Samantha Ruth Prabhu, in a conversation with Miss Malini, revealed she was offered Oo Antavana song from Pushpa in the middle of the separation with Naga Chaitanya. She was advised by her family and friends to do an item song during such a delicate stage but she challenged herself and did it which later resulted in a hit. Talking about her divorce, Samantha 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. I loved the lyrics of the song. I loved how the character was positioned. For me, it was just another character I was playing.” Also Read – Samantha Ruth Prabhu to Karisma Kapoor: Actresses who deserve loving partners after their bitter separation
