Her first film did not fetch her the much desired success. But at the recent SIIMA award function she became the cynosure of all eyes. Sayesha made her debut with Akhil. At the awards function she even won the best debutante award. She mesmerized the audience with her first stage performance. 

"It was my first ever stage performance and I wanted to make a strong impression. Although I'm a trained dancer, my debut film (Akhil) didn't quite give me the scope to showcase my wide range of skills. So, SIIMA was the perfect platform for me in a lot of ways," said Sayesha. She danced for a medley of eight songs, comprising two blockbuster songs each dedicated to the four actors.

For Chiranjeevi, it was Bangaru Kodipetta (Gharana Mogudu) and Dayi Dayi Damma (Indra); for Balakrishna, she chose Simhamanti Chinnode (Simha), Nandamuri Nayaka (Samarasimha Reddy); from Nagarjuna's super hit songs, Sayyeshaa danced to the tunes of Kanne Pettaro (Hello Brother) and Akkineni Akkineni (Akhil), and finally for Venkatesh, she shook a leg to the tunes of Chali Champutunna (Kshana Kshanam), Nenu Puttindhi Nee Kosame (Lakshmi).

She said that it was the most memorable moment of her life. Even the crowd went gaga over her performance. Chiranjeevi was so impressed with her performance that he inquired about Sayesha from the SIIMA team and even wanted to meet her. "I was backstage after my performance and by the time I came to the venue, Chiranjeevi sir had left. But I was on cloud nine when I was told that he loved my performance. It meant the world to me," Sayesha said. Currently the actress is busy with her Bollywood film Shivaay opposite Ajay Devgan.
