Late last year, movie buffs got to see her in the Nani starrer MCA, which did well at the box office. She will soon be appearing on the silver screens with the Naga Chaitanya starrer Savyasachi, which is getting ready for release on June 10th this year. Besides this, she has inked a deal to star in the U Turn remake, which will have Samantha Akkineni playing the lead role.

The Kannada film U Turn was directed by Pawan Kumar and he is wielding the megaphone for the remake as well. The shooting of this film commenced a couple of months ago and is progressing at a breakneck speed.

On this film, Samantha not only shared the video of the first day on the sets but also tweeted, “All the inspiration I need to be better. Thank you. U-Turn begins.”

U Turn, a horror thriller, was directed by Pawan Kumar and he had also produced the venture under his banner Pawan Kumar Studios. The original version had Shraddha Srinath, Radhika Chetan, Dileep Raj and Roger Narayan in the star cast.
