Samantha who donned the role of a investigative reporter Madhuravani in the the movie Mahanati, will once again play a journalist in the Telugu-Tamil bilingual remake of the Kannada film U-Turn.
The film is a thriller about mysterious deaths of motorists who take a u-turn on a flyover of a metro city. The film is directed by Pawan Kumar, who makes his debut in Telugu and Tamil with this movie. Produced by Srinivasa Silver Screen, the yet-to-be-titled film also features Narain and Bhumika Chawla in pivotal roles.
Besides U-Turn, Samantha's other projects include Super Deluxe with Vijay Sethupathi and Seema Raja with Sivakarthikeyan. The actress has had a good run at the box office this year with successful releases in Tamil and Telugu. Rangasthalam and Mahanati (Nadigaiyar Thilagam in Tamil) were huge hits at the box office. Her Tamil movie with Vishal, Irumbuthirai was a blockbuster and its Telugu dubbed version Abhimanyudu also opened to positive reviews.
