As southern beauty, Samantha Akkineni turned 33 on Tuesday, wishes and greetings poured from across the film fraternity. The Majili actor’s journey into the cinema world began during her college days when she got some modelling projects. Samantha soon received multiple offers for film roles, making her debut with Gautham Menon’s 2010 romance Ye Maaya Chesave.
Samantha began dating actor Naga Chaitanya, son of popular actor Nagarjuna Akkineni, in 2010. The pair got engaged in Hyderabad in January 2017. Their traditional Hindu marriage took place in Goa on 6 October, 2017, followed by a Christian wedding on the next day.
On the actress’ 33rd birthday, here’s a look at some of her most adorable moments from Instagram.
Samantha was one of the few actresses who got a chance to recreate famous artist Raja Ravi Varma’s work for NAAM charitable trust. In the photo by G Venkat Ram, she looked breathtakingly beautiful, resembling the original frame.
Rakul Preet Singh was among the first celebs to send birthday greetings with a sweet message on her Twitter. “Happppy bdayyyyy gorgeous.
The birthday celebrations of Samantha was a low-key affair as she cut the cake with her hubby at home due to the lockdown. Sharing couple of pictures on Instagram, Sam thanked her fans and well wishers for all greetings. She also shared a video of Chay making a birthday cake for her on social media.
Samantha shared adorable pictures and videos from the time Naga Chaitanya took to kitchen duties. We can see the couple’s adorable pet dog Hash also looking forward to what was happening in the kitchen and accompanied Naga Chaitanya throughout the cake-baking process.
On the work front, Samantha will feature in Amazon Prime Video series The Family Man 2. The web series will mark her debut in the digital space as well in the Hindi film industry.
The release date of The Family Man 2, which went on floors in November 2019, is yet to be announced. Samantha, post lockdown, is also set to star in a female-centric bilingual film directed by Ashwin Saravanan and co-starring Prashanth.
