However, recent discussions in the film industry suggest that Samantha is gradually withdrawing from Telugu cinema. According to reports, she has developed a strong preference for women-centric and pan-Indian films, broadening her horizons beyond regional projects. Samantha is looking for roles that will have a national impact and will be released in multiple languages. While she commands a high salary, Telugu filmmakers who want to cast her alongside popular stars have faced difficulties. Samantha’s hectic schedule makes it difficult for her to devote time to story narrations in some cases. 

Historically, many heroines have left the Telugu film industry to pursue opportunities in Hindi cinema. While some actresses have completely shifted their focus to Bollywood, such as Taapsee Pannu, Ileana D’Cruz, and Rakul Preet Singh, others, such as Kajal Aggarwal and Tamannaah Bhatia, have successfully maintained a strong presence in both industries.
