Post Family Man, Samantha Akkineni’s Dubbed Hindi Version Of Telugu Film With Husband A big Hit



Samantha Ruth Prabhu

 Suddenly after  her stupendously  popular stint as  a rebel with a twisted cause  in  Raj-DK’s  smash hit  series  The  Family Man, Samantha  Akkineni’s  Tamil-Telugu films are  being sought out  and  released  in dubbed Hindi versions.

The  first of these is Majili, Samantha’s 2019 Telugu  hit co-starring her real-life husband  Nag Chaitanya. The  dubbed Hindi version of Majili released  after the  success of The   Family Man 2  on YouTube has already collected more than a  125 million  views.The  film tells  the story of a troubled marriage between  an out-of-control volatile  man and  woman who marries and calms him.

During a interview with  me  at the  time  of the film’s release in 20189 Nag Chaitanya  had  confessed it was tough being rude to his wife  on Majili. “I can’t dream of  raising my voice  with Sam. And here  I was screaming and shouting and  being a really awful husband. It required all my acting abilities to be so mean to  my wife.”

Majili came  nine years after he met Samantha Ruth Prabhu and fell in love with her on the sets of Gautam Menon’s Ye Maaye Chesave, Naga Chaitanya .Majili  in many ways reflected Naga’s own journey as actor and husband.

 Naga  explained, “When we met during Ye Maaye Chesave, we played young lovers discovering love.Then we did a couple of other films together, including the family film Manam (starring Naga, his father Nagarjuna and legendary grandfather Akinenni Nageswara Rao) where our relationship both on screen and in our personal life evolved. Inn Majili, we play a married couple going through the process of adjusting with one another.”

Naga Chaitanya admitted  during the 2019 interview that   it wasn’t easy being difficult with his wife on screen.”But then we had decided that whenever we work together, we would leave our personal relationship at home. Also, we were sure of one thing: Whatever we do together on screen has to take our combination ahead of our previous films together.”

“I don’t think I have played any character as dark and complex as the one in Majili,” Naga confessed. “He was a challenge to play because that’s not me. For me, there was always the dilemma between giving what the audience wants and doing roles that will take me further as an actor.I think I’ve resolved that dilemma in Majili. Earlier, I’d start off with the intention of doing what I felt was right. Then there would be some commercial tweaking. But not this time.”
