For the romantic comedy Kushi, Vijay Deverakonda and Samantha Ruth Prabhu have teamed up. Although the film's initial schedule in Kashmir has already been completed, the rest of the filming was postponed due to the actor playing Yashoda's health issues. The group is now prepared to pick up production on the eagerly anticipated drama.
Samantha shared the good news on Twitter, "#Kushi will resume very soon .. my apologies to TheDeverakonda fans
During the same exchange, Samantha, the co-star of Arjun Reddy, was showered with compliments. “It was a beautiful experience to be a part of this film. I think I was in my college degree when I saw Samantha on the big screen for the first time and I was straight away in love with her. Now, to be able to do a movie with her and create some magic is a satisfying feeling, and she is a great actress. So, I’m eagerly waiting to bring Kushi to the world."
Kushi will reportedly tell a unique love story, if rumours are to be believed. The film, directed by Shiva Nirvana, stars Jayaram, Sachin Khedekar, Murali Sharma, Vennela Kishore, Lakshmi, Rohini, Ali, and Rahul Ramakrishna in key parts. The project, supported by Mythri Movie Makers, will have music by Hesham Abdul Wahab. The group also includes Prawin Pudi and Murali G, who play the roles of editor and cinematographer, respectively.
Samantha will play the major role in the upcoming mythological drama Shaakuntalam alongside Kushi. Based on the Kalidas play, the film, directed by Gunasekhar, will tell the epic love story of Princess Shakuntala and King Dushyanta. The drama, slated to hit theatres on February 17 of this year, was funded by Sri Venkateswara Creations. For those who are unaware, this is the first time in the Southern beauty's career that she would portray a mythological figure.
