Samantha Learns A Martial Art Form For Her Next!!

Check out the video she uploaded on Instagram!

It’s mid-May and Samantha Akkineni already has three films to her credit, all of them being huge hits! The actress has now revealed what we can expect from her next film. A village drama, the film stars Sivakarthikeyan and Samantha, directed by Ponram. But what really stands out is the fact that Samantha is all set to kick butts in this film! She has learnt Silambam, a weapon-based martial art of India, more specifically in the state of Tamil Nadu, where it originated around 1000 BC.

Titled Seema Raja, the actress revealed to Deccan Chronicle about her role in the film.

“I am playing a typical village girl attired in ‘paavadai dhaavani’ and it’s a fun-filled entertainer and full-fledged commercial Siva-Ponram kind of films. I learnt Silambam for this film and I have swirled the stick for some of the action sequences,” she said.

Silambam has featured in other Tamil films such as Pattikada Pattanama, Periya Idathu Penn, Thevar Magan, RickshawkaranMaattukara Velan, Thanikattu Raja, and various other films.

After Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam and Rajini Murugan, this film marks the third collaboration between Ponram and Sivakarthikeyan. The shooting began last year with major portions canned in Thenkasi. The film, said to be a rural entertainer, also stars Simran Bagga and comedian Soori. Cinematographer Balasubramaniem will crank the camera, with composer D Imman on board for music. The film is slated for a summer release this year.

Samantha has, in the past, shared images and videos of her gearing up for the film.
