Samantha Akkineni is one of the leading actresses of South Indian cinema. Be it Kollywood or Tollywood, the actress is rocking a rising career in both industries.

The actress made her movie debut as a heroine in the 2010 film 'Ye Maaya Chesave', which she played with her then-colleague now-husband, Naga Chaitanya. The couple fell in love at the movie set and got married seven years later.

The actress is very active on social media and has huge followings on Twitter and Instagram. Unexpectedly, she changed her name Samantha Akkineni to simply 'S'.

Samantha's sudden move gave rise to many speculations. Some netizens argue that she would like to establish herself as a talented actress without the need to highlight the fact that she's from one of the most reputable families in Tollywood.

Well, there hasn't been any explanation from Samantha's side. Guess we'll have to wait to find out...
