As Samantha made her entry on the stage to speak, she got emotional but was also very grateful for her fans and the response to the trailer. 

Samantha started the speech by asking her fans if they liked the trailer. “We have been waiting for this moment this very long time. Very soon, Shaakuntalam movie will be releasing and today trailer launch. We are very happy with your response. And today, I took so much strength that I should definitely come here. I fixed to come here for the respect and admiration towards director Gunasekhar. For some people, cinema is just a part of life but for Gunasekhar sir cinema is only his life. He takes out every cinema with his life. He took out Shaakuntalam with all his life and hard work too. I hope to see your love and appreciation after the trailer launch and that's why I came here, the actress said in her speech.”

She added, “when we hear the narration, every actor hopes it comes the best but sometimes some magic happens that goes beyond our imagination and after I watched Shaakuntalam, that's how I felt. It's so much more than what I expected. I fell at Gunasekhar's feet and said so so thank you sir. And in life how many ever struggles I may face, one thing never changes that is how much I love cinema and how much cinema loves me back. With Shaakuntalam, I believe that your love for me will increase.”
