Samantha, who enthralled the Tollywood audiences as Jessi in Ye Maya Chesave, is elated with the Nandi Special Jury Award from the AP government.

Speaking on this occasion, Samantha said that she was thankful to Gowtham Menon. “It was Gowtham Menon who gave me this opportunity and showed me beautifully on the screen. That’s why I feel like dedicating the award to him. I am also happy that Gowtham also got the Nandi for the Best Screenplay of the film. Congrats and thanks to him simultaneously,” she said.

Samantha said bagging the special jury award has enhanced her confidence. “I can certainly say I obtained more than pass marks.”

She said that she was learning Telugu fast. “I want to dub for myself. I am sure I will be doing it for my next film. At present I have no ambition in Bollywood, though I have got a couple of offers from there.”
