|Samantha with Akkineni family in Vikram's 'Thrayam'|
The three generations of Akkineni family are brought together by Yaavarum Nalam (13 B iin Hndi) fame director Vikram Kumar.
This much-hyped film titled Thrayam, will have veteran actor Nageswar Rao, his son Nagarjuna, and his grandson Naga Chaitanya.
The director who is finishing the casting is said to have approached actress Samantha to be part of the film, to play one of the leads.
Vikram said, “The film will go on floors in December, and we are looking at an August release. Samantha will be playing one of the leads. We are still finalizing the other heroine for this film.”
Samantha’s spokesperson however says, “Though she hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet, she likes the story. Her character is quite interesting, and she will, in all probability, be doing this film.”
Vikram had earlier said, “Thrayam is likely to be made as a Tamil-Telugu bilingual, and all the characters will have equal screen time. I’m glad I could get the Akkinenis to act together.”
Samantha must be on a high, since she seems to be getting the best of projects in Tamil & Telugu and must be surely on Cloud Nine!
