Samantha Ruth Prabhu, the versatile actress who has won hearts with her performances in films like Rangasthalam, Oh! Baby and The Family Man 2, has wrapped up the shooting of her upcoming web series Citadel India. The actress took to Instagram to share a heartfelt note for the team and also hinted at taking a break from acting.

Citadel India is a spin-off of the global spy thriller series Citadel, produced by the Russo Brothers and starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden. Samantha will be seen opposite Varun Dhawan in the Indian installment, directed by Raj and DK, who had earlier collaborated with her on The Family Man 2.

Samantha wrote, “And it’s a wrap on #CitadelIndia. A break doesn’t seem like a bad thing at all when you know what’s coming," she penned. "@rajanddk @mensit The family I didn’t know I needed. Thank you for helping me fight every single battle and never ever giving up on me. I wish more than anything in the world to make you proud. Thank you for the role of a lifetime… i.e until you write me the next.”

According to reports, Citadel India will have a strong connection with the American series and will explore Priyanka Chopra’s character’s past. The show will also feature characters that can travel back and forth between the different versions of Citadel. The series is expected to have huge action sequences, twists and turns, and a global appeal.

Samantha had earlier expressed her excitement about being a part of Citadel India and said, “When Prime Video and Raj & DK approached me with this project, I decided to take it up in a heartbeat! After working with this team on The Family Man, it is homecoming for me. The Citadel universe, the interconnected storylines between the productions across the globe, and most importantly, the script of the Indian installment really excited me. I am thrilled to be a part of this brilliant universe conceptualised by the Russo Brothers’ AGBO.”
