Actress Sayyeshaa Saigal, who performed megastar Chiranjeevi‘s iconic veena step at an awards event, says impressing the veteran meant the world to her.
It was the most memorable night of my life. I’ve grown up watching films of Chiranjeevi sir, Balakrishna sir, Venkatesh sir and Nagarjuna sir. And Chiranjeevi sir was sitting in the first row when I danced to his songs.
The zenith of my performance was the moment when I did the iconic ‘veena step’ that was immortalised by Chiranjeevi, right in front of him. It was a big moment for me and I was thrilled with the response from everyone
Sayyeshaa said in a statement. Chiranjeevi is said to have been impressed with her performance.
I was backstage after my performance and by the time I came to the venue, Chiranjeevi sir had left. But I was on cloud nine when I was told that he loved my performance. It meant the world to me.
Having made her acting debut with Telugu film Akhil last year, Sayyeshaa currently awaits the release of her Hindi debut “Shivaay”.
