It’s no surprise that Samantha Akkineni has millions of followers on Twitter and Instagram. The gorgeous actress with many successful films to her credit is also quite active on social media. And she’s not afraid of taking on trolls who post rude or unnecessary comments on her pictures.
Recently, however, she gave one of her fans a pleasant shock. When twitter-user @ArunTheDevil made a declaration of his unwavering love for the actress, saying, “1000's of mentions to you and still no reply yet. But my love for you not even less for a 0.000000001. Love you @Samanthaprabhu2 (sic)”, he probably expected his message to disappear into obscurity, like all the others. But to his surprise, he received “Thankyou Arun *hug-face emoji*” in reply from the actress.
We can only imagine what his reaction would’ve been! We suspect there was some speechlessness followed by a lot of “Oh my God!” involved.
Arun's interaction with Samantha has found itself some permanent real-estate on the internet. He’s pinned the tweets to the top of his profile, captioning it “Dei naan jaichutten” (I have won) followed by half a dozen smiling emojis. Years later, we’ll probably still find it there. It’s interesting times we live in....
