Trip to Ibiza- These expenses are hotter than Samantha

0

All the pictures coming from the Spanish island of Ibiza where Samantha and Naga Chaitanya are holidaying from the past week along with their family members are spicing the internet. Though many might drool over Sam’s charms, some couples would be thinking if they could afford a similar holiday. Here is what it takes.

First of all, the most expensive thing is the flight ticket if you want to fly off like Samantha over an Emirates first-class flight. It costs nearly 5 lakhs/person for a round trip, while British Airways and Qatar Airways economy class flights with baggage included costs around Rs 1 lakh / round trip per person.

The 5-star beach resort like Hardrock where Samantha is staying is pretty close to Ibiza airport charges nearly 5,000 euros for a mid-range suite for 7 days with breakfast. That adds up to Rs 4 lakhs for the room stay.

Events like ‘Children of the 80s’ which Samantha attended, as she shared a video of it a couple of days back on her Instagram stories, cost you 30 euros per person. Dining at a poolside splash bar in the hotel costs 100 euros per person. Shaking a leg at the event, lunch and dining together costs nearly 350 euros per day, that means close to another 4 lakhs of spending for a week per couple.

A seven-hour luxury boat trip like ‘Ibiza Calma’ which Samantha took on the day of her arrival, costs around 750 euros person, thus costing Rs 1,20,000 / couple.

If we put together all the costs, it is almost 20 lakhs for the flights, stay and food with short boat trips and attendance to a couple of night events. So for normal travellers, say an IT industry couple, this quite expensive and hotter than Samantha for sure.

All said and done, a couple could plan a round-trip to Ibiza from Hyderabad under 3 lakhs budget as well if 5-star luxury is not on the cards but enjoy the scenic Ibiza island is on their cards in a limited budget.

Samantha’s Smart Choices in Movies

0

The cute and bubbly Samantha started off her career in Tollywood as the stern yet adorable girl next door in Gautham Menon’s ‘Em Maaya Chesaave ‘. Her beginnings were quite sober with plain looks yet amazing in the way she carried the saree outfit. Many men in Telugu households became a fan of Samantha’s saree draping and the way she brought back a beautiful attraction to it.

But the actress outgrew herself admirably with interesting film choices right from the word go. She tried to come out of the girl next door image with a glamorous role in Jr.NTR’s ‘Brundavanam’ which was a smashing hit. But the best in the store was when she acted in S.S.Rajamouli’s ‘Eega’ in which she played the role of a micro artist who is stalked by a lustful businessman played by Sudeep. It was then her real acting skills and performance could be seen by the audience.

When Sam got married to her long-lasting love and first movie co-star Naga Chaitanya, many eyebrows were raised about her career post-wedding. Will she confine to only certain kinds of roles? Or like most of the female leads in South Indian Cinema, will her career go off the hook? But the way Sam has transformed as a complete actress after her wedding is commendable. Her post-wedding releases like ‘ Rangasthalam ‘, U-Turn, Majili and Tamil flick Super Deluxe shows how smart her choices are. Every role demanded her to act with versatility and she pulled off each look with so much care and perfection.

Just when the audience felt Samantha has already reached her best, she came up with Nandini Reddy’s ‘Oh Baby’ in which she had to emote as a 70-year-old woman in 24-year old’s body. Her body language, facial expressions are getting rave reviews and appreciation unanimously. It was indeed a challenge for a young actress like her to imitate the body language of a senior most actress like Lakshmi. But Samantha pulled off the role with such perfection and grace that she is termed as the most versatile female lead of Tollywood right now!

All in all, Samantha is giving some great goals for all those aspiring female leads who feel that the career span of actresses in the film industry goes off with time.

US box office : Oh Baby leads over new releases

0

Samantha’s solo film Oh Baby is dominating the Tollywood box office in USA despite the release of two new films. The female centric film is collecting decent revenues in the second weekend as Sundeep Kishan’s Ninu Veedani Needanu Nenu and Doorasani failed to attract audience in their opening weekend.

