The actress even called the movie one of her favourite films and asked her fans to stream the movie online. The picture only proved why Samantha was the apt actor to play the role of the young “Swathi” in the film.
The Telugu movie was a remake of the South Korean film Miss Granny. The movie was dubbed and released in Tamil as well.
