The actress has a reputation for not tolerating nonsense and giving it back to the trolls in her own style, See how!Samantha Ruth Prabhu, the name needs no introduction. Her first on-screen appearance refuses to escape our memory even after a decade — dressed in a sky blue sari, her wavy hair bouncing, the slow motion walk, AR Rahman’s magical background score — the scene looks straight out of a fairytale, whose appeal transcends the screen. From not being able to speak a single word in Telugu in her debut film Ye Maaya Chesave, to solely headlining films and ruling the industry, the actress has come a long way.In a career spanning over 13 years, the self-made star went on to work with several top directors and actors, including SS Rajamouli, Trivikram Srinivas, Sukumar, Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan, NTR, Ram Charan, and Allu Arjun, to name a few. Her stardom, over the years, has been the result of sheer hard work and perseverance, and her journey has been anything but easy. The Lady Superstar took her career a notch higher by taking up more challenging roles, where she is defying the stereotypes and redefining female lead characters. The actress is bold not just in the choice of her work but also in the way she chooses to live her life. She has got a reputation for not tolerating nonsense and giving it back to the trolls in her own style. Let’s have a look at the six incidents when she shut down the trolls with her classy and witty replies. 1. When a fake empath stated that she has "Lost All Her Charm And Glow" Months after she revealed about her myositis condition, the actress made a rare public appearance and attended the trailer launch event of her upcoming mythological love drama Shaakuntalam. Donning an off-white saree, she looked elegant as usual and one couldn't take their eyes off from her resilience. While fans rejoiced over her media interaction, a social media handle decided to make a not-so-nice comment about the way she looked.A verified Twitter handle shared the Yashoda actress’ picture with an insensitive caption which read: “Feeling sad for Samantha. She has lost all her charm and glow. When everyone thought she came out of her divorce strongly and her professional life is seeing heights, myositis hit her badly, making her weak again (sic).” Samantha didn't stay silent, her graceful reply was enough to smackdown the troll. Reacting to the tweet, she wrote: "I pray you never have to go through months of treatment and medication like I did... And here’s some love from me to add to your glow." 2. When she shut down a chauvinist who said, "Women Rise To Fall Again"Recently, a fan shared a picture of the banners of four female-led films, hung outside a theatre, and tweeted “Passing by the Vettri theatre in Chromepet (in Chennai), my sister and I realised it had the banners of all the movies with a woman lead. What a long way Tamil cinema has come! 10 years back this would have been unimaginable." The posters in the picture were of Connect, starring Nayanthara, Trisha’s ‘Raangi’, and Driver Jamuna starring Aishwarya Rajesh.Retweeting the uplifting post, the actress added heart hands emojis and wrote, “Women Rising!!”. However, a chauvinist responded to her tweet saying, "Yes.just to fall." It's not the sexist comment that caught everyone's attention, but Samantha’s epic reply that read - “Getting back up makes it all the more sweeter, my friend.” 3. When she handed it back to an insensitive person who said “She’ll Die Lonely”All her fans know Samantha is extremely close to her pet dogs Sasha and Hash, and often shares paww-dorable pictures of them. Once she shared a picture with her pet and captioned it: “Early rising and loving...Missed this,” but her post met with an insensitive comment which read, “She's gonna end up dying alone with cats & dogs". The poise of ‘The Family Man’ actress cannot be missed in her reply that said, “I would consider myself Lucky.” 4. When she was judged for her bold fashion choicesIn the past few years, Samantha groomed herself to become a fashionista and has constantly upgraded her sense of style. In March 2022, Samantha shared a scintillating picture of her on social media, wherein she donned a flowy, emerald green floor-length gown with a plunging neckline. The actress made a stunning appearance in the gown for an award show in Mumbai. Sharing the picture, she wrote, “One of my most favourite looks.” But you know! It did not go down well with some netizens who schooled and judged her for her choice of clothing. Samantha didn't keep quiet and slammed the trolls and cynics in a lengthy note. She wrote, "As a woman, I bear firsthand knowledge of what it means to be judged. We judge women based on what they wear, their race, education, social standing, appearance, skin tone and the list goes on and on. Making snap judgements about a person simply based on the clothes they wear is quite literally the easiest thing one can do. Now that we're in the year 2023 - can we finally stop judging a woman based on the hemlines and necklines she adorns and focus instead on bettering ourselves? Turning that judgement inward and training it on one's own self is evolution. Projecting our ideals on someone else never did anyone any good. Let's gently rewrite the way we measure and understand a person." 5. When she broke her silence on being falsely targeted for spreading rumours about her ex-husband Naga ChaitanyaShe stood up for herself once again and called out an entertainment portal for a false report that was titled "Chay fans lash out at Sam's PR team" (which now stands deleted), and claimed that Samantha is planting rumours and negative stories about her ex-partner Chaitanya. The actress put out a strong message asking people who write such reports, to "grow up."Taking to social media, she addressed the misleading reports and wrote, "Rumours on girl - Must be true!! Rumours on boy - Planted by a girl!! Grow up guys.. Parties involved have clearly moved on.. you should move on too!! Concentrate on your work… on your families.. move on!!" 6. When she called out a netizen who called her a “Divorced, Ruined Second Hand Item”A lot has been said and written about the actress ever since she parted ways with her estranged husband, Naga Chaitanya, after four years of marital bliss. While the exact reason behind the split remains to be unknown, Samantha has suffered and is still bearing the brunt of online hate for the choices she made in her personal life. However, the actress had only love for the netizen who made a nasty comment about her divorce. When the user tweeted “@Samanthaprabhu2 is a divorced ruined second-hand item, who has 50 crores tax-free money robbed from a gentleman!,” Samantha gave a simple yet powerful reply - “God bless your soul.” Not just these, the actress was even trolled for a kissing scene with Ram Charan in the 2018 blockbuster film Rangasthalam, post her wedding with Naga Chaitanya. In an interview with Deccan Chronicle, Samantha condemned the double standards and patriarchy and said, “I know people were abusing [me] as to how I can do such scenes after my marriage. If married [male] superstars do the same, will they ask such questions? Why me — because I am a woman? Moreover, my family is supportive, especially my father-in-law who pooh-poohed the detractors and hence I am working comfortably on the sets.”Becoming a “Lady Superstar” and building a lasting identity in the largely male-dominated space is no cakewalk and Samantha's journey so far is nothing but inspiring. She deserves more than hatred, more than trolling, and more than insensitivity.
