Popular actress, Samantha Ruth Prabhu has become a target of trolls as netizens have dug out her old Tweet, wherein she called Mahesh Babu’s film, Nenokkadine, regressive. And fast forward to today, she has a “deeply regressive" scene with Vijay Deverakonda in the lyrical video of the song, Aradhya, from her upcoming film, Kushi.

However, the particular scene from the video hasn’t gone down well with a section of netizens, who have been trolling the actress.
Talking about the poster for Mahesh Babu’s film, Nenokkadine, it showed Mahesh walking on a beach while actress, Kriti Sanon, was seen following him like a four-legged animal. Though Samantha didn't mention the name of the movie, she called it deeply regressive. And now, netizens are taking a dig at Samantha’s alleged double standards by sharing her old tweet, in which she had tweeted:
“Saw a poster of a yet to be released Telugu film. Not only is it deeply regressive, but its point is actually that it is deeply regressive.”
Reacting to Samantha's old tweet, netizens are reminding the actress of her statement and calling her out for her controversial remark. While one user penned, “Saw a poster of a #Kushi to be released Telugu film. Not only is it deeply regressive, but it’s point is actually that it is deeply regressive", another one commented, “Karma hits back." Meanwhile, a third user wrote, “In the year 2013, she commented on Nenokkadine movie poster. Now what is she doing? Karma is boomerang."
