Fans would still remember when how a single tweet from Samantha on Mahesh Babu poster created a huge controversy and made #GetLostSamantha&Siddharth trend in Twitter.
Now director Sekhar Kammula best known for his Happy Days movie and also the director of Kahaani remake with Nayanthara voiced in his support for Samantha in his official Facebook Page.
"Just saw the poster of 1 Nenokkadine and read what Samantha tweeted.......I share the same views....it is regressive, no doubt about it...but what is shocking is the ruckus that is being created against her.......Its her opinion and she has every right to express it...and it has nothing to do with Mahesh Babu. Its how a woman has been projected on a poster and how she felt about it.This is not the first time we have seen posters like this or films that protray woman regressively but its heartening to see a main stream heroine react. Manam brathike unnam anna feeling ecchindi... hats off Samantha for actually starting a debate...this is good for our industry...its a great sign....When a top heroine sees a poster and feels that women are shown regressively, it is time for all of us to think about it rather than attack her. Perhaps many women feel the same way about the way we show them in our movies..."
