    By Lekhaka

    Some time ago, it was rumoured that Samantha Akkineni would be playing the female lead in Pawan Kalyan's comeback film, a remake of the Bollywood hit movie Pink, and this gave cinemagoers a reason rejoice. Now, in a shocking development, the Manam beauty has reportedly refused to take up the project. Interestingly, she recently also said 'no' to the Hindi remake of U Turn as well, which implies she might not be interested in doing too many 'female-centric' films.

    In case, you did not know, Pink starred Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead and emerged as a surprise hit. It revolved around the harassment faced by women while highlighting that 'no means no'. The social-thriller was remade in Tamil as Nerkonda Paarvai, which raked in the moolah while impressing fans. The Telugu version, which might feature some mass elements, is likely to be as hard-hitting as the original. As such, many folks feel Sam made a mistake by rejecting the offer.
