Details about the technical crew and supporting cast will be revealed soon. This is the first project the actress has signed after tying the knot with Naga Chaitanya last October.

"The film will be wrapped up in three to four straight schedules. Samantha loved the movie when she watched it in a special screening almost a year back. Talks have been on and off for the past one year, and due to Samantha's prior professional and personal commitments, the team decided to wait for her. Now, she has almost wrapped up all her ongoing assignments and is ready to begin U-Turn," informs a source.

Samantha currently has a bevy of projects in hands such as Vishal's Irumbu Thirai, Ram Charan-Sukumar's Rangasthalam, the Savitri biopic Mahanati/Nadigaiyar Thilagam, Aaranya Kaandam fame director Thiagarajan Kumararaja's Super Deluxe and the untitled film with Sivakarthikeyan directed by Ponram.

While Irumbu Thirai, Rangasthalam, and Mahanati are slated to hit screens by March-end, Sivakarthikeyan-Ponram project is scheduled for a summer release.
