The story of Shakuntala is found in the Adiparva chapter of the Mahabharata. The story was dramatized by many scholars, but the most popular was Kalidasa’s Abhijnan Shakuntalam, which is also taught in literature. According to mythology, Shakuntala is the daughter of Maharishi Vishwamitra and Apsara Menaka.
Both had left the girl near the hermitage of Kanva Rishi, who raised Shakuntala. Shakuntala and Dushyant met in the forest, where they had gone hunting. The two fell in love and Gandharva married. They both had a son named Bharata. Allu Arjun’s daughter Allu Arha plays this character.
Let us tell you that Samantha Pushpa became very popular with her special song Oo Antva on The Rise. The movie was also released in Hindi which also brought Samantha a lot of popularity in the Hindi belt.
