Samantha’s ill health creating problems

Samantha has been the toast of Tollywood this season and has a slew of big-ticket releases lined up for release. The actress may have earned the ‘lucky mascot’ tag in Tollywood, but her own luck hasn’t been great in the last month or so. Sam is down with an illness which has messed up her dates and caused her to back out of Mani Ratnam’s flick, “Kadal”. The shooting of Mahesh and Venkatesh-starrer “Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu” (“SVSC”) was also cancelled recently due to her ill state of health.
The actress’ hectic shooting schedules and horde of new projects down South has only made her condition worse. Director Nandini Reddy, who is working with her in an untitled flick, says, “Samantha has been unwell for the last one month or so. She seems to have aggravated the condition due to all the travelling that comes with moving from one set to the other. She has been shooting non-stop for the last eight months. Doctors have advised her to stay home and rest until she gets better.”
