In her most recent video, the 33-year-old compiled snippets from her home gardening project where she is plucking and planting fresh veggies in her home garden herself. The actress could be seen sporting a multicoloured easy-breezy printed kurta that came with a Mandarin-style collar in the video.

“Let’s get our hands dirty,” said a spirited Samantha towards the end of her video and on to nominate Rakul Preet Singh and Lakshmi Manchu to take up the challenge.
