Killing boredom is a task during the pandemic but being productive is something else. One could learn a lesson or two from actress Samantha Akkineni.

After shopping with her husband Naga Chaitanya, the actress along with her father-in-law Nagarjuna planted saplings as part of the Green India Challenge.

The actress also nominated actress Keerthy Suresh, Rashmika Mandanna and celebrity designer Shilpa Reddy to take up the challenge and keep the initiative going.

The actress who is quite active on social media, took to Instagram and posted the picture of her father-in-law and herself in the backyard of their house planting saplings.

The actress wrote, "I've accepted #HaraHaiTohBharaHai #GreenindiaChallenge from Nag mama. I planted 3 saplings. Further I am nominating@keerthysureshofficial @rashmika_mandanna @shilpareddy.official to plant 3 trees & continue the chain special thanks to @MPsantoshtrs garu for taking this initiative (sic)."

Ever since the lockdown began to the time certain relaxations based on the number of COVID-19 cases were introduced the actress has been keeping herself busy with cooking, terrace gardening and aerial yoga.

The actress is super excited to also make her digital debut soon with Manoj Bajpayee's The Family Man 2.
