Samantha Akkineni and all about her role! A protagonist or an antagonist?
Is Samantha playing a protagonist or an antagonist? In the trailer she is saying “I will kill them!” repeatedly, and we believe that’s not what a protagonist will say, right? Most probably Samantha will be portraying as a member of a terrorist group, who have something big planned in Chennai. In an interview, when asked how does it feel to play the antagonist, on this Samantha says that she didn’t really feel that she was playing a negative role. As Raj and DK had written the story in an unbiased way, not taking anyone’s side. Samantha says that she felt that it was a role that she had to play, instead of feeling that she will play a negative role in the series.
So basically, the craze, the intensity , the darkness that an antagonist portray as when doing a negative role, she didn’t feel like that. Intense? Yes, the role was intense as it was physically and emotionally exhausting. Although the role is quite demanding, she had fun while playing the character.
