Whenever film actors and sports persons are inking deals to endorse soft drinks, snacks or junk food, they are increasingly getting criticized. Indian Cricketer Team Captain Virat Kohli during the last IPL season promoted a new brand of chips- Too Yumm! He got a lot of flak for that.
In similar fashion, actress Samantha, known for maintaining a healthy and fit physique, has come under fire for promoting a popular snack brand. She recently partnered up with a snack brand Kurkure and took to Twitter to promote it. However, this didn't go well with netizens who slammed her for promoting the corn-based snack and called it unhealthy.
When a netizen questioned, “I just wonder if @Samanthaprabhu2 had at least a full pack of kurkure on the day of ad shoot. These actresses and models eat salads and healthy crap but encourage us to eat unhealthy foods. @KurkureSnacks,” Samantha reacted quickly saying she too cheats by eating snacks like Kurkure. What’s more she assured to send a picture of her Sunday meal.
“Yes I did.I’ll make sure to send you a pic of my Sunday meals . Yes I eat healthy but look forward to my cheat days and love snacks like Kurkure just as much as any other normal person does . And @KurkureSnacks has answered every query that has been put to them (including mine )” tweeted Sam.
On the film front, Samantha is currently busy with her upcoming film Majili where is paired opposite her real-life husband Naga Chaitanya. The film directed by Shiva Nirvana is slated for release on 4th April.
