Samantha Akkineni turns down a Bollywood offer

Samantha Akkineni is one of the leading actresses down the south, who is ruling the Telugu film industry for almost a decade. Samantha carried her form effectively even after getting married. This year, the star actress scored three back to back hits with Super Deluxe, Majili, and Oh Baby. Now, she is venturing into the web space with season two of the popular web series, The Family Man.

Meanwhile, Samantha was also offered a lead role chance in a Hindi film but the actress turned it down politely. If we get into the story, Kannada hit film U-Turn is now being remade into Hindi. Samantha has already remade it in Telugu and the film ran reasonably well at the box office. Impressed by her performance, even the Bollywood makers wanted to rope her in for the Hindi version.
But for some unknown reason, Samantha has turned down the offer. Apparently, the actress is happy with the reception she is getting in the south and has no plans to expand her market in the Hindi speaking belt. Thus, the Hindi makers have now apparently approached Taapsee Pannu to play the lead role in the film. We will get an official update once the actress signs the dotted lines.
