Reports say that pretty Samantha, who played Trisha’s role in the Telugu version of ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya’ and starred as debutant Atharva’s heroine in last year’s ‘Baana Kathadi’, is said to be turning a blind eye to Tamil film offers pouring in on her lap.
For some reasons, she appears to have decided that except her mentor and director Gautham Menon’s films, she would never be committing herself to doing any other Tamil film(s) in the near future. For Menon, though, her call-sheet diary is always there for him to fill up the requisite number of days.
Samantha was to star opposite Ajith in his landmark 50th film which was to be directed by Gautham Menon a few months back. As it turned out, Gautham and Ajith fell out with each other, resulting in Samantha missing out on what could have been a major break in her career.
For the present, Samantha is said to in no mood to turn to Kollywood as she is planning to ‘cement’ her place in Tollywood but would make a ‘concession’ if Menon approached her for a role in one of his films. Samantha reminds one of Anushka, who switched over to Tollywood after her debut film in Tamil (‘Rendu’) flopped and then had to invariably make a comeback to Tamil films.
