Contrary to reports, offers haven’t dried up for her since she made her engagement announcement. “She has been signing films. In fact, she’s even more interested to work now as her beau Naga Chaitanya and his family supports her decision to continue acting. She’s definitely not in the mood to stop acting,” the source said.

It will be Sam’s first horror outing. Being directed by Ohmkar, the film also stars Seerat Kapoor, Vennela Kishore and Shakalaka Shankar.
