Samantha Ruth Prabhu is back in the bay after spending a month in the United States of America. The Yashoda actress took to her Instagram account and dropped a picture of her pet Sasha and captioned the post, “Down not out !!”. Varun Dhawan commented on the post with a high-five emoji. For those who do not know, she was in the U.S to prepare for her the series ‘Citadel’.
Made under the direction of filmmaker duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the series will see Varun Dhawan as the lead opposite Samantha. We had earlier reported that these two will perform high-octane action stunts as a part of their roles and are even training in martial arts for the same. Going by the reports, they are also likely to have a Hollywood stunt director on board the team. A little birdie told us, “Both Varun and Samantha are required to have a toned physique for Citadel and have already started working on it. Meanwhile, they will start their martial arts training in August-end, while the show is expected to roll by September-end or early October. The training will go on for around a month’s time. Raj and DK are currently in the process of fine-tuning the script and will start with the casting process for the supporting team in August. The makers are also getting a Hollywood action director on board to choreograph the massive fight sequences for the show.”
In addition to this, the project will reportedly be set against the backdrop of the 90s. A source close to the development revealed, “Citadel India is set in the 1990s. In fact, the makers play around in two timelines – the start and the end of the 90s. A special look is being worked on for Varun and Samantha, as both, the actors are looking to start their workshops by early November.”
