If reports are to be believed, Samantha has decided to retire from acting after having done her life’s most memorable performance in Jaanu, which is a remake of Tamil hit 96 which had Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha in lead roles.
In an interview earlier, the actress who is one of the top female stars in the south, said that she had decided to quit acting in cinemas in two or three years.
Stating that an actress’s lifespan is always shorter than an actor’s in cinema, Samantha said that fans tend to forget the female stars after they have left cinema.
However, she said that it is her wish that when she decides to quit acting, her last film should be so memorable that no one will ever forget her.
A few days back, there were also reports about the actress taking a break from acting to have a baby. Only time will tell whether these reports turn out to be true or the actress refutes the same.
On February 1, the pre-release event of Jaanu took place at Hyderabad amid much fanfare. Speaking at the event, Samantha revealed that she had initially rejected the offer when producer Dil Raju approached her for the Telugu remake.
She said, “When Dil Raju approached me first, I outrightly rejected the film and said that I can’t do it. But, thank you Raju sir for asking me the second time. I could feel that we were creating magic every day on the set. We are recreating a classic film in Telugu. I feel that I should talk less before the release. But, I am sure I’ll take more about the film after February 7.”
