We started the conversation asking her movie 'Black Butterfly' and acting experience with senior artists. "Ya, I do remember the great days that I enjoyed in the sets of 'Black Butterfly'. As most of the lead actors were youngsters were really had great fun. Being the 'baby', I was given much care by co stars Midhun, Niraj and Malavika Nair.
Seniors like Manianpillai Raju sir (producer), Azhakappan sir (cinematographer) and Ranjith sir (director M Ranjith) was too supportive which gave me comfort to work with full freshness till the last day of the shooting. The movie was an interesting tale on young love, trust and betrayal. Even though Black Butterfly was released along with few other big budget movies, it could garner positive reviews." says Samskruthy.
We enquired about her feel while seeing her on big screen for the first time. "Oh! The movie was released during the time of my exams. I saw the movie a week later along with my family. During the time, I received good response for my acting from my friends, relatives and well wishers. I am fortunate to work in three different languages at this younger age." chuckles Sam.
During the talk, we were anxious to know about her telugu and tamil projects. "I do like to learn new languages as a pass time, so enjoy doing movies in other languages.
