Actor Sampoornesh Babu, who made his acting debut with Hrudaya Kaleyam, has scored a blockbuster with his Telugu spoof-comedy. His first movie has proved that you do not need good looks to be successful in showbiz. The film, which released on April 4, has been praised by critics and audiences alike for providing wholesome entertainment. He says confidence and talent is sufficient for success.
Talking to IANS, Sampoornesh Babu gushed about the success of Hrudaya Kaleyam. He said, "I think 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. I also feel talent is equally important and when you have both, I feel nothing can stop you."
Although mocked at for his looks, Sampoo, as he's fondly called by fans, doesn't pay heed to criticism. Sampoornesh Babu added, "When I'm not worried about my own looks, why should I care about what others have to say? A true entertainer should only be concerned about entertaining his fans. I believe I'm a true entertainer."
Hrudaya Kaleyam, which has been directed by debutant director Steven Shankar, has collected over Rs 5 crore at the worldwide Box Office in the first week. Sampoornesh is already getting ready with his next project titled Kobbari Matta. He said, "I play three roles in the film and there will be seven heroines. It will be packed with a lot of humour. I'll continue doing different films but I want to make sure that all my films entertain audiences."
