Let’s kick off 2018 with a great month, shall we? This January, Raaga is featuring the ever charming actress, Samantha Ruth Akkineni, as our Artist Of The Month.
Born on 28 April, and turning 31 this year, Samantha’s acting career first began with Gautham Menon’s Ye Maaya Chesave in 2010, in which she played the lead role. Since then, she has gone on to take the lead in 32 films, and established an acting and modelling career in both the Telugu and Tamil showbiz industries.
Till date, Samantha has picked up 22 awards, and 23 award nominations. She’s also the second actress ever to win both the Filmfare Award for Best Tamil Actress and the Filmfare Award for Best Telugu Actress in the same year—for her performances in Neethaana En Ponvasantham (2012), and Eega (2012).
Her other notable films are Dookudu (2011), Yeto Vellipoyindhi Manasu (2012), the dramas Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (2012) and Attarintiki Daredi (2013), as well as Tamil films, Kaththi (2014), Theri (2016), and 24 (2016).
On 6 October, she tied the knot to Telugu actor Naga Chaitanya, but quickly jumped right back in to work. She’s been busy filming Rangasthalam (Telugu), Super Deluxe (Tamil), and Irumbu Thirai (Tamil), which trailer you can watch here:
You’ll be seeing her in more movies too, as she has also signed on to 3 more movies that will be released this year: Mahanati (Telugu), Nadihaiyar Thilagam (Tamil), and Mahanati (Malayalam).
