Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya were married for over four years and announced their separation in a joint statement today.
Rumours of Samantha’s divorce from Naga started doing the rounds in July, when Samantha changed her name on her social media accounts. It was changed from Samantha Akkineni to simply the first letter in her name “S.”
Last month, during Samantha’s visit to a temple in Telangana she was questioned by a media person about the rumours on her seperation from husband Naga Chaitanya.
Agitated, Samantha replied in Telugu: “Gudiki vachanu. Buddhi unda (I have come to a temple. Don’t you have any sense?)”
The couple has been rooting for each other’s work on social media with full gusto.
When Chaitanya posted a picture with Aamir Khan from the sets of his debut Hindi film ‘Laal Singh Chadha’, Samantha reposted it and gave it a shout out.
Samantha had also retweeted the trailer of Chaitanya’s upcoming film ‘Love Story’ and called it a winner. Chaitanya too replied to the compliment from his wife and wrote: “Thanks Sam”.
