When Karan Johar asked Samantha, “Do you guys have hard feelings?” Samantha replied, “There are hard feelings like if you put the both of us in a room you have to hide sharp objects. So as of now, yes.” She also said, “It’s not an amicable situation right now. It might be in the future.”
Karan Johar asked, “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.”
