Samantha, who has been on top in both Tamil and Telugu film industries, has asserted that she didn’t bother about accusations of charging ‘more’ as her fee per film.
“I am in demand among producers and directors and there is nothing wrong in charging as fee what I feel is right; in fact, when the producers are willing to cough up the money, why should others bother about it?” she says in a matter-of-fact manner.
Critics have been saying that despite the not-so-good show of her recent films, Samantha never really thought of reducing her fee per film. Speaking to newsmen recently, the Neethane En Ponvasantham girl did some candid talk.
“In films, prominence is invariably attached to heroes and the script is also made to revolve around them. Heroines are equally important, I feel; fans flock to theatres to watch us in films.
“Therefore, we are also important and shouldn’t be considered any less important as compared to the heroes and directors. Criticism is always made about the fee of heroines but not the fee of heroes and directors. If a heroine is in demand, she gets what she wants or demands; otherwise, she doesn’t: this is a simple fact and a reality.
“As such, there is nothing wrong in hiking fee per film demanding on the market of the heroine at that particular point of time. In my case, making money is not my only objective in life.
In fact, if the script is too good, I’m ready to even to star in it without taking any money,” she added and denied that she was in talks with a premium brand of inner-wear to star as model.
