Actor Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s divorce from her actor husband Naga Chaitanya came as a shock for everyone. Samantha and Chaitanya were one of the cutest couples in the South. Post announcing their separation, fans were heartbroken.
After this, she also announced her unique dance number in Allu Arjun starrer Pushpa. However, we recently learned that the song Oo Antava was offered to her when she was in the middle of a separation.
Samantha on separation and family’s reaction:
During an interview with Miss Malini, the Yashoda actor said, “When I was offered ‘O Antava’, it was in the middle of the separation (from Naga). After the announcement came, every well-wisher and every family member was like ‘You will sit at home, you will not do an item song just when you have announced the separation’. Even my friends, who always encouraged me to challenge myself, told me, ‘Do not do an item song’. But I was like, ‘Ok, I am doing it.’”
Samantha on her marriage:
The Family Man 2 actor further said, “I just thought, ‘why should I hide?’ I did not do anything wrong. I was not going to wait for all of the trolling, abuse and hate to go away and slowly creep back in like someone who committed a crime. I was not going to do that. I gave my marriage 100%, it did not work out. But I was not going to beat myself up and feel guilty for something I didn’t do.”
Samantha on bagging the Pushpa song:
Samantha Ruth Prabhu revealed how the song happened to her, “I loved the lyrics of the song and I loved how it was positioned. I had not done an item song and I love exploring different characters. I looked at the song just as another character and not as an item number. It just came from a place of me doing something new and nothing else.”
The 35-year-old actor is now gearing up for the release of her upcoming movie, Shakuntalam which is slated to release on April 14.
