According to report in Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the family said, “Nagarjuna is no stranger to protests and attacks. But he won’t tolerate his children being attacked. And Sam, as he affectionately calls her, is like a daughter of the family. Nagarjuna gets very upset to see any of his children in a vulnerable situation.”
Nag, who is super protective about his daughter-in-law, Samantha, whom he considered his daughter is concerned for Sam as she is been targeted mercilessly on the social media after the trailer release for allegedly hurting Tamil sentiments for portraying an extremist with Tamil roots who has links with Pakistan.
