Expressing her gratitude, Kamakshi Bhaskarla said she wanted to thank the Polimera 2 team for the opportunity, and also the audience for appreciating her performance

“I am thrilled to know that my performance in Polimera 2 has been recognised. I wanted to thank the jury for the award, which will now make me more responsible. I thank my guru Rathna Shekar garu from Samahaara Theatre and acting coach Neeraj Kabi sir on this occasion. I thank the audience for showing their love and affection. I dedicate this award to everyone who supported me,” said Kamakshi.
