Samantha bags a biggie

Luck is working overtime for Samantha, one has to say. The actress, who is at present part of Mani Ratnam’s Kadal, Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Neethane En Ponvasantham and S S Rajamouli’s Naan Ee, has bagged one more big project.

Titled Threyam, the Telugu-Tamil bilingual will bring together three generations of actors from the legendary Akkineni family of Tollywood. Director Vikram Kumar of Alai and Yavarum Nalam fame is directing the film, which will have Nageswara Rao, Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya in lead roles.

Says the director, ‘Yes, we are with the idea of having Samantha on board. But nothing could be confirmed at this point of time as we are planning to start the film’s shooting only by the end of 2012.’
