In a recent, Samantha opened up about misusing food and how she has changed her perspective towards the same. While in the caption she wrote,”Growing your own food is like printing your own money – Ron Finley. After taking food for granted all my life, this pandemic lockdown taught me a new way of eating and a new hobby. I learnt to grow my own food in my own home! A shaking experience but I am glad this happened.”
In her video she said, “We have really taken food for granted and never valued food. We simply order on our mobile phones and the food eaches us. When this pandemic started, Chay and I rushed to the supermarket and listed out the groceries and what we should buy. We asked ourselves how many days we can manage with the groceries and vegetables. At the end of the day, it all boiled down to our health and the food we eat. When you don’t see a clear path, planting is a healing process.”
What a lovely message to pass on during such trying times. In fact, this is easily one of the healthiest hobbies to develop at home.
On the professional front, Samantha has two Tamil films in the pipeline. One is titled Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal starring Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara and directed by Vignesh Shivan. She then has an untitled next with actor Prasanna director by Ashwin Saravanan of Game Over fame. Apart from that, Samantha will make her OTT and her Bollywood debut with the second season of the web series The Family Man alongside actor Manoj Bajpayee and Priyamani in the lead.
Meanwhile Naga Chaitanya has Love Story starring Sai Pallavi in the lead and directed by Sekhar Kammula.
