Samanthas Oh Baby first look unveiled

Nandini Reddy is one of the few women directors working in India today. The talented director has won a name for herself with films like Ala Modalaindi and Kalyana Vaibhogame. She has proved that she is good at making sensible romantic dramas.

Nandini Reddy is testing her luck with Oh Baby starring Samantha, which is slated for July 5th release. Although the buzz has been great around this film and the trailer is a super hit, there is a worrying aspect too. Oh Baby is based on the Korean drama Miss Granny. Nandini has tasted a bad result with a remake.

Nandini Reddy earlier remade Bollywood hit Band Baaja Baaraat into Jabardasth that also starred Samantha along with Siddharth. It was not an official remake. Nandini Reddy took a basic idea from this Bollywood movie and botched it up. The film was a disaster. Now that Oh Baby is also remade with Samantha as the lead actress, trade is worrying about this factor.

But Nandini is confident that this would become a huge hit.
