She is more prolific in the 1996-2002 period and thus missed most of the best chances to earn as an actress in this century.

She faced the camera after a long lapse of time. Saakshi had two bitter experiences in her first innings. One: Mohan Babu manhandled her for reporting late to shooting. Two: She was cheated by a land encroacher in a real estate deal.
