The most sought after actress in the South film industry Samantha Akkineni has a massive fan base because of her flawless acting, especially in Telugu and Tamil films.
However, the actress not only won the hearts down south butbeyond South region. So, there has always been a demand for her Bollywood debut. However, the actress made it crystal clear that she might 'never' be seen in Bollywood as she thinks she will 'drown' in the industry.
In a recent interview, the Majili actress finally revealed whether she will ever do a Bollywood film. She said, "Never." Elaborating further, she said, "Like I just said, I'm from Chennai. That's like, the south of the South. The thing is, I'm just about understanding my own people and my own culture and what is it that they like to watch in films. I'm still learning about how to get it right, what they want from a film, what is it that they want to see, what they expect from a character when I'm playing it... I am just about figuring that out."
"I have no idea about the world that is Bollywood. I will just drown and be a complete alien," she added.
The actress was seen in a short role in Prateik Babbar-Amy Jackson starrer Ekk Deewana Tha but that is her only Bollywood outing till now.
On the work front, Samantha will be next seen in the July 5 release, Oh! Baby.
