After ‘Shaakuntalam’, Samantha Ruth Prabhu will next feature in the Indian leg of Prime Video’s action-thriller ‘Citadel’, helmed by Raj and DK. She is already filming for the web series along with actor Varun Dhawan.
Recently, in an interview with Miss Malini, the actress opened up about suffering a concussion on the sets of the show during the shoot of an action sequence. She recalled, “I had a concussion on sets. I forgot everyone’s name for a good two-three hours. To Raj, I was like, ‘Wait let me check my phone, what is his name?’ I haven’t had a concussion before, I didn’t know how it felt but I went back and shot after a few hours.”
Samantha also mentioned how Raj and DK are trying to raise the bar of action sequences of ‘Citadel’ (India), moving ahead from ‘The Family Man’, which were the duo’s previous runaway hit. Samantha was seen as Raji in the second season of the show, which also featured Manoj Bajpayee.
She said, “We are definitely pushing the bar from Raji from The Family Man and we can’t do the same action, people won’t enjoy it. It has to be a notch higher, I know it, they (Raj and DK) know it. We all are a bit crazy. We do not know when to tell each other to stop, we just keep going on. It’s a circus.”
Meanwhile, at the time she joined the cast of ‘Citadel’ (India), Samantha said in a statement, “The Citadel universe, the interconnected storylines between the productions across the globe, and most importantly, the script of the Indian instalment really excited me. I am thrilled to be a part of this brilliant universe conceptualised by the Russo Brothers’ AGBO. I am also looking forward to working with Varun for the first time on this project. He is someone who is full of life and cheers when you’re around him.”
The title of the Indian instalment of ‘Citadel’ is yet to be named. The Russo Brothers’ helmed ‘Citadel’, starring Priyanka Chopra and Richard Madden, will be streaming on Prime Video on April 28.
