The film unit spoke to reporters after the inauguration of ‘Shakuntalam’. Speaking on the occasion, Samantha Akkineni said, “I have always had a little pain. I thought I couldn’t play some roles. I did all the characters like Romantic, Villain, Action. But my dream role is a periodical role, not a princess role. I still watch Disney movies if I’m free. Giving this role at such a time in my career is an unforgettable great gift.
