'Simhadri (2003) too became a mega hit and Bhumika definitely was the topper of the year. 'Missamma' (2003) saw her play an offbeat character, and won the Nandi award for best actress. However, 2004 wasn't that favorable a year, as both her films, 'Samba' and 'Na Autograph' bombed at the B.O. The latter won her the CineMAA award for best actress.
