The much awaited trailer for Samantha Akkineni’s film Oh Baby is finally here.
The trailer starts with veteran actor Lakshmi going into a photo studio and walking out as a younger version of herself, played by Samantha. The plot seems to be filled with a number of fun antics as the elderly woman gains her youth back and is set on an adventure.
Numerous scenes between Samantha and the younger men who attempt to woo her, unaware that she is, in fact, an elderly woman provide comedy. The trailer hints of some emotional drama as well, as the lead character reflects upon the loss of her husband (played by Adivi Sesh in a cameo role) at a young age.
Samantha took to Twitter to announce the release of the trailer on Thursday morning.
“This one is dedicated to all the BABY s in our lives #OhBabyTrailer - https://youtu.be/D4x6CeRV5Bc Thank you @nandureddy4u for this Let me know your thoughts @IamNagashaurya | @SureshProdns | @peoplemediafcy | @gurufilms1 | @kross_pictures | @MickeyJMeyer | @RIP_apart,” tweeted the actor.
