The actress said, “It’s ok if you are having a bad day, vocalise it, understand it, as soon as you accept that you’re going through something half the work is done. It’s when we don’t want to accept it and we are fighting it it’s a never-ending battle. But when you accept when you vocalise ‘this is my issue, so what now? I still have to live my life’.”
Specifically speaking about her separation with Naga Chaitanya, Samantha revealed, “ 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”.
