Sharing anecdotes about her struggles before becoming a renowned actor, Samantha, in a motivational speech at Sathyabama University, urged students to dream.

“When I was studying my mom and dad told me to study hard and you will make it big. I studied hard. I topped 10th standard, 12th standard, and college. But then, when I wanted to study further, my parents could not afford it. I had no dreams, no future, nothing,” she said.
