Tollywood heroine Samantha has met AP CM Chandrababu Naidu and handed over a cheque of Rs. 10 lakh for the relief of Hudhud victims. She said that Hudhud Cyclone that hit Visakhapatnam and North coastal Andhra Pradesh had really saddened her. As may be recalled, many Tollywood heroes and heroines have donated funds to help the cyclone victims. A grand program is also planned for Nov 30 wherein the Tollywood fraternity is organizing a series of events as part of 'Memu Saitham'to help the victims.
