In an unusual turn of events, south siren Samantha Ruth Prabhu has chopped off her wedding gown and turned it into a cocktail dress for an award show. The white-coloured gown covered in beading and floral appliqué, which she wore during her wedding with Telugu heartthrob and her ex-husband Naga Chaitanya, has now been turned into a black cocktail dress.

Samantha stunned fans when she graced an award show in the new outfit. Taking to Instagram, Samantha shared a long post about her decision to change her wedding outfit and wrote, “There are always new memories to be made. There are always new paths to walk. There are always new stories to tell. Beauty is forever. And it can take on a new form every day.”

Samantha further added, “The dress I am wearing today is a beloved gown that has been repurposed for this occasion by the most talented @kreshabajajofficial. While that might sound insignificant… entitled even…to many… I assure you that repurposing my old clothes is only one of many steps I am consciously taking to alter my habits and make my lifestyle more sustainable. And every little gesture, every little decisive action, is important. It all adds up. I urge myself and all of you that have goodwill for me in your hearts to make those little efforts. Thank you.”

As expected, a few fans weren’t too happy with Samantha’s idea of changing her wedding gown while others applauded her for moving on in life and taking new decisions to make her life better.

“The 1980’s called. They want their swagger back,” commented a fan.

Another fan wrote, “In a world she can be anything, she choose to be herself. Pride on her face, guts in her heart. Nothing much just serving similar Desi Marilyn Monroe energy 🙏🏽🖤🔥”

“Your magical Women @samantharuthprabhuoffl I'm falling for you when u where black 🖤 And congratulations My girl 😙❣️,” commented a third user.
