Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s stylist, Pritam Jukalkar is reportedly receiving death threats from supporters of her estranged husband Akkineni Naga Chaitanya on YouTube as a result of a rumor about her and the Tollywood actress.
The estranged couple had requested in social media posts that they be allowed some privacy after their decision became public, but that didn’t stop Jukulkar from facing negativity from Naga Chaitanya fans.
Not only Jukalkar Samantha’s stylist, but one of his closest friends. After the high-profile couple announced their separation, rumors linking Zukalkar and Samantha, saying their alleged closeness was the reason for the split, began to spread.
Jukalkar was, in fact, being targeted by some of Chaitanya’s fans for being ‘too close’ to Samantha ever since the talk about the impending separation gathered momentum. Some YouTubers who targeted Jukalkar blamed him for sharing a “cynical” relationship with Samantha.
The young stylist also made headlines when she shared a cryptic post on “violence against women” on her Instagram stories. Every post is being seen and trolled from his social media handle.
Samantha’s fans responded to the allegation saying that Jukalkar always addresses the actress as ‘GG’ (sister), but several social media handles have been posting hate messages targeting the stylist.
To quash the rumours, Samantha had earlier taken to social media pages to put up an emotional post. She added: “They say I’ve had affairs, never wanted kids, that I’m an opportunist, and now that I’ve had an abortion.”
Samantha said aloud: “Divorce is an extremely painful process. Come on. [me be] Alone is giving me time to recover. This attack on me personally has been relentless. But I promise you this, I will never let it happen or whatever they say, break me.”
