Shaakuntalam first single

The trailer of Shaakuntalam, the upcoming film starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu in the lead role, was released by the makers recently. While the film is set to hit the theatres on February 17, the first single from the film will be out tomorrow. 

Taking to her Instagram, Samantha shared that the musical journey of Shaakuntalam will begin with the release of the first single titled Mallika on January 18. The music for the film is composed by Mani Sharma. While the cinematography is handled by Sekhar V Joseph, Shaakuntalam’s editing is done by Prawin Pudi.

Helmed by Gunasekhar, the historic period drama is based on the play Shaakuntalam written by 4th-century Sanskrit poet Kalidas. While Samantha will play Shakuntala, the film features Dev Mohan playing the king of the Puru Dynasty, Dushyanta. Others who are part of the cast include Mohan Babu, Gautami, Aditi Balan, Prakash Raj, Madhoo, and Ananya Nagalla, who will appear in pivotal roles.

Apart from the original Telugu version, Shaakuntalam will also be simultaneously dubbed into Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, and Hindi. While the film was initially supposed to have been released in November 2022, the makers postponed citing 3D effects.
