While expressing her views on winning the national award, Savaniee Ravindrra tells us,
I am speechless, and it is hard for me to describe how happy I'm, I feel like my hard work and dedication has finally paid off thank you, God. My mentor, My Parents played a very important role in this journey. Now after winning this award I have more responsibility, I have to constantly try being better and try to give out the best of myself and I will make sure people will love my work.- Savaniee Ravindrra
Savaniee further adds,
This award is the most special one as I have received nominations in various places till date but I didn't get the award. For the song that I have sung in the past, I was waiting for an award, and that moment came, for the first time in my life I got a 'National Award'. So this award is very special to me. I will always be indebted to God, the audience, and all my gurus.- Savaniee Ravindrra
