New Delhi: The teaser of Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s pan-India film ‘Yashoda’ was dropped on Friday. The film is directed by Hareesh Narayan and Hari Shankar. The teaser begins with Samantha, who plays Yashoda, learning that she is pregnant. The doctor gives her a series of instructions. She tells her: “In the first three months, you have to be very careful. You have to eat on time and sleep peacefully. You have to walk carefully and mind every step. You cannot lift weights. Whatever you do, make sure you don’t get hurt. You should not get shocked or scared suddenly. Be happy and keep smiling always.”
Every instruction of the doctor is followed by a flitting glimpse of an action sequence that shows Yashoda doing exactly the opposite of what the doctor advises her. The thrilling teaser gives the impression that Yashoda is in some kind of mortal danger and that she has to fight for her survival. While releasing the trailer on social media, Samantha wrote: “Strength, willpower and adrenaline!”
