Following the stupendous success of ‘Naan Ee’ and with the talk of the town ‘Neethane En Ponvasntham’ gearing up for release, Samantha is on the path to consolidate her position in the industry. Despite parting with Maniratnam's 'Kadal' and Shankar's 'I' for reasons best known to her, the pretty lassie has reportedly bagged an offer in Lingusamy's next venture which has Suriya in the lead. Sources in the production camp reveal that the official signing will happen very soon. It is believed that Parineeti Chopra too was considered for the role but eventually lost out to Samantha.
With as many as 3 films ready for release in Telugu, Samantha has expressed her desire to sign more interesting projects in Tamil in the future. It’s fair to say that career-wise, the actress is certainly on the road to recovery.
