There was a time when Bollywood actors used to be so catty towards each other it wasn’t even funny! From Kareena Kapoor passing snarky comments about Priyanka Chopra’s accent to Sonam and Deepika shading Ranbir Kapoor on television, these feuds would make you want to grab a pack of popcorn!

Such feuds among actors have become uncommon nowadays. Uncommon…but not extinct!

According to The Indian Express, Pooja Hegde recently posted a story on Instagram which had a picture of Samantha Akkineni, a renowned Telegu and Tamil actress, with the caption, “I don’t find her pretty at all.”

Soon after, Pooja Hegde took to Twitter to announce that her Instagram profile was, in fact, hacked.

However, an online war between Pooja Hegde fans and Samantha Akkineni fans had already started by then. #PoojaMustApologizeSamatha started trending on Twitter where Samatha fans wanted an apology from Pooja Hegde for her story. Some even thought that Pooja’s claim of her account being hacked was false.

Samantha Akkineni hasn’t officially addressed the incident yet but she took to post a selfie on Twitter with the ‘peace’ sign. Many claimed that the picture was her response to the issue.

However, Samantha’s reply to a fan’s tweet asking what she’d tell her “haters” was speculated to be her response to the initial matter.

After this, #WeSupportPoojaHegde started trending as fans claimed that the actress had nothing to apologise for and that she is being harassed and bullied. Samantha got a lot of heat from people online for her comments.
