Visibly appearing de-glammed, Samantha will play the role of an investigative journalist who reports on the series of deaths of motorists at a particular flyover. Directed by Pawan Kalyan, the film was initially made in Kannada starring Shraddha Srinath in 2016. The film went on to be widely appreciated, prompting the film to be remade in the other two South Indian languages.
Recently, when the stills did the round, Twitter users asked her who the hero is, to which she said, “The script!”
