Whoever assumed pregnancy to be the reason for Samantha Akkineni's exit from Vijay Sethupathy and Nayanthara starrer clearly got it wrong. The actress is in fact gearing up for the shooting of her next project with the young director, Ashwin Saravanan. The director rose to popularity with his second movie, Game Over and he has previously Nayanthara in his debut movie, Maya. His new venture with Samantha is supposed to be a horror-thriller, something on the lines of his debut film.
