Samantha is one of the few female actors to bag enviable roles. Following her marriage to Tollywood star Naga Chaitanya, Samantha did not take a break and is continuing to act in movies that she had signed before the wedding.
Recently, we came to know about her role in the Vishal starrer Irumbu Thirai, which is in the making. According to sources in the tinsel town, her character in the film is called Dr Rathi Devi and she plays a psychologist with a PhD in the subject.
Directed by PS Mithran, who will be making his debut in the Tamil film industry, Irumbu Thirai is produced by Vishal under his banner Vishal Film Factory. This action thriller went on to the floors last year and has been in the making since then.
According to reports, Irumbu Thirai is gearing up for release on January 26 to cash in on the long Republic Day weekend.
While Vishal and Samantha play the lead pair in the film, it also has Arjun Sarja in a pivotal role. The technical crew of Irumbu Thirai comprises Yuvan Shankar Raja for scoring the music, George C Williams for cinematography and Ruben for editing.
It may be mentioned here that Arya was initially approached to play the baddie in Irumbu Thirai but he later opted out and the role went to Arjun Sarja.
Interestingly, the filmâ€™s director PS Mithran had revealed earlier that Vishal was keen on playing the villain as it had a good scope to show his performance. Eventually, he decided to take up the hero role.
With Samantha having a good fan base in the Telugu film industry, the makers of Irumbu Thirai intend to release its Telugu version along with the Tamil version. The Telugu version will be titled as Abhimanyudu.
