Samantha is very clever when it comes to choice of films and has got the knack of balance both character-driven subjects and commercial potboilers. That’s the reason behind her phenomenal success rate!
During a recent media interaction, Our Golden Leg made it clear that what matters to her is the capability of the director and the role offered to her rather than the heroes. “I feel, None of the heroines have been able to receive roles which have scope for performance in the recent past. Films like ‘Manam’ are very rare to come. Post this multi-starrer, I waited a lot for stories with good scope for performance. But, That didn’t happen! Hence, I am choosing the best from the films offered to me. For me, Directors are important not Heroes. I am signing projects of filmmakers who create a important characters. I am playing strong roles in AR Murugadoss, Lingusamy and Vijay Milton films. I hope they earn me good name,” she reveals.
Samantha explains the reason behind signing ‘Autonagar Surya’ despite having less screen time. She says, ‘Audience shouldn’t feel bored of watching me again and again. Hence, I choose ‘ANS’. Those who have seen the film feel Samantha should have been offered more screen time. That gives me the satisfaction’.
