Hello. How are you? All good? Congratulations to all the winners. Super, super proud.
I'm nobody to tell this. But thank you so much for all your hard work. And I'm so glad to be here. Thank you so much for all of you inviting me. Thank you, means a lot.
So I had one speech prepared for the gathering, but I don't know if somewhere someone had told me you have to tell your, you know, life story. Anyway.
So I don't think my life story is good enough for this gathering. So what I'm going to do is it's called SHE Empowerment. Where do I start? Okay.
So, generally, I've been called, you know, "the smiling Queen," or something they say out there, but is it too loud? should I? Is it fine? Okay. Okay.
So yeah, like I was saying, I always been called "the smiling Queen." And I, yes, of course, I always, always keep smiling.
For all the love I get for all the appreciation I get from all of you who watch my films.
But you know, one of the other reasons why I smile?
All of us, I'm pretty sure that all the girls here, smile through the sadness, through the loneliness, through the anger, through the frustration, smile is a superpower, you know. Yeah, same thing with me.
I keep doing it, and one day, I keep thinking, I'll keep smiling till that day where my smile turns into a real one from the heart.
But yes, this is a superpower. And that's why women are, I think, the most pure.
I don't know, I don't know how to say the mother is a purest being in the whole world is what they say, right?
Yeah. I'm so glad to be born a girl. I'm so glad to be born a girl in this generation.
Having such people protect us with all that they've got.
I don't know.I'm just super glad, super proud, and yeah, well. So let me just start introducing myself.
I'm Rashmika. For all those who know me a big, big Hi!
And for all those who don't well, I'm an actor in the southern industry, and I hope soon you all get to know me as well.
That's for my introduction. I don't think I should go on more on that.
Well, since I was a really small girl, I still remember all that my mother said was you should never let someone else see you angry, see you cry, see you feel any of the negative emotions because apparently, that's, that's showing your weakness, right?
That's what my mom has always told me. And I think that's one of the reasons why I just don't know what else to do now.
I actually genuinely do not know how to cry.
Do you know that? Like, I have to work so hard to actually cry on screen, I cannot do it.
And I look like an idiot when I cry on stage.
