Samantha Converted to Hinduism?
Hyderabad: Has Samantha, a born Christian, got converted into Hinduism? This is the question making rounds in Tollywood circles of late. The reason for the rumour is a set of two photos seen circulating in social media.
Samantha has been engaged to Nagarjuna’s son Chaitanya (chaitu) and all three of them were seen in a pojaa scene in the photos all wearing kumkuma on forehead. Some Hindu priests also were seen behind. Both Chaitu and Samantha were squatting on a mat. Samantha was on record stating that she would first get married in Chennai according to Christian customs and then the wedding would take place in Hyderabad according to Hindu tradition.
The film nagar sources say Samantha has got converted to Hinduism as Akkineni family made it a soft condition to accept the alliance. The twitters of Samantha, Chaitanya and Nagarjuna are silent on this aspect. The Malayali kutti will be a second person outside the caste or State to enter into a wedlock with an Akkineni. The first ofcourse was Amala.
