A throwback interview of the actress when she promoted Mahanati, has been resurfacing where she talks about her past relationship with Siddharth and how it was imperative that she gets out of it. “Even I would have fallen into such a crisis in my personal life like Savitri did. But thankfully I realised it in the beginning and walked out of the relationship as soon as I sensed that it could end up bad. And then I’m blessed to have a person like Naga Chaitanya in my life. He’s a gem of everything,” added the actress.
Sam has also talked about how she was scared of the repercussions. “I remember, the first time when I wore something revealing after marriage, I was trolled terribly and it was very, very hard. But I noticed that when I did it the second time, it was not so bad. It’s all about taking that first step. I’m not going to say that I did something brave. I was scared of the repercussions and of the trolling. But at the same, I told myself that things have to change and I’m going to do as much as I can to be a part of that change,” she said.
Samantha has a couple of films in her kitty now. While one is her next with actor Prasanna directed by Ashwin Saravanan of Game Over fame, another is with actor Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara directed by Vignesh Shivan. She also just wrapped up shooting for her first ever web-series in Bollywood, The Family Man season 2, starring Manoj Bajpai and Priyamani.
