Koffee With Karan has been fermenting some fresh tittle-tattle ever since it made a comeback with a brand-new season. With a few big revelations and juicy rapid-fire rounds, Karan Johar’s chat show has been successfully keeping us glued to our screens. The third episode featured two individuals, Akshay Kumar and Samantha Ruth Prabhu as an improbable couple. One is a superstar of Bollywood, and the other one is a leading lady from the Tollywood industry. They were not paired in any movie together yet and are not going to be paired anytime soon, yet Akshay and Samantha’s chemistry stole the limelight on the show.

For Samantha, it was her big debut on the Koffee couch, and the gorgeousness left Karan Johar awestruck with her sassy replies and unapologetic personality. During the conversation, she revealed how a few words from her father forever changed her life. Not only this! The actress also shared how she handled social media trolls after parting ways with her ex-husband, Naga Chaitanya.

In the Koffee With Karan 7’s third episode, Karan Johar asked Samantha Ruth Prabhu if acting was something that always floated her boat. Answering this, the Family Man 2 actress said that she had to pick acting as her career because her family was not stable financially, and they couldn’t afford expenses for her higher studies. She further revealed that her father had refused to pay her education loans, and that incident changed her life forever. In her words:

“No, it wasn’t. I didn’t have a choice actually because things were hard at home. We didn’t have much money to study further but then I am really glad. When my father said, ‘No I can’t pay your loans,’ that changed my life.”


Further, in the interview, Samantha shared how she was mercilessly trolled after her divorce from her ex-husband, Naga Chaitanya. She added that she was not upset because the separation was her decision, and she had to obey it. She stated:

“I couldn’t really complain about it because I chose that path. I chose to be transparent and I chose to reveal a lot of my life. And when the separation happened, I couldn’t be too upset about it because they invested in my life and it was my responsibility to have answers, which I didn’t at that point of time.”

In the same conversation, when Karan asked Samantha whether the two had hard feelings for each other, the actress confessed it. She shared that they can't be in one room without hurting each other. Samantha said that they both have a lot of hard feelings for each other. She said:

"There are hard feelings like if you put the both of us in a room you have to hide sharp objects. So as of now, yes. It's not an amicable situation right now. It might be in the future."
