Samantha Akkineni recently debuted in web entertainment with The Family Man 2 which is streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The senior actress is said to be in talks with Netflix for a A-lister web series now.
Netflix is planning to bankroll a trilingual web series featuring Samantha and they have already initiated talks with the actress. Details regarding the director of the project are not disclosed yet but it is said that Samantha likes the premise of the series. She is yet to sign the dotted line though.
Netflix has been hoping to expand its viewer base down South and there is no better way to achieve it than by roping in a widely famous actress like Samantha for what promises to be an exciting series. The OTT giant plans to make the series in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.
If Samantha gives her nod to the project, Netflix will be taking it onto the floors by the end of this year. More details will be out once the series is officially announced by Netflix, which in all fairness is a long way from now.
