During the promotion of Samantha's Oh Baby film, the actress attended a television show, in which she was asked to choose Suriya or Nagarjuna. The actress was asked to say 'Who is handsome', Suriya or Nagarjuna, and her reply is still remembered by fans. She recited a dialogue from Nagarjuna's movie Manmadhudhu 2 and said 'My mama is the most handsome'.

Samantha and Nagarjuna were close to each other. They both shared a unique bond, which is unlike any other relationship. Nagarjuna always considered his daughter-in-law Samantha as his own daughter and was very protective and loving. Nag and Sam have also worked together in many films such as Manam, Raju Gari Gadhi 2, Manmadhudhu 2, and others. For the unversed, Nagarjuna is the father of Samantha's former husband Naga Chaitanya.
