Samantha after her marriage with Naga Chaitanya entered Nag’s house as Akkineni family’s daughter-in-law. All the films which Samantha was doing at the time of marriage were released after marriage and became successful. ‘Rangasthalam’ in which she acted with Ram Charan turned to be a block-buster. While enjoying the success of this movie, Samantha made history in the role of Madhuravani in ‘Mahanati’. Three days later, she scored another hit, this time in Kollywood with ‘Irumbu Thirai’. About 20 days after ‘Mahanati’ became a hit, Telugu movie ‘Abhimanyudu’ was released on June 1 and it also tasted success. Samantha scored hit by working with Vishal in ‘Abhimanyudu’.
Considering Samantha’s success track, she is not just ready to compete with her father-in-law but she also scored hits in this competition. Samantha is very close to father-in-law Nagarjuna and this is reflected from their chatting on social media. Father-in-law and daughter-in-law are competing with their movies. Nagarjuna entered the competition with movie ‘Officer’ while Samantha too entered the fray by acting with Vishal in ‘Abhimanyudu’. In this interesting competition, daughter-in-law Samantha got the upper hand. Nagarjuna’s ‘Officer’ did not get the pass marks either from critics or audience. But Samantha’s ‘Abhimanyudu’ secured full marks from critics. Samantha, who played a psychiatrist in ‘Abhimanyudu’ has scored another super hit after the marriage. By continuing as the successful heroine in both Tollywood and Kollywood, Samantha has proved wrong those who say that heroines have no career after marriage. The daughter-in-law has thus got an upper hand over father-in-law.
