That’s like, the south of the South. The thing is, I’m just about understanding my own people and my own culture and what is it that they like to watch in films. I’m still learning about how to get it right, what they want from a film, what is it that they want to see, what they expect from a character when I’m playing it… I am just about figuring that out,” she said.According to Samantha, she is still in the process of understanding the preferences of the audience down South, and will be a “complete alien” in Bollywood. “I have no idea about the world that is Bollywood.
