The picture Shaakuntalam, starring samantha Ruth Prabhu, is described as "mythology for millennials" by producer Neelima Guna and her father, director Gunasekha.

Since the 1960s, there haven't been many on-screen mythological tales, according to Neelima. people have recently started to express interest in ancient and mythological tales once more. The older versions of Shakuntala's tale had more drama and some of the sanskrit poetry was still present. For the younger population, the drama has been toned down.
