Southern babe Samantha may be starring in the Tamil-Telugu-Hindi tri-lingual by Gautham Vasudev Menon, but she’s made it clear she has no plans to wing it to Bollywood anytime soon
“I’ll be concentrating on Tamil movies,” says the Baana Kathadi actor, who’s also popular in Telugu. “It’s true I like exploring other languages, but I won’t be shifting base to B-Town. My acting career was launched in Kollywood and I became popular in Telugu. So I am staying with the South,” the actor says. Samantha is currently working on this trilingual with Jiiva, Nani and Aditya Roy Kapur.
Samantha is currently working on the Gautham Menon project, titled Neethane En Ponvasantham in Tamil. She is also acting in Naan Ee by ace Tollywood director S S Rajamouli. “I have significant roles in both projects. I am thankful to these directors for giving me these parts,” says Samantha. The actor is collecting about Rs 75 lakh in Tollywood per project but is taking home a lesser fee in Kollywood. Samantha is clearly becoming a producer favourite and her fan following is not far behind Ileana and Anushka.
