“Namma Chennai girl” Samantha had never tasted success in Kollywood.
Her launch films in Tamil, Moscovin Kaveri and Bana Kathadi were duds at the box-office.
However Samantha’s career zoomed in Tollywood after her Ye Maaya Chesave, Brindavanam and recent Dookudu were super hits.
Actually Dookudu turned out to be a blockbuster and made her the hottest heroine in Tollywood.
Now Samantha is determined to make it big in Kollywood. The first of her releases this April will be leading Telugu director SS Rajamouli’s bilingual Naan Ee.
It is a superhero film where she is pitted opposite Nani of Veppam fame.
Says Samantha : “ I think Naan Ee is going to be a breakthrough film for me as I have a very pivotal role. After that my next release in Tamil will be Gautham Menon’s Neethaane En Ponvasantham. I’m doing also a few films in Telugu.”
Samantha is also cast as Mani Ratnam’s heroine opposite new boy Gautham in his under production film Kadal. She is waiting for an official announcement from his production house. The actress is hoping that this year will turn out to be memorable for her in Kollywood.
