Recently Samantha has given a statement while sharing her thoughts on a talk show. Responding to a question about the possible heroine who is not her competition, Samantha picked up Shruti Haasan from options which also include names like Kajal Agarwal and Tamanna. We don't know why Sam stated that way, but today both these heroines have challenged each other at box office.
Samantha is paired up with Vijay in Kathhi, while Shruti Haasan sizzled opposite Vishal in Poojai and both the flicks got released today. Interestingly, both Samantha and Shruti did similar characters in these two movies. Except sizzling in a couple of songs with enormous oomph factor, these two hotties got nothing much to do in these movies. We have to say that Samantha picked up another routing commercial-heroine role, while Shruti too followed the same. And then, both these girls haven't done any magic with their beauty to turn Kathhi and Poojai into blockbusters either.
Kathhi got appreciated from Tamil critics but audience verdict is that the movie is little slow and philosophical. Poojai is a routine fare and only mass audiences at B & C centres will like it. Katthi's Telugu version release is pending, while Pooja made it in both woods today.
