A single Instagram status changed the goodwill the leading lady carried from the past 2 years in South-India. Though the actress later revealed that her Instagram account was hacked, Pooja Hegde’s unflattering memes about her colleague Samantha Ruth Prabhu ended up the former in neck-deep troubles which in no time turned into a twitter trend. While the hashtag #PoojaMustApologizeSamantha is trending furiously, the internet started digging up the point where it all started.
Common fans of Pooja and Sam were left in shock while the ‘Ala Vaikuntapuram’ actress’ Insta status appeared with a picture of Samantha from the film ‘Majili’ with a tag line, “I don’t find her pretty at all.”
After a roll of outrage on social media, Pooja tweeted that her Instagram had been hacked and was in the process of being retrieved. “Please do not accept any invitations or pass out any personal information to the person asking,” she urged. It indeed worsened the situations while Samantha’s fans who didn’t seem to pacify further lashed out that it was a cheap trick to mince the situation.
Hi guys, so I’ve been informed by my team that my insta account has been hacked and my digital team is helping me with it. Please do not accept any invitations or pass out any personal information out to the person asking. Thank you.

Twitterati started the trends #PoojaMustApologizeSamantha #TeamSamnatha. A few of the fans connected the events with Sam signing a new project which was earlier rumoured to be in Pooja’s bag. Meanwhile, Samatha not only unfollowed Pooja on social media but also shared a no make-up selfie showing a peace symbol.
However, Pooja Hegde’s feed has been cleaned up now by her technical team and the most recent Instagram post is now one on pet food that she posted three days ago. In a coincidence, Pooja Hegde is waiting for the release of her film ‘Most Eligible Bachelor’ starring Akhil Akkineni, Samantha’s brother-in-law.
