Speaking about the extensive Media coverage about his and Samantha’s separation, the ThankYou actor said, “We both came out and put our statements and we both have immense respect for each other. I always look up to what she is doing. And there will always be great respect for her. That’s about it. We said what we have too. Beyond that, it’s just people trying to fill up columns and there’s nothing else. I mean I’m bored of it. I have been through three releases and I’m still attached to it.”
Now, Samantha’s father Joseph Prabhu shared a series of Facebook photos of the two and penned an emotional note.”LONG LONG AGO; THERE WAS A STORY; AND IT DOESN’T EXIST ANYMORE !!! SO, LET’S START A NEW STORY; AND A NEW CHAPTER !!!”He also wrote in the comment section of his post, “THANKS FOR ALL YOUR FEELINGS. YES, I SAT DOWN FOR A LONG TIME TO OVERCOME THE EMOTIONS. LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO SIT DOWN WITH FEELINGS & GET BOGGED DOWN.”