Ninu Veedani Needanu Nenu, which created decent buzz with interesting promos, couldn’t manage to impress the overseas audience. The horror comedy collected a meagre $ 5.8K on its opening day including premiers. Anand Devarakonda’s rustic entertainer Doorasani turned out to be a disappointment in overseas as it collected a paltry $ 2.5K on its first day.

Taking advantage of the poor openings of new releases, Samantha’s Oh Baby surpassed the $ 800K mark by second Saturday. After a promising first week with $ 700K, Oh Baby maintained its decent run by collecting $ 50K and $ 57K on second Friday and Saturday respectively. The film has a good chance to join the million dollar club. Trade circles have already declared the film a hit in overseas market.

Who is correct, Who is wrong: Sandeep Reddy vs Female celebrities

Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the dirrector of Kabir singh(remake of Arjun Reddy), is at the center of controversy that is stirring social media. Samantha, Chinmayi, Anasuya and some netizens took strong objection to Sandeep Vanga’s recent statements in an interview calling them as “deeply disturbing”. Some others supported Sandeep Vanga. Social media is literally split into two groups in support of and against of these groups.

It all started with Rajeev Masand’s review:

Bollywood critic Rajeev Masand giving the rating of 2 out of 5 and passing the remark that this movie is an unapologetic celebration of toxic masculinity didn’t go well with the director Sandeep vanga. He lambasted Rajeev Masand and called him biased reviewer. He even questioned when Rajeev Masand doesn’t have problem with Sanju and has given it 3.5 stars, why does he have an issue with Kabir Singh.

Sandeep’s comments in Anupama Chopra interview raked up the controversy:

While the “director vs critics” issue is still on, Sandeep stirred up a storm with his comments in his interview with Anupama chopra. He said in that interview, “When you are deeply in love and deeply connected to a woman (and vice versa), if you don’t have the liberty of slapping each other, then I don’t see any love there and these women critics whoever are talking this Kabir Singh were never in love”

Actress Kubbra Sait’s hilarious video poking Sandeep Vanga went viral:

Actress, model and TV host Kubbra Sait, who acted in Sultan, Ready and Netflix original Sacred Games took jibe at Sandeep by posting a hilarious video in which she and her man are seen slapping each other and showing that reaction as love. She even posted another video in which she slaps herself to show self-love of herself.

It turned feministic after Chinmayi and Samantha’s comments

Chinmayi Sripada, popular dubbing artiste(dubs for Samantha) and singer, has been vocal on issues pertaining to women and was forerunner during #MeToo movement. She wrote in her handle, “”If a man is deeply connected with you, he will never slap you. He will never touh you without your consent. Women (and young boys) have been told for aeons that being beaten up is a sign of Love. IT IS ABUSE!”. Actress Samantha, who earlier praised Arjun Reddy as good movie also seconded the opinion of Chinmayi. When netizens reminded that she praised Arjun Reddy movie earlier, she replied, “Liking the film and disagreeing with a comment are two different things. I loved the story of one Arjun Reddy but not the generalisation that love means having the liberty of slapping people around”. Another anchor Anasuya, who objected Arjun Reddy movie also joined these two.

#WeSupportSandeepReddyVanga’ viral as netizens support Sandeep

All these comments went viral and some netizens started trending the hashtag for ‘#WeSupportSandeepReddyVanga’ . They called these female celebrities as pseudo-feminists. Some even reminded Samantha that there is scene in Rangasthalam in which she is slapped by Ram Charan. Some netizens also reminded about the movie scenes being written and directed by Rahul Raveendran, husband of Chinmayi. RGV also started praising Sandeep Vanga and showed his support.

But is everything fine with Sandeep’s statement and these ladies need to be trolled:

Even though, it is not correct to find fault with each and every movie by bringing some topic or other, it needs to be remembered that these women found fault with the real-life statements of film maker but not with film dialogues or the statements of any fictitious character in the movie. In the country where hundreds of domestic violence cases are filed each and every day by the ladies after being beaten up by their husbands, romanticizing the concept of bashing up on weaker sex in real life interview is definitely not something to be done by a responsible film maker. Saying something through a movie character is something different but carrying the persona of film character into real life is not a welcome move. At the same time, the critics who point fingers at characterization of Arjun Reddy/ Kabir SIngh need to understand it is just a movie.
