Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Shilpa Reddy’s bond

Earlier, Samantha Ruth Prabhu has expressed her love for Shilpa Reddy. And latter also has expressed what she feels for Samantha, saying, “Sam and I both used to believe that, after a certain age, it is impossible to develop or find best friends,” she added, “To our astonishment, we bonded instantly and profoundly. Our value systems are similar, like how we treat our own siblings or family. We respect each other and push and cheer (each other on) in all we do in life. Our friendship has only grown and continues to grow. Our personalities are completely different, but there is a common thread that connects us. We point out each other’s flaws and offer constructive criticism.”

The two collaborated to create Ekam Early Learning Centre together with educationist Mukta Khurana. Shilpa told to Femina, “We both agree that a child’s education should not interfere with his or her childhood,”
