There has been a recent stir in the case with the rumor that Samantha’s relationship with her stylist Preetham Jukalker was one of the reasons for their divorce. Now, the stylist reacted to the rumors and said Naga Chaitanya could have responded and put an end to the link-up rumors.
In a recent interview, Preetham Jukalker revealed that Samantha is like her sister and calls her Jiji. He said, “Everybody knows that I call Samantha ‘Jiji’ which is a north Indian term for sister. How can there possibly be a link-up between us?”
He expressed how upset he is with Naga Chaitanya’s silence and said “I’ve known Chaitanya for years. He too knows the kind of relationship that Samantha and I have. I feel that he could’ve spoken up and told people not to comment like that about Sam and me. Even if he had issued one statement, it would have made a lot of difference. Right now, it’s these so-called fans who are making these statements and spreading false rumors. I think a statement from Chaitanya’s side would’ve helped keep these people in check.”
Following these rumors, Jukalker talked about the abusive messages and death threats that he has received connected with the rumor, with them taking a toll on his mental health. He ended his statement with an affirmation that he will stand up for Samantha always.
