In a first, Samantha gets huge cut-out erected for Oh Baby

The Telugu film is set for release on July 5

Published: 04th July 2019

With Samantha Akkineni's Oh Baby, a remake of South Korean film Miss Granny, poised for a worldwide release tomorrow, a picture of a huge cutout of Samantha, almost three to four storeys high, is going viral on the internet.

These huge cutouts are generally erected for films, which have a big star with a huge fan following, who are traditionally the male actors in our cinemas. Samantha, now, getting a huge cut-out for Oh Baby is being viewed as an instance of breaking stereotypes.

While it might be a proud moment for her fans, it is also imperative to remember that over the years, a number of mishaps have occurred due to these cut-outs. Fans were injured while climbing atop a huge Ajith cut-out in Villupuram, which was erected to mark the release of Viswasam.

Though Samantha hasn't responded to this gesture, it would do a world of good for such fans if their idols take time out to dissuade them from doing such activities, which are not just expensive, but dangerous too. Nevertheless, this has provided the right kind of buzz for the Nandini Reddy-directorial, which also features Naga Shaurya, Rajendra Prasad, Rao Ramesh and Pragati in supporting roles.

The comedy-drama revolves around a 70-year-old woman, played by Lakshmi, who finds herself in the body of her 20-year-old self, essayed by Samantha Akkineni, after clicking a picture in a mysterious studio. This is the first time that Samantha has joined hands with the veteran actor.

Adivi Sesh, last seen in Goodachari is playing a crucial cameo in the film, which has music by Mickey J Meyer.
