Sammi also took the opportunity to thank the production crew and made a tribute to her family, “This award is due to your joint efforts and dedication. My father likes art a lot and I seem to have fulfilled his dream. I want to say to people who have dreams, remember this image of me. Dreams are for people who never give up.”
