- “The superficial news is forgotten,” Naga Chaitanya stated.
- “Once I made this observation, it stopped bothering me,” he continued.
- Samantha changed her name on social media, which sparked divorce rumours.
Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Akkineni, who were previously in the news for setting major couple goals, are now frequently on the trending list for speculation about their relationship status – according to sources, Naga Chaitanya and Samantha were rumoured to be on the verge of divorce. Naga Chaitanya was asked how he copes with the fact that his personal life has lately been addressed in media in a recent interview, and if it has been “difficult” on a personal level. “Yes, it was a little painful at first. ‘Why is entertainment going this way?’ I wondered. But, after that, I’ve learned that in today’s world, news replaces news.”
Naga Chaitanya elaborated on his perspective on the situation and one observation that has helped him move on, saying: “It doesn’t linger long in people’s thoughts. The real news, the news that matters, will continue to exist. However, the superficial news, which is used to boost TRPs, is forgotten. It no longer bothered me once I made this observation.”
About not responding to rumours, Naga Chaitanya has stated that he prefers to keep his personal and professional lives separate: “I think I kept my personal life private and my work life separate from the beginning of my career. I’ve never combined the two. I’ve always had a habit that I learned from my parents; once they got home, they never mentioned work. And when they went to work, they never let their personal lives interfere with their work. They constantly maintained a really great balance, which I observed.”
Samantha Akkineni changed her name on her social media profiles in July, which no longer read her complete name – it was changed from Samantha Akkineni to only the initial letter in her name “S.” This put her into the spotlight, prompting speculation about her relationship status with Naga Chaitanya.
Samantha previously stated in an interview that she does not feel the need for explanation on a personal decision. “The issue is, I don’t respond to trolling for The Family Man or this. That’s the way I’ve always been. I don’t react to this type of nonsense, and I don’t intend to do so in the future.” Samantha was ridiculed after acting in The Family Man 2 as a Sri Lankan Tamil liberation rebel.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya married in 2017 after years of courtship. Samantha’s upcoming films will be Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal and Shaakuntalam. Naga Chaitanya next release Love Story will be out on Friday.
