Yashoda- Women-centric film

Samantha is one such actress in the South, who has managed to entertain the audience just with a good story and great performance as we have seen with her 2019 film Oh Baby. Now, yet again, she is back with a women-centric film Yashoda and the expectations are sky-high. The actress opened up about female-driven scripts and said they have become the new flavour. She added, "I have been in this industry for 12 years now and I can see that female-driven scripts have become the new flavour and women are rising with the occasion. In hero films, you only get a certain type of role to play but in women-driven movies, it is more challenging to work for interesting roles."


Never before explored genre/topic- Surrogacy

Samantha is playing the role of surrogate. Yashoda happens to be one of the surrogate mothers, who joins a facility, which takes care of several other surrogate mothers, who are hired to birth the children of influential people.

On some days, getting up from bed is difficult. And on some days, I want to fight. Slowly, the days I want to fight are becoming more. It's been three months now. I want to clarify that I am not dying anytime soon. I saw many articles that I have a life-threatening condition. No, I don't. It's an autoimmune condition. It's draining and tiring. I've always been a fighter and I will fight."
