Samantha Ruth Prabhu shares a beautiful video for her friends who helped her in her difficult time

Recently, Samantha Ruth Prabhu took to her IG stories and shared a beautiful video about the importance of reaching out to your loved ones.  In the video, American author and motivational speaker, Simon Sinek, talked about the '8 minutes theory' and how it can help someone who is struggling in their life. Samantha also tagged her best friends, Rahul Ravindran, Himank, Nandini Reddy and Meghna Vinod, on it and wrote, 

“I love you more than you’ll ever know (white heart emojis)."

Samantha Ruth Prabhu shares Simon Sinek's '8 minutes theory' 

Sinek explained the theory in the video and shared that his friend, Maria was going through a very hard time, but he only got to know about it when he went for dinner at her home. He mentioned that though he wanted to be sympathetic, he was really pissed off that Maria didn’t call him. So, he got angry at her and bashed her for not telling him what she was going through. In Sinek's words:

“I have a dear, dear friend who is going through a very hard time, my friend Maria. I went to her house for dinner and she was telling me about this awful time she went through. And I wanted to be sympathetic, but at the same time, I was really pissed off that she didn’t call me. And I was like, ‘What the hell? I’m here, I love you, I support you. You’re always there for me. Why wouldn’t you let me there for you? How selfish are you?’."


Further in the video, Sinek mentioned that Maria told him that she had texted him a lot of times, but he failed to realise that it was a cry for help. She told him that she had read somewhere that when somebody’s struggling, they need 8 minutes of help or support from a friend to get them back on track. Speaking about the same, Sinek said:

"She says to me, ‘I did reach out to you a number of times.’ And I look at my phone, like the text, where she goes, ‘Want to come over?’ I’m like, ‘How the hell do I know that it’s a cry for help versus every other time you ask me over which sounds exactly the same?’ So she read an article that said when somebody’s struggling all they need is 8 minutes of help or support from a friend to get them back on track. So we came up with a code. We write to each other, ‘Do you have 8 minutes?’ It means I need you. And anybody can step out of their meeting for 8 minutes to be there for a friend.”

When Samantha Ruth Prabhu confirmed having hard feelings for Naga Chaitanya

It was in 2021 when rumours started cropping in Samantha and Naga Chaitanya's life as the duo was having troubles in their marriage. And finally, four days before their fourth wedding anniversary, Samantha and Chaitanya released an official statement about ending their marriage, leaving their massive fanbase shattered. When Samantha appeared in one of the episodes of Koffee With Karan 7, the host, Karan Johar, asked her whether she and her ex-husband, Naga Chaitanya, had hard feelings for each other. The actress confirmed it and 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."


Samantha Ruth Prabhu on hitting her all-time low after her failed marriage

Earlier, in an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Samantha Ruth Prabhu opened up about her failed marriage with Naga Chaitanya for the first time and revealed how it impacted her. The actress revealed that soon after her and Naga's separation, her health deteriorated, and her work was immensely affected. Reflecting on the difficult times she went through in the last two years, Samantha said:

"When I hit an all-time low of, well, a failed marriage, and my health and work were getting affected, it was like a triple whammy; boom, boom, boom. You know, people go down for far less than what I endured for the last two years or so. During that time, I read about actors who have gone through health issues and made a comeback, or suffered trolling or anxiety. And reading their stories helped me. It gave me strength to know that if they did it, I can, too."
