Actor Samantha Ruth Prabhu took to Instagram and expressed her feelings ahead of her upcoming film Yashoda’s theatrical release. She will be seen in the Telugu film, where she will essay the character of a surrogate mother. In a recent interview, the actor said that labelling movies as women-centric could be problematic, and wondered how many people go to theatres to watch such films. The film is slated to be released on November 11.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, she shared a picture of herself, where she kept her fingers crossed, and wrote, “Extremely nervous and especially excited! One day to go. Mee andhariki Yashoda nachchalani gattiga korukuntunna. Good vibes to my directors, producer, cast and entire crew as they wait like me for your verdict tomorrow.

In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, she talked about women-centric films in the industry and said, “I don’t think there is a dearth of stories. Many stories are written for women or roles that are written for women on equal footing.” She added, “But the question that we really need to ask is how many people are willing to go and watch these movies? Why are these movies even categorized as ‘women-centric’? As a society, it often takes a lot of introspection to evolve. And I think we are at crossroads right now and it’s going to be a collective effort on everyone’s parts to make that change.”
