Samantha has made a decision- not to sign any new films this year. Because the actress’s diary is already overflowing with projects in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi which will keep her busy throughout 2012.
She is currently doing a trilingual with Gautham Vasudev Menon. Titled ‘Neethanae En Ponvasantham’ in Tamil, the movie marks Samantha’s debut in Bollywood, since it is simultaneously being in Telugu and Hindi too.
And she has Mani Ratnam’s ‘Kadal’, an offer which has made the ‘Bana Kathadi’ girl super happy. “It is a big gift to act in Mani sir’s movie so early in my career. I am so thrilled to work with such a great filmmaker,” she says.
Also in Samantha’s kitty are four Telugu projects- ‘Seethamma Vaakitlo Chirumalle Chettu’ with Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu, ‘Eega’ (‘Naan Ee’) directed by SS Rajamouli, and yet-to-be-titled films with Ramcharan Teja and Siddharth.
