"Samantha has been working in films for the last 12 years and has an illustrious filmography behind her. So when she was seriously contemplating her Bollywood career after earning accolades and awards for her performance in Raj & DK’s espionage thriller series, she was looking for projects that would be exciting enough for her to take time off from her career down South. She has been offered dozens of films and web shows in the last 8–9 months, but only a few of them could titillate her even for consideration. Dinesh Vijan’s film is one of the most exciting scripts Samantha has come across, and there is no way she could have passed it on. It’s a perfect Bollywood launch for Samantha as she will be playing the central character in the film alongside Ayushmann Khurrana in a parallel lead," an industry source told us, adding that Maddock Films is planning to mount it on a big scale and release it sometime in late 2023. The film, we believe, will get into production once Samantha completes her current commitments and Ayushmann is done shooting for Raaj Shaandilya’s Dream Girl 2, which rolls next month in a North Indian city.
The Dinesh Vijan production aside, Samantha has signed one more Hindi film. The second one, sources say, is an ambitious mythological epic, scheduled to go on floors sometime in 2023. (More on this later.) The actress is also in talks with Taapsee Pannu for a female-centric thriller under her banner, Outsiders Films, and while she has shown her interest and is seriously thinking of taking up that project, nothing has materialised on paper as yet. It’s the same for her recently rumoured film with Akshay Kumar. Dharma Productions has reportedly approached her for an Akshay Kumar film, but it’s still in the discussion stage and nothing can be said definitively at this moment.
