Samantha Ruth Prabhu has invited intense backlash and she became a target of trolls as netizens have dug out her old tweets wherein she called Mahesh Babu’s film, Nenokkadine, regressive. Today, she has a ‘deeply regressive’ scene with Vijay Deverakonda in the lyrical video of the song, Aradhya, from her upcoming film, Kushi.
The poster in question featured Samantha’s co-star, Vijay, touching her hand with his leg as an intimate gesture. Although, the scene from the video hasn’t gone down well with a section of netizens, who have been trolling the actress.
Speaking of Mahesh Babu’s film, Nenokkadine, showed Mahesh walking on a beach while actress, Kriti Sanon was seen following him like a four-legged animal. However, Samantha didn’t mention the name of the film.
Instead, she called it deeply regressive and now, netizens are taking a dig at Samantha’s alleged double standards by sharing her old tweet in 2013, in which she had tweeted: “Saw a poster of a yet to be released Telugu film. Not only is it deeply regressive, but its point is actually that it is deeply regressive.”
Netizens reminded the actress of her statement and called her out for her alleged hypocritical and controversial remark. Reacting to the actress’ old tweet one user wrote, “Saw a poster of a #Kushi to be released Telugu film. Not only is it deeply regressive, but it’s point is actually that it is deeply regressive", another one commented, “Karma hits back."
Meanwhile, a third user wrote, “In the year 2013, she commented on Nenokkadine movie poster. Now what is she doing? Karma is boomerang."
On the professional front, Samantha Ruth Prabhu recently confirmed her break acting to take care of her health. Taking to her Instagram handle on July 13, 2023, Samantha shared a picture of herself with the filmmaker duo, Raj and DK, as well as screenwriter, Sita Menon.
She also captioned the picture talking about her hiatus from acting. Expressing her views about the same, she added that taking a break doesn’t seem like a bad thing at all.
