In a list that came out in July 2022, Samantha was described as India’s most popular female star. Samantha topped this list leaving behind actresses like Nayantara and Deepika Padukone. Now it seems that Samantha is going to make her All India popularity stronger with her upcoming films.

A few days ago the teaser of his next film ‘Yashoda’ came out, which looks to be a great thriller and is about to release pan-India. Now the motion poster of Samantha’s new film ‘Shakuntalam’ has come and its release date has also been announced along with the poster. ‘Shakuntalam’ will also be a pan India film and will release in Hindi as well as Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil and Kannada.


Samantha is playing the role of Shakuntala in this story based on Kalidas’s classic creation. Along with him, actor Dev Mohan, who has been seen mostly in Malayalam cinema, will be seen in the role of Raja Dushyant. From the poster, Shakuntalam looks like an epic love story and has the potential to be a great period drama. Apart from these two, strong actors like Prakash Raj, Kabir Bedi and Mohan Babu are also going to be in the film.

Allu Arjun’s daughter will debut
There is another strong reason for Allu Arjun fans to watch Shakuntalam. Allu Arjun’s daughter Allu Arha is going to make her acting debut with ‘Shakuntalam’. She will be seen playing the role of Rajkumar Bharat in the film. Before Arha, there were also reports of Jr NTR’s son Abhay Ram or Aloo Arjun’s son Aloo Ayaan being in the film. But last year, Allu Arjun’s social media post confirmed that Rajkumar is not going to be his son, but his daughter in the role of Bharat.

Allu wrote in the post, ‘It is a proud moment for the Allu family to announce that their fourth generation, Allu Arha will make their debut with the movie ‘Shakuntalam’. Thanking the film’s director Gunasekhar and producer Neelima Guna, Allu wrote, ‘Thank you for giving this beautiful film to my daughter as a debut.’

Bollywood movies will clash
With the motion poster, the makers announced that ‘Shakuntalam’ will release on November 4. Two Bollywood films will also be released on the same day. Where Katrina Kaif, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter starrer ‘Phone Bhoot’ is to be released on November 4. At the same time, Arjun Kapoor starrer Naseeruddin Shah and Tabu’s film ‘Kutte’ is also to be released on this day. Hindi viewers also follow Samantha tremendously. In such a situation, the clash of ‘Shakuntalam’ with these films will be worth watching.
