Samantha Ruth Prabhu has become a popular name ever since she won everyone’s heart with Pushpa’s Oo Antava Oo Oo Antava song. However, she is now all set to headline a Bollywood movie that will be produced by Taapsee Pannu. In a recent interview, the Shabaash Mithu actress confirmed the same and added that the official announcement regarding the project will be made soon.
"There is something that we are working together on. We will announce what it is very soon. But yes, we are working on something together. I will be producing it," Taapsee told Pinkvilla.
On being asked if she will be acting in the movie too, Taapsee said, "If there is a part in it that I can do, then I would, but she (Samantha Ruth Prabhu) is going to be leading it." "There is a different kind of excitement," the actress added.
The reports of Taapsee Pannu and Samantha Ruth Prabhu working together on a project first made headlines in December 2021 after the former launched her own production house 'Outsiders Films'. However, looks like fans will have to wait a little more to get the official announcement.
