What is Sampoo’s secret to success? -

By now, it is certain that Sampoo doesn’t have the looks nor the backing of any industry bigwig to survive in Telugu filmdom. First-time actor Sampoornesh Babu, who has scored a blockbuster with his Telugu spoof-comedy “Hrudaya Kaleyam”, has proved that you don’t need looks to be successful in showbiz as he strongly believes confidence and talent is sufficient.

He believes looks don’t matter anymore because audiences want to be entertained. I have always believed in my confidence and that’s what has helped me today. He also feels talent is equally important, and when you have both, there’s nothing that can stop anyone. Although mocked at for his looks, Sampoo, as he’s fondly called by fans, doesn’t heed to criticism. Sampoo says when he’s not worried about his own looks, why should he care what others have to say? A true entertainer should only be concerned about entertaining his fans and he truly believes he’s a true entertainer.

“Hrudaya Kaleyam”, which has been directed by debutant director Steven Shankar, has minted over Rs 5 crore in the first week worldwide. Sampoornesh is already getting ready with his next project titled “Kobbari Matta”, in which he plays three roles.
