"You know, I'm suddenly carrying this mantle of post marriage, a heroine who is actually... But, I don't know how much of credit I can actually take for it because there were films like Rangasthalam and Mahanati that I was doing even before marriage, and they happened to release post marriage and become phenomenal hits. So I can't really take the credit that it happened post marriage," the Rangasthalam actress told.

Sketching out her career plans well, Samantha, during the interview quashed the rumours of her entering into Bollywood and said she believes that she still has got the stuff to give to South cinema.
