Samantha boasts a huge fan base and recently hit 10 million followers on Instagram. So, naturally, all hell broke loose when Bollywood actress Pooja Hedge shared Samantha's photo on her story saying, 'I don't find her pretty at all'.
Following the story, Samantha's fans demanded an apology from Pooja Hedge and began attacking the actress on social media. But the actress has confirmed her account has been hacked and her technical team worked hard to get the account restored:
Spent the last hour stressing about the safety of my Instagram account. Thanking my technical team for instant help at this hour. Finally, got my hands back on my Instagram ? Any message, follow back or post in d past hour from my account has been done will be undone. Ty.— Pooja Hegde (@hegdepooja) May 27, 2020
She also assured that any damage done during the hack will be undone. However, Samantha's fans believe that it was a ploy to control the situation.
On the other hand, Pooja's supporters backed her up with screenshots on the alleged mean comments about the hacking between Samantha, Nandini Reddy, and Chinmayi Sripada. Take a look at the screenshots here:

It's unclear whether Pooja and Samantha had any issues in the past, but Pooja will be seen in 'Most Eligible Bachelor' with Samantha's brother-in-law Akhil Akkineni.
