Samantha Ruth Prabhu played the lead role in the movie Shaakunthalam, which is a mythological drama. Shaakunthalam is based on Kalidas’s play Abhignana Shaakunthalam, a part of the epic Mahabharata. Malayalam actor Dev Mohan played the important role of King Dushyantha.
The romance between the Shaakunthala and Dushyantha is what drives the story forward and is one of the key aspects of the start of Mahabharata. Allu Arjun’s daughter Allu Arha will be seen as Prince Bharatha in the movie.
Shaakunthalam is based highly on VFX and the movie is made on a mammoth budget. Gunasekhar is the director of the movie and Dil Raju made his investment in the film as well. Shaakunthalam was delayed for many months as the team decided to release it in 3D format.
The film which carries decent expectations is finally releasing today. We will come up with a review of the film shortly. Stay tuned.
