In a recent interview, the actress revealed that she was affected by the trolls early in her career.

She said: “Trolling did affect me initially to the extent that I was questioning whether I was going insane. Because I would wake up, and the first thing I would check for trolls and it was affecting my mental stability and making me rush to take wrong decisions.”

Now, she has reached a point where she doesn’t care about the trolls and tries to play along with the trolls.

“I didn’t respond to that for any sort of annoyance, it was just that I was playing along,” she said.

For the uninitiated, Samantha had reacted to the speculation around her pregnancy and tweeted, “, “Damnnn ……. is she ? When you find out please let us know.”

Samantha also said that she’s now understood that the trolls will continue to do what they are best at even if she doesn’t post a new photograph or tweets something new. She also said that she doesn’t give too many thoughts before posting stuff on social media adding that she doesn’t even disable her comments now even if people post distasteful content.
