About Ye Maaya Chesave

Gautham shot Ye Maaya Chesave and its Tamil counterpart Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, starring Simbu and Trisha in the lead roles, simultaneously. He changed the ending of the Telugu version, giving Samantha and Naga’s characters a happier ending. The film tells the story of a young man falling for a conservative woman who’s two years older than him. Ye Maaya Chesave was a massive hit, cementing Samantha’s status in the film industry and giving Naga the needed hit. Seven years later, Samantha and Naga would marry each other in Goa. In 2021 they announced their separation.

Upcoming work

Samantha took a break from work post her myositis diagnosis and the release of Shaakunthalam and Kushi. She shot for Citadel’s Indian chapter with Raj & DK, apart from actor Varun Dhawan. She is also hosting a podcast called Take 20, centered around health.
