Samantha Akkineni says I’m married..want a family
Samantha Akkineni is currently busy in the promotional activities of her upcoming film Jaanu. This is the first time, Samantha is sharing the screen space with the young actor Sharwanand.
As it is remake of Tamil superhit movie 96 starring Trisha and Vijay Sethupathi, the expectations are very high on it. Recently during the media interaction, Samantha hinted about her retirement. Samantha, the wife of Naga Chaitanya is getting ready to settle as housewife. She is also planning for motherhood.
Jaanu actress Samantha Akkineni said, “ I might only act for the next two, three years. Now I am married and I need to think about my family. Everyone knows that the heroine’s career is quite short in the film industry. That’s why I may act for two, three years more.”
In past, Samantha Akkineni has said, “Whenever I decide to have a baby and I become a mother, I will take a break from everything else, including acting. My baby will be the world to me.”
In the South Indian film industry, Samantha Akkineni is quite a path breaker in the way she continues to stay in-demand with a bunch of movies even after marriage. Her thoughts on motherhood and how she would prioritize her life speaks volumes of her maturity and clarity.
Samantha Akkineni said she treats every film as her first and takes it on as a challenge. “Initially, I worked for name and did not consider the money. I focussed on how I could connect to the audience through my roles, and the money came automatically,” she says.
“It’s almost 10 years since I came into the industry and I may work for two more years, but I should be remembered through my characters,” said Samantha. Asked to elaborate on her plans to ‘retire’, she said “it’s not about retirement; I am married, I want a family and it will happen.” She went on to add that “an actress’ career span is not long, so even after my retirement, people should remember me, that’s why I am giving my 100 per cent to all my roles.”
Talking of her husband Chaitanya, Samantha Akkineni says, “We have known each other over the last ten years, right from my first film, and we are more like friends. He is very supportive in all aspects. I think that friends always want the best for each other.”
On Family Man Season 2, the web series she has just completed, she says “You can see a new Samantha in it. I worked hard and I struggled a lot as I had to train for the action scenes. I didn’t use a body double. You can see me doing action scenes for the first time and also playing a negative role.”
