I am learning to say never say never. The appreciation I received was more than what I had expected. I feel I have the confidence to accept newer challenges now.”

Sharing why she kept a distance from Bollywood for so long, Samantha said that she was finding her footing in the South and gained confidence in her work only in the last two years. “I was still making bad choices and not doing the kind of work that satisfied me. Things changed a great deal in the last two years, and now, I am confident about accepting challenges. I don’t try everything and then see what works. I usually take time to perfect something before moving on to another challenge. That’s why it has taken me this long to get this far,” she further added.
