Actress Samantha had earned the name of a heroine with substance with several performance oriented roles in Telugu. She is undoubtedly the best heroine performance wise in the current generation heroines in Telugu.
Needless to say she is also the highest paid actress in Telugu now. In several occasions, she refused fancy offers to don the bikini and glamorous outfits. But Samantha crossed the line and donned the two piece costume in Suriya's Sikinder (Anjaan in Tamil) and flaunted her sexy slim body in a song of the film.
But what is the reason for the sudden change of stance? It is said that the actress' desperation to establish hold on Tamil film industry forced her to don the Bikini in the film which released on Friday. Samantha's Neethaane En Ponvasantham directed by Gautam Menon bombed at the box office.
Even her first Tamil movie, Moscowin Kavery, was a disaster. So the Tamil industry is not so interested in her terming her as jinxed lady. Samantha has only two chances - Anjaan and Kaththi to try and establish her foothold in Tamil.
So she decided to take the Bikini route in Anjaan to attract the Tamil Thambis. But Anjaan has got flop talk in Tamil and is heading towards a failure there shattering the big hopes of Samantha.
We will have to see what the lady does in Kaththi which may be her last chance in the neighboring state.
