin condition, however, her manager rubbished such speculations.
