Samantha will not do films like Dookudu anymore

Samantha Akkineni brought some magic with her during the debut Em Maya Chesaave. The success of this Nagachaitanya starrer made Samantha a new favorite for the filmmakers and she was immediately given a chance to act with NTR in Brindavanam. And then it was a chance to dance alongside Superstar Mahesh Babu. Dookudu became a record-breaking blockbuster making Samantha the obvious choice for star actors. You would even say, the film changed her status. But Samantha will not do a film like Dookudu anymore. Why?!–nextpage–>

Things change with time. Back then, Samantha had to cement her place in the industry no matter how. Samantha was not an integral part of Dookudu. She had a funny romantic trank with Mahesh Babu and had a couple of songs to dance. In other words, her character had no importance in the story.

Today, Samantha isn’t just a glamour doll. She is not a starlet. She need not dance alongside star heroes. She is not dependent on star heroes either. Moreover, she is not in dire need of a blockbuster. She can now satisfy the actress in her.

“I will not do films like Dookudu from now. I want to do only content-driven films with importance to my character. I wouldn’t have done a character like Amrutha (Raju Gari Gadhi 2) during my initial days. Now, I will not do a Dookudu again” says Samantha at the press event of Raju Gari Gadhi 2.
