Alaya F was open about the inevitable comparisons between her and the characters from Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s U-Turn.
As journalist Radhika Bakshi in the upcoming supernatural thriller U-Turn on ZEE5, Alaya F is ready to wow her fans. The 2016 Kannada film with Shraddha Srinath in the lead has been remade seven times, with this particular version being the latest. Hemal Ranasinghe (from Sri Lanka), Sandhya Raju (from Malayalam), Samantha Ruth Prabhu (from Telugu and Tamil), and others were among the actors that played the lead role.
Alaya was open about comparisons between her character and those portrayed by other actresses in the prior film adaptations, particularly Samantha in the Telugu and Tamil versions, in an exclusive interview
Talking about the comparisons that are bound to happen between her U-Turn character and that of Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Alaya F said, “I mean it’s a blessing to be compared to someone like her. To them (who will compare us) I say thank you.” She continued, “Please watch this film also and hopefully you will like this also. That’s all I said.”
Talking about living up to the standards set by Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Alaya F said, “You know, I try to do my best and… it is what it is. You can’t stress over things you can’t control. It’s pointless. It’s completely and utterly pointless. I’m already an over thinker and already a stresser, toh adding unnecessary stress to everything is totally unnecessary.”
