Samantha Ruth Prabhu has moved on in life.She now wants a career in Bollywood. And all the best to her. But she needs to control her marketing team in Mumbai. They are going berserk planting stories about her “rapid progress” and “unique positioning” in Mumbai.
By planting speculative stories on Samantha’s cinema-signing spree in Mumbai,her team is putting the Telugu-Tamil actress into a hugely embarrassing situation.
Some time ago the internet was abuzz with stories that Samantha is “in advanced talks”(please note the cautionary step-back to leave room for changes in the leaked information) with director Aditya Dhar for The Immortal Asswatthma opposite Vicky Kaushal.
There is no truth to this. Not only is Dhar’s project on hold, his leading lady for the project is likely to his wife Yami Gautam.
Another hallucinatory news report wanted us to believe that producer Dinesh Vijan is “considering” Samantha for a film opposite Ayushmann Khurrana.
On further probing I was told that there is no such project at the moment.
But the icing on the imaginary cake is the report that Samantha “may” come together with Akshay Kumar in a film directed by Karan Johar.
Yeah, they are coming together. But only for an episode of Koffee With Karan.
A word of caution for Samantha: please ask your marketing team to calm down. These fake stories are not helping your career in Bollywood
