Elated with the response to her Bigg Boss episode, on Thursday, Samantha took to Instagram to thank the audience for making it a grand success. She also thanked Nagarjuna for his encouragement.
Sharing a photo of herself from the episode, Samantha Akkineni wrote, “An experience to remember.. Never thought I’d be on the Big Boss stage as host! Only because I was given this responsibility by my Mamagaru.. I could find the strength to overcome my fears… the fear that I had no experience hosting, the fear of Telugu.. I had never even watched an episode before.. Thankyou mama for helping me overcome my fears and trusting me with this.. And I really need to thank all of you for all the love I received after the episode.. I was jumping with joy. And GK Mohan garu for handholding me through a very demanding Maha episode of #bigbossseason4.”
On the work front, Samantha will be next seen in season 2 of Amazon Prime Video’s The Family Man.
