Going by the poster, it looks like the film will be about the coming together of two people from two different worlds. The film marks the second collaboration of Samantha and Vijay Deverakonda after Mahanati, in which they were paired together.
Sharing the poster, Vijay captioned the post, “#Kushi (red heart emoji) Sept 1st. With full love, @Samanthaprabhu2 @ShivaNirvana @MythriOfficial @HeshamAWMusic & your man.” Samantha, sharing the poster, wrote, “Whole heart (white heart emoji).”
Last May, the film's title along with the poster was revealed. Samantha, in an Instagram post, described it as a film that will be a grand family experience. After completing the first schedule in Kashmir, the film’s shoot came to a standstill after Samantha revealed she was suffering from a rare auto-immune disease called Myositis.
Samantha had to pause all her commitments as she was undergoing treatment for her medical condition. Therefore, the shoot of Kushi had to be postponed for several months and the team waited for fresh dates from Samantha to resume shooting.
A few months ago, replying to a question from a fan about when she will resume shoot for Kushi, Samantha wrote, “Kushi will resume very soon. My apologies to @TheDeverakonda fans (sic).” In reply to Samantha’s tweet, fans asked her to take care of herself first. They also called her gesture ‘sweet’. A person tweeted, “Thank you Sam. But please take care of yourself (sic).” Another Twitter user wrote, “Such a sweet gesture (sic).”
Recently, Samantha returned to the sets of Kushi after many months. On her return, she was welcomed with a cake. Pictures of Samantha from the sets of Kushi surfaced on social media. Director Shiva Nirvana took to Twitter and described Samantha as a “fighter” as she returned to the sets.
Samantha was last seen on screen in Telugu action-thriller Yashoda. She played a surrogate mother who won’t stop at anything to protect her child. The film turned out to be a hit at the box office.
