In the video that immediately went viral, Samantha voiced her support for candidate Satya Prasad from Telugu Desam Party (TDP). Some people wondered why the Majili actress shares her political views online, while others think that she is opposing her father-in-law Akkineni Nagarjuna. We all know that Akkineni openly supports YSR Congress, and Samantha's personal opinion might affect their relationship.

Fans are worried about Samantha, warning that her career would be at risk if she became heavily involved in politics. They want to find out the reason why the actress decides to support TDP. A user even tweeted to her: “Satya Prasad ki Samantha ki relation enti bhayyaa? Family friend?”

In response to this question, the actress confirmed that Satya Prasad is indeed her family friend.

Despite Samantha's honest response to the matter, her fans could not take this gesture kindly. Some reminded her that it was naive to ask people to vote for a certain candidate just because they are personally related to the actress.

On the work front, Samantha Akkineni is currently basking in the success of her latest movie Majili. Directed by Shiva Nirvana, the movie has her husband Naga Chaitanya playing the lead role. In addition, her previous project Super Deluxe also performed well at the box office.
