Samantha Akkineni is the highest-paid Telugu actress currently and she is quite selective. The actress thought twice before signing her first-ever web series "The Family Man 2". Samantha played the role of Raji, a well-trained Tamil commander who sketches the assassination plan of the Prime Minister. She played a negative role which is bold. The actress waited for the response and she is thrilled after she received appreciations from all over the country. Samantha also performed some daredevil stunts for the role and her performance is widely appreciated.
Samantha now became a star in all the languages and she is now rushed with several offers. Samantha is keen to take up web based projects. Amazon Prime approached Samantha for one more project and the actress is currently holding talks. She is also approached for a web series for Netflix. Samantha is not in a hurry but she is quite interested to pick up some challenging roles like Raji in the coming future. The actress is expected to resume the shoot of Shaakuntalam from next month. Gunasekhar is the director of this periodic drama that will have a pan-Indian release next year in all the languages. Gunasekhar and Dil Raju are jointly producing Shaakuntalam.
