Samantha’s headstrong attitude and her dignified silence in dealing with difficult times is an inspiration to many. At a recent event, the actress spoke about normalising one’s low points in life and asking for help from therapists and friends. She also talked about how counsellors and her friends helped her when she was going through a tough time in her life. Samantha is going through a divorce. She announced her separation from Naga Chaitanya in October 2021.
Samantha was last seen in the sexy Oo Antava song from Allu Arjun’s Pushpa: The Rise. The actress revealed that being sexy is next level hard work. The song, composed by Devi Sri Prasad, claims that all men are lustful.
On January 9, Samantha attended an event and spoke about dealing with mental health issues. She said that it is high time that everyone normalises their lows and seeks help from friends and counsellors when they are going through tough times.
She said, “There should be no inhibitions about seeking help when you are mentally disturbed. In my case, I was able to overcome my mental health issues only with the help of my counsellors and friends.
It’s high time we normalise our lows and seek help when in need. Like how we go to a doctor for physical injuries, we also should consult doctors if our heart gets hurt.”
Talking about her life, Samantha said, “If I am successful for the next part of my life, it is not because I was strong. But it is because many people around me helped me to be strong. A lot of people are spending a lot of time and effort to help. It’s time for all of us to do our bit as well.”
On October 2, Samantha and Naga Chaitanya announced that they are separated as wife and husband. In an interview, the actress thought she would crumble and die when she parted ways.
She told Filmfare, “I still have to live my life. I know I’m still going to live my life and with all the issues that I now faced in my personal life, I was surprised at how strong I was. I thought I was a much weaker person. I thought that with my separation, I would crumble and die. I didn’t think I was capable of being this strong…Today I’m very very proud of how strong I’m because I really didn’t know I was.”
Samantha and Naga Chaitanya have filed for divorce by mutual consent. The legal proceedings are underway.
