Samantha is currently working with Prince Mahesh for ‘Dookudu’ under the direction of Sreenu Vytla and with Nani for ‘Eega’ under the direction of Rajamouli. Back to Kollywood we hear Samantha Prabhu, looks up to none other than Trisha for inspiration! Here is an excerpt from what she had to tell us during a short interview.
So your role as Jessie in the Telugu version Ye Maya Chesave, won you a Filmfare award for Best Debut Female .Did you watch Trisha’s performance of the same.
Well, Trisha is my favorite actress her role as Jessie in Vinnaithandi Varuvaayaa was superb.
What was your approach for the Telugu version?
It really helped that director Gautham Menon did not show me the scenes shot with Trisha in the Tamil version. I gave my best but when I saw Trisha’s performance in VTV, I thought it was tremendous.
Yes it was, any new projects that you would like to tell your fans about?
I am getting ready for another Gautham Menon flick, and this time it will be with Jiiva. I’m really excited about it.
Is it VTV2?
I don’t know if it is VTV-2, but all I can say for the moment is that it will be an interesting love story and I am pumped up to start work on this film. More news will follow soon don’t worry.
Best of luck for your Kollywood venture Samantha.
Thanks, well, the movie would be a bilingual. Thank you for the interview.
Thank you for a great time, we hope you enjoy every moment of work with Gautham Menon.
