Mumbai: Famous actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu has come down to Mumbai for the promotion of her upcoming film `Shaakuntalam`. In the recent years, as the barrier between North and South films has been diminishing, Samantha talked about how there is no wall between the two industries.
Samantha told ANI, “There`s no wall between North and South films now. I don`t want to engage in any debate over this. As an actor, it gives me immense pleasure that I can work in films across languages. Nowadays, audiences also watch movies from different languages.”
`Shaakuntalam` is based on a popular Indian play `Shakuntala` by Kalidasa. Shakuntala was the wife of King Dushyant and the mother of emperor Bharata. The Pan-India mythological romantic drama will be out in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada.

And the story of this film is inspired from one of our oldest classics. Apart from the story, the movie has high-level graphics and special effects.” Dev Mohan has been paired opposite Samantha. Expressing her feeling, she said, “I am excited as well as a bit nervous. The budget of the film is quite high. But I feel, audience will love the movie.”
