Actress Samantha Akkineni is making best use of the virtual world during lockdown. She is taking acting lessons from the acclaimed English actress Helen Mirren to become a better actor.
Smantha has made a name for herself in Tamil and Telugu film industries. She is known for her performance in many films including Naan Ee, Neethane En Ponvasantham, Mersal, Rangasthalam and Super Deluxe.
She posted a photo of her laptop screen in which Helen Mirren can be seen given a speech. She jokingly said that she will delete the post if she doesn’t become a better actor.
Sharing the photo, she wrote, “When you literally had one productive hour in a 1000 and must show it off .. (I am a going to be a much better actor now just you wait and see … if not ………. I will just be deleting this post).”
Helen is one of the few performers who achieved the Triple Crown of Acting in the US by winning an Academy Award, Tony Award and Primetime Emmy Award for Best Actress.
Samantha Akkineni is spending quarantine with her husband Naga Chaitanya and their puppy, Hash Akkineni, at their sprawling house in Hyderabad. After the nationwide lockdown was imposed, the actress took a break from social media for a month.
Samantha is presently prepping for her upcoming film, which is a Tamil-Telugu bilingual. Directed by Ashwin Saravanan of Game Over, the film also has actor Prasanna playing an important role. An official confirmation regarding the rest of the cast and crew will be out soon.
