Hyderabad: If there is one phrase that stands true in Samantha Akkineni’s case right now, it is “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. The South Indian actor is trending on Twitter for the second time this week, after she was harshly criticised a few days ago for her appearance in the Amazon series Family Man 2. #ShameonyouSamantha was trending on Twitter soon after the trailer of the series came out. The controversy was about the depiction of Tamil people and culture in the series.
Within a week, #proudofyouSamantha was trending and she was being appreciated for her performance in the same series which earlier brought her flak. Many fans wrote on twitter that Samantha nailed it in the second season of the series. The actor is essaying the role of Raji, a Tamil rebel fighter from Sri Lanka on a mission in India.
The same Tamil audience who were crying foul over Samantha’s character last week is now celebrating the firebrand dialogues of hers in the series. Short video and meme of the actor’s dialogue “I will protect the Tamil race. I am the weapon my motherland gave birth to,” is going viral on social media. Many took to Twitter saying that her performance is giving them goosebumps.
