It isn’t easy to be an actress in Indian cinema where conservatism, patriarchy continue to be bottlenecks within the industry and the world outside it on a daily basis. More so, in the case of Samantha, it turned out to be uglier when many took sides in blaming her for her divorce with actor Naga Chaitanya. Many months after their official separation too, trolls continue to haunt the actress.
Earlier this week, rumours were abuzz that Naga Chaitanya was in a relationship with Sobhita Dhulipala. While the duo is yet to comment on the news, trolls believed that the news was a result of a PR campaign run by Samantha’s team. The actress decided to give it back to a portal that blamed her for all the reports surrounding Naga Chaitanya’s relationship status.
“Rumours on girl - Must be true !! Rumours on boy - Planted by girl !! Grow up guys .. Parties involved have clearly moved on .. you should move on too !! Concentrate on your work … on your families .. move on!!” She wrote in response to a site that blamed her PR team for the news. It was high time that Samantha didn’t mince words to say things as is and she did it well!
On the work front, Samantha is next awaiting the release of her multilinguals Yashoda, Kushi and Shaakuntalam. Yashoda hits theatres on August 12 while Kushi is slated to release on December 23. Director Gunasekhar hasn’t shared an update about Shaakuntalam’s release date yet. She is also part of The Family Man creators Raj-DK’s upcoming web show with Varun Dhawan.
Samantha has also signed an international film Arrangements of Love, to be helmed by BAFTA-winning filmmaker Philip John. Her romantic comedy, Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kaadhal, that released in Tamil and Telugu in April, is currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
