ControversiesIn September 2013, Samantha created a stir by posting a controversial tweet on her social media account. The tweet was with respect to the first poster of Mahesh Babu's film, Nenokkadine. It read, "Saw a poster of a yet to be released Telugu film. Not only is it deeply regressive, but it's point is actually that it is deeply regressive." The tweet did not go well with the fans of Mahesh Babu and they started criticizing and dis-respecting her.
In support of Samantha, her then boyfriend, Siddharth joined the conversation and started making derogatory comments against fans, by calling them haters and terrorists.
The fans were unhappy to such an extent that as per, the hashtag #GetLostSamanthaAndSiddharth received 11,000+ tweets in just five hours.
