Samantha Ruth Prabhu reveals she was bitten by a rabbit on the sets of her upcoming film Shaakuntalam!
South actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film ‘Shaakuntalam.’ Last week, she was spotted attending the third trailer launch event of the film where she got uncomfortable with the harsh flashlights of the cameras as she was struggling to open her eyes while entering the venue. As ‘Shaakuntalam’ is releasing this Friday, the actress has revealed some hilarious and amusing insights from the sets of the movie.
As reported by Indian Express, Samantha was bitten by a rabbit on the sets. The actress made this shocking revelation by saying, “They are not so cute apparently.” The Oo Antava actress also mentioned she wore a 30-kg lehenga for a dance sequence and it was so heavy that it would take her away from the frame while dancing. Samantha shared, “So Neeta Lulla ma’am had made some of the most beautiful costumes for Shaakuntalam. There was this song where I had to wear a beautiful lehenga. She had kept dancing in mind and hence made some lehengas lighter and some heavier, like 30 kgs kinda heavy. But what was meant to be for the song, didn’t really happen, and I ended up wearing a 30 kg lehenga for the dance.”
On a related note, ‘Shaakuntalam’ has been directed by Guna Sekhar, and the film is based on Kavi Kalidasa's epic drama titled ‘Abhijnana Shaakuntalam.’ ALSO READ: Samantha Ruth Prabhu Struggles To Walk As Cameras Flashlights Hurt Her Eyes; Fans TROLL Paparazzi, Say ‘Shame On These People’-See VIDEO
