Samantha not turning Granny
  Couple of weeks back rumours spread that Samantha is readying for sensation on silver screen playing the role of  a 70 year old granny in the remake of Korean film Miss Granny. The film revolves about a woman in her 70s who magically finds herself in the body of her 20-year-old self.

Nandini Reddy is directing the film and Rao Ramesh would be seen as Samantha's son. Not only fans but also movie lovers got excited and started waiting eagerly for the first look of Samantha as a granny.

However now reports are coming that Samantha is not turning granny and buzz is Samantha will be seen as only 20 year old girl while senior actress Lakshmi will be playing the role of a granny.

A source says “Even in the original film, the two roles have been played by different actresses, and the film’s director Nandini Reddy was keen to stay true to it and not dilute its essence,”

Sources say the makers planned to use prosthetics for Samantha to turn her as a old woman but they do not want to take chances as it takes lot of time. Source continued saying “Moreover, Nandini Reddy believes that an actress ends up focusing more on the prosthetics and makeup, if used, than on the character. Hence, in the largest interest of the project, the filmmakers rejected the use of prosthetics.”

The film stars Naga Shourya and already shooting is progressing in a brisk manner.
