Actress Samantha, who is basking in the opening
success of her latest film Yeto Vellipoyindi
Manasu, has revealed that she is not very keen on entering
Bollywood and she would like to make it big in South Indian cinema.
Meanwhile, she says that money is not her criteria and she always
looks for significant roles before signing a film.
Samantha, who has earlier made a guest appearance in Gautham
Menon's Hindi Ekk Deewana Tha, is now all set to debut as
heroine with the movie Assi Nabbe Poorey Sau, which is the
Bollywood version of Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu. This movie
is in the post-production stage and is slated to release in 2013.
In an interview to an English daily, she spoke about her debut and
said that she has never nourished B-town dreams.
When asked about Ileana and Tamanna's Bollywood plans, Samanta
said that Mumbai is their home town. Hence, they would want to make
it big in their territory. The actress, who is born and brought up
in Chennai, added that South is her home and she wants to continue
to do good movies in this area.
However, it was rumoured recently that Samanth has hiked her
remuneration to Rs 1.25 crore for Junior NTR's upcoming movie,
which is produced by Bellamkonda Suresh. But she slammed the
reports saying that it is not true. She added that money has never
been her criterion.
