Samantha commences shooting for Yashoda

Samantha’s upcoming film with director duo Hari and Hareesh has been titled Yashoda. The film’s shooting commenced in Pune on December 6. Soon, the makers will announce the cast and crew.

Samantha’s Yashoda was supposed to go on floors in November. However, the shooting was postponed to December. Producer Sivalenka Krishna Prasad will be bankrolling this venture under Sridevi Movies.

In a statement, the producer said, “After making unique films like Aditya 369 with Nandamuri Balakrishna garu, Gentleman with Nani and Sammohanam with Sudheer Babu, we’re producing another unique attempt, a woman-oriented story with Samantha as the lead. As the story excited her a lot, she immediately okayed it. We’re introducing the Hari-Harish direction duo with this movie.”

Samantha will be seen next in director Gunasekhar’s Shaakuntalam and Vignesh Shivan’s Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal.
