From Ye Maaya Chesave to Janatha Garage, Samantha Ruth Prabhu has captured our hearts and reigned the Tollywood industry for 7 years now. As she turns another year older, her talent and looks both seems to be maturing majestically like a good wine. She sure does intoxicate us regularly – be it on screen or off screen. Sadly though, she is off limits owning to her pending marriage with another Tollywood star, Naga Chaitanya Akkineni.
Nevertheless, we can always look back on some of her amazing roles portrayed in cinemas through these years and dream wistfully about them. So today on the birthday of this bubbly actress, let’s take a look at the best performances of the popular gal.
- Ye Maaya Chesave – Jessie
Right from the bat she had our hearts and eyes. We suppose even it is because of this film that Chay fell in love with her as did we too. The love story of Jessie and Karthik was to be told and retold for many years to come.
- Dookudu – Prashanthi
Upping the glamour quotient in a mass film, Samantha bagged a stupendous offer with Mahesh Babu, her first with the superstar. Her mind-blowing steps in ‘Dhadak Dhadak’ as Prashanthi made us shake a leg on the tune too.
- Eega – Bindu
An out-of-the-box movie that had some amazing performances by the cast and by Samantha aka Bindu. Her character of a confident girl on a journey to avenge her boyfriend’s murder formed a fabulous film.
- Yeto Vellipoindhi Manasu – Nithya
Another film with the natural star Nani where she herself gave a natural performance. Posing as Nithya and taking us through the turns that love takes, Samantha showed us what every girl goes through in a relationship.
- Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu – Geetha
This one was a refreshing role played by the bubbly actress that was perhaps the closest to her real-life persona. Even though it was a multi-starrer, she held her own and didn’t lose the screen presence. Just remembering the playful Geetha puts a smile on our faces.
- Attarintiki Daredi – Sashi
‘Swamy nadiki poleda?’ was one dialogue that stood out throughout the movie. Courtesy this adorable actress who was attraction even though being in a power star’s film. Sashi found the way to her mother-in-law’s house and to our hearts.
- Manam – Krishna Veni/Priya
Dual role and double the treat! Samantha was amazing as yesteryear humble housewife in Krishna Veni and also as a girl-next-door in Priya. The Tollywood sweetheart couple of ChaySam returned with this film too.
- 24 – Sathya
Time flew by in this time-turning thriller as we saw Surya and Samantha find love in each other through the sandglass. Romance, action, thriller, comedy – all was rolled into one and Samantha delivered the scenes perfectly!
- A Aa – Anasuya Ramalingam
Teaching us how to stand up for yourself while still being adorable was the motto of Anasuya in A Aa. Trivikram films always have a certain charm and the fresh duo of Samantha and Nithin worked wonders too. She even won many accolades for the film.
- Janatha Garage – Bujji
Sharing screen space with Young Tiger again, Samantha experimented with a role who doesn’t sweep away the hero at the end. But she still stile the show being the ‘Apple Beauty’ that she was.
These are just 10 of the over 30 movies that she has done in the South Indian film industry and the damsel is just getting started. With some more biggies in her kitty like with Ram Charan and Mahanati, she is sure going to have a terrific year. Happy Birthday Samantha!
