Samantha Akkineni is the go-to actress down South. Not just Tollywood, but she is the top actress in Tamil industry as well. Sam has acted alongside Jr NTR, Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan among other big stars. Considering her stardom down South, does she have plans for Bollywood debut?
Well, Samantha has spilled the beans on her Bollywood debut and her answer you leave you in shock. When asked about her Bollywood debut, Samantha avered as “NEVER”. She says, ” I’m from Chennai. That’s like, the south of the South. The thing is, I’m just about understanding my own people and my own culture and what is it that they like to watch in films. I’m still learning about how to get it right, what they want from a film, what is it that they want to see, what they expect from a character when I’m playing it… I am just about figuring that out”.
Majili actress feels that she would be completely alien to Bollywood who doesn’t have any idea about it. “I have no idea about the world that is Bollywood. I will just drown and be a complete alien. I still feel like I have more to give them, down South,” she says.
On the work front, Sam awaits the release of Oh!Baby on July 5th. The film is directed by Nandini Reddy which has Naga Shaurya as the lead actor.
