Samantha's dalliance with martial art
- IndiaGlitz, [Thursday,April 20 2017,]
Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who is currently doing Ram Charan's 11th movie and a biopic of Mahanati Savithri, has got into a new hobby. She is practicing Silambam, a weapon-based Indian martial art with origins in Tamil Nadu.
Posting a short video of her practicing the same in a gym, all while looking into the mirror, Samantha said, "Because I like a challenge". The soon-to-be-married actress apparently believes in trying new things from time to time. Her enthusiasm for such challenges is infectious.
At a time when top heroines like Tamannah, Anushka and now Shruti Haasan have done/are doing roles that have something to do with martial arts, Samantha learning Silambam could well come in handy in future. You never know!
