The actress tweeted, "Got my final cervical cancer vaccine shot...one less reason to be afraid.. Girls pls make sure u get vaccinated for u and ur family."
According to reports, Cervical Cancer kills more than 90,000 women a year in India alone. There have been many awareness programs to make women across India aware of this so that women across the country can prevent this disease in the early stages itself.
These days, Samantha Akkineni is on cloud 9 after being roped in to play the title role in the biopic of Bangalore Nagarathnamma. The news made Samantha and her fans excited as it is being helmed by senior director Singeetham Srinivasa Rao of Pushpaka Vimanamu fame.

Now, Samantha is waiting to hear the narration from Singeetham Srinivasa Rao. A source quoted by Deccan Chronicle, said, "The director has approached Samantha for the biopic, and Samantha has shown positive signs about taking up this film, and once the director gives a complete narration of the story, she would like to finalise it.
