Samantha Akkineni is one of the busiest actresses down south. The actress completed 11 years in the industry recently and she is thankful to all her fans for showering her with love and blessings.
She made her acting debut with Gautham Vasudev Menon's Ye Maya Chesave and it's been 11 years since the release of the film. From a shy girl next door to a bold successful woman, Samantha has played all kinds of roles that helped her prove her mettle.
Talking to a news agency, the actress said relentless hard work is the secret behind her longevity as an actress.
Samantha believes that there is no substitute for hard work. The actress said the words might sound a cliché, but this is a reality. "The moment you get comfortable, you're going to lose it for sure. So I've always approached every day as my first day at work. I go with the same energy and the desire to learn something new. I think that's what has kept me going for all of these years. It helped me get better as an actress and entertain audiences for all these years," she said.
Samantha started her career just like any other actress, by playing contemporary roles. But soon, she started choosing her roles carefully. She started playing author-backed roles and has used her stardom to making decisions that have had a positive impact on many women in society and the industry as well.
The actor is currently awaiting the release of The Family Man 2, which marks her debut on the digital platform. She has Kaathu Vakula Rendu Kaathal also in her kitty. It is a Tamil film starring Vijay Sethupathi and Nayantara.
