Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who recently filed defamation lawsuits against various Youtube channels and individuals for spreading rumours about her personal life in connection with her divorce from spouse Naga Chaitanya, has got harsh criticism from a Hyderabad court.


Samantha might seek an apology from the owners of the concerned Youtube channels, persons, and media outlets rather than bringing defamation lawsuits, according to the Kukatpally court in Hyderabad, where she filed the claim.

According to Mirchi9 report, the court stated that celebrities divulge details about their personal life in the public realm and subsequently bring defamation suits. Samantha’s lawyer, Murali, made the remarks after requesting that the actress’s case be heard urgently in court.

The additional district judge, who appeared irritated by the lawyer’s request, stated categorically that the plea will be heard at the appropriate time. “Everyone is equal before the law in court. There is no distinction between those who are lofty and those who are low.”

Samantha has sued Suman TV, Telugu Popular TV, and attorney Dr CL Venkatrao, alleging that they were “streaming malignant content about her.”


Samantha and Naga Chaitanya confirmed their split via a joint social media post earlier this month. Both of them stated that they will remain close friends and begged fans and the media to respect their privacy during these trying times.

As media publications speculated on many aspects of her personal life, the 34-year-old actress was quickly held responsible for the divorce. Samantha, according to some Youtube channels and social media sources, did not want children and even had an abortion.
