Samantha met with Downton Abbey director Philip John in Chennai earlier this month, according to reports. Samantha has officially been confirmed to join the cast of Arrangements Of Love, which will, of course, be directed by Philip John.
Arrangements of Love is a film version of Timeri N Murari's novel of the same name. Samantha will play a feisty and progressive bisexual Tamil lady who operates a detective service, according to an international news source. Samantha told Variety, "A whole new world opens up for me today as I begin my journey with 'Arrangements Of Love,' which has such an adorable and intimate story."
"I'm thrilled to be working with Philip John, whose projects I've been following for years as a fan of Downton Abbey. I'm excited to work with Sunitha (Sunitha Tati, who worked with Samantha on Oh! Baby) again, and I'm hoping for even more success than we had with Oh! Baby. It will be both a challenge and a chance for me to play such a nuanced character. "I can't wait to get on set," she continued.
