Recently, rumours were rife that Oh! Baby star Samantha Akkineni would be associating with director BV Nandini Reddy once again with a Korean remake. On Wednesday, the director took to her Twitter to clarify that her next is a project that is to be bankrolled by Swapna Dutt and Priyanka Dutt’s production banner Swapna Cinema.
She also denied the rumour that her next will also be a remake, much like her previous Oh! Baby, and mentioned that it is an original idea. She also took a jibe at the rumour-mongers and asked them to up their game the next time.

Her previous film, Oh! Baby, starred Samantha in the titular role with veteran actress Lakshmi essaying the older version of Samantha’s character, Baby. Apart from them, actors Naga Shaurya, Rajendra Prasad, and Rao Ramesh had also played important roles. The film is the official remake of Korean director Hwang Dong-hyuk’s hit film Miss Granny.
Oh! Baby that hit screens in July 2019, opened up to positive reviews from critics and audiences and fared well at the box office. It was also dubbed in Tamil and released with the same name.
Meanwhile, Samantha will next feature in Ashwin Saravanan‘s untitled Tamil horror film, Vignesh Shivan‘s Tamil romedy Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kadhal and the second season of Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s drama web series The Family Man. She was last seen in C Prem Kumar‘s romantic drama Jaanu, the Telugu remake of the 2018 Tamil hit 96 by the same director. The film opened up to good reviews from critics.
