In a recent, Arjun Reddy’s director Sandeep Reddy Vanga made an extremely sexist comment about true love. He stated, “It is no true love if lovers cannot slap and use cuss words against one another.” This toxic statement was condemned by a lot of actresses in the industry including Parvathy TK and Samantha Akkineni. Samantha stated that is extremely disturbing to watch this video.
But trollers are always awaiting to make a situation hostile. Here’s what one of her followers tweeted:
Double standards of #SamanthaRuthPrabhu

Singer Chinmayi also became the target for the very same but she stood there strongly holding Samantha’s back.
However, looks like Sam doesn’t require anyone to kick one’s back. Her response to this tweet just won her more fans.
Liking the film .. and disagreeing with a comment are two different things . I loved the story of one ‘Arjun Reddy’ .. not the generalisation that love means having the liberty of slapping people around . https://t.co/rLWG7L4Gbt

Samantha Akkineni is currently riding high on the success of Oh Baby and is being lauded by the Tollywood film industry for her versatility and talent. From Allu Arjun and Rakul Preet to Rana Daggubati and Naga chaitanya, actors are praising her for her fascinating growth and demeanor.
Her film has already grossed 17 crores worldwide. Clearly a woman of clarity and compassion.
