Silambam, a Tamil-based martial arts sport has recently caught Samantha's interest; She calls it her new hobby and is keen on getting better at it.


She tweets "Because I like a challenge. New hobby. Silambam. Can't wait to get better at this." She also shared a video in which she is seen practising Silambam, like a professional.


In the video, the way she swings that bamboo stick from one hand to the other, also moving forward and back at the same time is a treat to the eyes.
