Indian cinema has been dominated by male actors for many years and a hero's popularity played a major role in the success of a film.

As a part of its promotion, the hero's photos or logo of his fil would be printed on T-shirts and other merchandise.

But things are fast changing with a series of female-centric films becoming success stories at the box office. Today some heroines are also getting it for themselves.

Samantha Akkineni, who is known for style statements, is now entering the league of such heroines. She is now seen with Sharwanand in her latest movie Jaanu.

Released on February 7, the movie is making a good collection at the box office. The makers of the movie held a success party on Sunday. The actress attended this event along with Sharwa and other cast and crew of the film.

Samantha Akkineni stole the show with the kind of saree she flaunted at the success meet of Jaanu. The actress sported Urvashi Sethi's Picchika saree with the name Jaanu printed on it.

Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor was the first one to have such saree and now Sam has become the first one to wear it down south.

The customized saree of Samantha Akkineni is now talk of the town with many speaking about it on social media. Many girls are asking the actress about the saree as they also want to have a similar one.
