Successful Samantha shares her journey

She stole all the young hearts as Jessie (Ye Maaya Chesave) and as Bindu (Eega), she showed how pure love can be. As Anasuya Ramalingam (A.. Aa), she has portrayed a strong woman and as Amrutha (Raju Gari Gadhi 2) who turns a ghost, she has even scared many. And now, as Ramalakshmi, Samantha Akkineni has proved that whatever be the role, she can do it with ease. Here is what the glamorous girl talks about Rangasthalam, her successful journey, her support system and a lot more.

Do you consider Ramalaskhmi a glam or a de-glam role?

For me, she is a strong beauty. However she looked and whatever she wore, she is a beautiful person and a strong woman in a village called Rangasthalam. Ramalaskhmi’s role was completely new to me. I haven’t been to a village ever before and I didn’t know how to be her. With Sukumar sir’s training and his dedication towards his work, I’ve managed to do well in this role.

What was Chay’s reaction when he saw you as Ramalakshmi?

He was both shocked and surprised. Usually, we don’t talk about films at home after 6 pm and don’t work on Sundays. So, we don’t get much time to discuss our projects and we make sure the little amount of time we get is spent with our family. So, I never elaborated on my role to him. Whenever he used yo call me during the shoot in Rajahmundry, the only thing I told him that it was very hot there. When he saw the first look, he said, “Hey, Entidhi”.

Post marriage, what did you learn from Akkineni and Daggubati families?

I am an underachiever in that family. They are so chilled, relaxed at home and when I see them on-screen, they are amazing. Earlier, I used to tense up the night before the film’s release. But now, I am not. One thing that I am happy about learning from my husband is, Chay taught me that I should give my 100 per cent and forget about the result. I felt better after following what he said. Anyway, my family is a huge support to me. Both the families have made me feel so special that I can happily go and work for films without thinking of anything else.

Which character of Rangasthalam is your favourite?

Chitti Babu! He is my favourite. For the first time, when I was narrated the story, I was told only about my role. Until I went on to the sets, I really didn’t know how big the film was. I was sure that it would be a hit and once I watched it on screen, whoa, I was stunned with the output. Charan, has performed every small quality of a hearing impaired guy in very detail. He was amazing as an actor and also as a person.
