Samantha says though hits and successes are nothing new for her, winning praises for powerful performances in films like Mahanati and Rangasthalam gives her new energy. She says the positive response from the audience breathes new life into her.
She says doing run-of-the-mill films with routine stories does not give her the kick. Doing meaningful films, where she can make a meaningful contribution, energises her, Samantha says.
She is all praise for the newage directors who are churning out wonderful stuff.
