Power Star Pawan Kalyan romanced Samantha in Attarintiki Daredi under the direction of Trivikram Srinivas. The film despite getting leaked online even before its release, had turned out to be a blockbuster.
Interim, Samantha revealed that Pawan Kalyan's shyness surprised her. She said, “Everyone hail Pawan Kalyan as Power Star. However he is very shy in real life. He turns shy and due to this he couldn't even dance in front of a huge crowd. We went to Switzerland as a part of shooting for Attarintiki Daaredi. While shooting for a song, I couldn't control my laughter with his shyness."
Samantha continued saying, "While shooting for a song, many people came to watch and Pawan refused to shoot and went to his caravan saying he couldn't dance in front of so many people."
Samantha further said, "When I saw Pawan refusing and Trivikram convincing and trying to motivate saying 'come on, you can do', Pawan expressing surprise 'Is that so, really can I dance". I wondered how such a simpleton is getting worshipped as Power Star."
