Although Samantha debuted with Ye Maaya Chesave (2010), it was Mahesh Babu'sDookudu (2011) that catapulted her into top league. Later Mahesh Babu acted with Samantha in another blockbuster - Seethamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (2013). They have shown great chemistry. The hit pair has now become jodi for the third time.
Samantha has been confirmed as main heroine in director Srikanth Addala'sBrahmotsavam that stars Mahesh Babu as lead hero. Rakul Preet Singh was the first choice for this role. But she couldn't allot dates, so the makers approached Samantha. On the other hand, Samantha has no big film on her hand in Telugu at this moment, so signed on the dotted line immediately.
Praneetha Subhash is pairing up with Mahesh Babu in this film as second female lead. Third heroine is yet to be finalized. Regular shoot will commence from next month. PVP Cinema is producing the film.
