Samantha has completed seven years in the cinema industry. The actress has done several Tamil and Telugu movies to her credit. She started her career in Gautham Menon‘s Telugu film, Ye Maaya Chesave which was simultaneously made in Tamil as Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. The actress has stated that she has completed seven long years in the film industry.
Going down memory lane, Samantha wrote a long post in her micro-blog, ‘It’s been 7 years and I am in a talking mood. So like any rags to riches story, I have had my fair share of hardships, insecurities, failure, rejection, pain, sadness, success, fame and wealth. But that does not mean I became happier as I became more successful. Oh, happiness isn’t so simple.
It took me only 7 years (pun intended) to understand how to crack the art of normalcy.. understand that ‘if I don’t shoot every single day of the year I am not a failure,’ that people who abuse me on social media spend less time thinking about me than I about them,”that I will not have a heart attack and die over time there is a problem,’ ‘that there always is a next time,’ and most importantly, `your story is a success only when you make other people a part of it.’ I guess what I am trying to say is… what I have learned in this time is that all the fame, all the wealth, and all the success does not necessarily mean all the happiness.
The greatest blessing cinema has offered me has been the people it has introduced into my life. People who have influenced my entire being. And it gave me your love, love that I hung onto dearly and desperately in hard times… and fondly and gratefully on sunny days. Thank you so very much. Will keep loving you all back all my life. #7yearsofYMC.’
It may be recalled that Samantha recently got engaged to a long time boyfriend Naga Chaitanya, who played the male lead in Ye Maaya Chesave. The two are expected to get married by the end of this year.
Post her engagement, several offers have been coming her way. The actress has now signed up for a Telugu horror-comedy titled Raju Gari Gadhi 2. Apart from that, she will be seen on screen in Vijay-Atlee flick and Irumbu Thirai with Vishal in Kollywood.
