Last year, Samantha Akkineni delivered Suspense thriller drama U Turn, the remake of Kannada film with the same name. Samantha Starrer was decent hit at the box office and now it is going to Bollywood. According to the latest buzz, the makers approached Samantha Akkineni to play the female lead in Hindi remake of U Turn but the actress rejected the offer. Now the buzz is that Taapsee Pannu has been approached to play the role though the producers were very keen on getting Samantha Akkineni to reprise the role in Hindi too. But she is said to have turned it down.
According to Samantha, she is happy in South movies and is not eager to expand her market on Bollywood. Interestingly, Samantha was earlier too approached to star in a few Hindi projects, but she turned down the offer.
