The actress opened up about her separation from ex-husband Naga Chaitanya and also reacted to the reports that she had asked for Rs 250 crore alimony from him. For the unversed, Sam parted ways with Chay in October last year after four years of marriage. She also revealed that after their divorce, both of them do have hard feelings for each other.
Reports of Samantha asking Rs 250 cr alimony
Karan Johar asked Samantha about her life after separating from her Naga Chaitanya. During one of the segments, 'The Family Man' actress called the reports that suggested she took an alimony of Rs 250 crores from her ex-hubsand Naga Chaitanya 'made up'.
The 'Oo Antaa' dancer was asked about the worst rumour she heard about herself?, to which Samantha replied, "Should I start alphabetically?" She further went on to say, "That I took 250 crores in alimony. Every morning I woke up waiting for income tax officials to show them there's nothing. First, they made up the story about alimony. Then they realised it doesn't seem like a believable story. Then they said there's a pre-nup, so she can't ask for alimony."
Besides this, she also shared that life has been hard after she and Naga Chaitanya separated. "It has been hard. But it’s good now. It’s fine. I am stronger than I have ever been," she said.

When you and your ex-husband part ways. Did you feel a lot of trolling was a result of you putting yourself out there?” Samantha replied, “Yes, I can't complain about it because I chose that path to be transparent and when the separation happened I couldn't be too upset about it because they invested in my life. I didn't had answers at that time.” ALSO READ: Koffee With Karan 7: Samantha Ruth Prabhu corrects KJo when he calls Naga Chaitanya her 'husband'
