At a time when her career has hit the right note both in Tamil and Telugu, actressSamantha has made a strange announcement saying that she won’t be taking any offers to star in films.
Samantha has, however, added a rider to her strange condition saying that the decision not to accept new film offers would be ‘in force’ till she is offered challenging roles by film-makers.
Samantha, who fell ill late last year and reportedly lost offers to star in Shankar and Mani Ratnam’s films, recovered later and is back in reckoning in both the film industries.
With her latest Telugu film Attharintiki Daaredhi opposite Pawan Kalyan declared as a ‘super’ hit. Her next film Ramayya Vasthavayya opposite Junior NTR releases this Friday (11th October). Besides, she has 4-5 Telugu films on hand which are in various stages of production. In this backdrop, the announcement made by her on her Twitter account has shocked her fans, to say the least.
Referring to her decision as ‘strike from work’, she has said “I won’t be taking up any new film offers for now and would wait till I’m offered an ideal role!” However, she has also added that she won’t be going back on her commitment to star in the films for which she has already been signed up. “Unless I expose my talents as an actress, my fans would reject me; hence this decision,” her tweet concluded thus.
Samantha has bagged Lingusamy’s untitled project opposite Surya in Tamil and is also said to be in producer-director AR Murugadoss’ mind as Vijay’s heroine in his next directorial venture in Tamil. Critics and her fans are apprehensive that at this juncture, her decision not to take up new film offers is due to her plans to get married to actor Siddharth very soon.
