Actor Samantha recently conducted an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session with her fans on Twitter where she answered a volley of questions that were thrown at her. When a follower asked her which hero according to her had the best comic timing, she replied that it was undoubtedly Sivakarthikeyan.
Interestingly, Samantha shares screen space with Siva in the upcoming film Seema Raja.
Seema Raja, directed by Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam and Rajini Murugan fame Ponram, is an action comedy drama that has Sivakarthikeyan and Samantha Akkineni playing the lead pair. The highlight of Samantha's character will reportedly be action sequences.
Incidentally, the director’s two earlier releases starred Siva in the lead role. In Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam, Siva was paired opposite Sri Divya and in Rajiini Murugan it was with Keerthy Suresh. This is the first time that Sivakarthikeyan and Samantha are sharing screen space.
Scheduled for release on September 13 this year, Seema Raja stars Siva in the title role with Samantha as his lady love. The star cast also features Napoleon, Simran, Soori, Yogi Babu, Manobala, Sathish, and Abubakkar.
The film is bankrolled by RD Raja under his banner 24 AM Studios. The technical crew of this film includes D Imman as the music composer, Balasubramaniem as the cinematographer and Vivek Harshan as the editor.
There have been reports of Seema Raja being a period flick but the film’s director had denied it adding that it would be on the lines of his previous ventures. Well, it is now certain that Seema Raja will be a comedy entertainer, which happens to be Siva and Ponram’s forte. The shooting of this film is halfway through with the team busy proceeding with the next schedule.
Samantha also awaits the release of Mahanati, the biopic on legendary southern actress Savitri. In Tamil, she has Vishal’s Irumbuthirai. Samantha recently began shooting for the Telugu and Tamil remake of U-Turn, in which she plays an investigative journalist.
