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.
