Samantha reveals reason for not signing new films
At a time when Samantha is apparently slowing down as she is going to marry next year, the actress has opened up about lack of “meaningful roles” down South. “Realizing just how hard it is to get a meaningful role for a heroine in the South. I haven’t signed as many films as I would have liked to only and only because there are no good roles, as disheartening as it is to say” the ‘24’ star has tweeted.
In a career spanning more than 7 years, Samantha has acted in about 30 movies in Tamil and Telugu. She has paired up in films with top stars like like Vijay, Suriya, Vikram and Jiiva in Tamil and Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh Babu, Junior NTR and Allu Arjun in Telugu, However, she has got only a few strong roles such as the ones she played in the films ‘Ye Maya Chesave’, ‘Neethane En Ponvasantham’, ‘Naan Ee’ and ‘Theri’.
It’s observed that Sam is of late trying to do author-backed roles. In an earlier interview to IndiaGlitz, she said that she wants to do comedic roles. Sam’s tweets come at a time when Tapsee Pannu is walking away with laurels for the portrayal of a molestation victim in ‘Pink’ We hope Sam gets such powerful roles very soon.
