The third episode of Koffee With Karan had a really interesting pair grace the couch. While many chit-chats did make it for a fun episode, Karan Johar in between it all also brought up the topic of Samantha looking smoking hot in the song ‘Oo Antava’ from the blockbuster movie Pushpa. The lyrics of the song highlighted the male gaze. The Koffee With Karan host,  firstly went on to appreciate Samantha for giving such a bang-on performance in the song, and then further asked what made her do the song. To which Samantha replied that she loved the “tune, song” and also the fact that it was a “satire on the male gaze”. In addition to it, the Pushpa actress said that she had also been criticised for doing an item number on the song which was a satire on the male gaze. To answer this, Samantha had a very clear logic that a song that was supposed to be a satire on the male gaze could only be understood by a “nautch girl”(Samantha’s character in the movie) or an actress who has a wide range of encounters with the male gaze. Samantha further stated that she believes an actor’s body is used to express emotions, whether it is the actor doing physical stunts or an actress making a “statement” in a song. Samantha also said that there was nothing wrong in doing the song, rather it was some people who perceived it differently.
