Today, when she turns 35, let's take a look at the times when the bold lady made remarkable strides in her field.
Essaying challenging roles and breaking stereotypes
Samantha, in one of the old interviews, said that at first, at the beginning of her career, she seemed like a cute and plump character, but she fought against it. Her role as Karaji in The Family Man 2 is proof. Your hard work pays off! Be it U Turn, Super Deluxe, Oh Baby, Rangasthalam or Mersal, Samantha proved that these roles and movies were meant for her.
Broke the myth of the sanskari Tollywood 'bahu'
Right after her marriage, she wore some clothes for the photoshoot that people said was "too revealing" and was trolled. But she took the first step, and did everything she could to bring about change. A lot needs to change! He's proven once again that clothes don't define your personality and that it's all about choices. Any woman's choice to feel confident in whatever she wants to wear.
The South Indian film industry has made its mark globally. However, actresses are always questioned for their daring roles. Samantha broke it by taking a special dance on the Pushpa of Allu Arjun. She is literally a firecracker in the song! With the lyrics in mind, he decided to pick the song to break stereotypes.
To play a progressive bisexual woman in her next film
Hollywood call! Samantha will join the cast of Arrangements Of Love, which will be directed by Philip John. While many actresses are still afraid of taking on unconventional roles, many are veered off course. Samantha is among those few! She is a complex character and it will be a challenge and an opportunity for her at the same time to play something she has never seen before.
Samantha empowers and inspires women
"I think the new ambition is for women to get what they deserve in cinema and to be more women in industry. By working with strong, talented women, directors and technicians, I want to empower them." I am able to do so much more if given the opportunity. Many Southern film directors appreciated my performance in The Family Man 2, but I've never had the opportunity to do so before. Just like me, there are many talented actors who have not been given the opportunity to show how capable they really are. I think no one will help us if we don't help ourselves. Samantha said during an interview with Anupama Chopra that it is our duty to search for texts or have people write for us.
