Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya, who have been married for almost 4 years, decided to announce their divorce last October. Their announcement came as a shock to many fans. As some are still speculating about the reason behind their divorce, Nagarjuna Akkineni has now suggested what might have been wrong between them.
The now estranged couple met on the sets of their hit film Yeh Maaya Chesave (2009). The two shared a great bond on set, their camaraderie soon translating into blistering on-screen chemistry. However, the sparks only flew when they got together in 2014 for another movie Autonagar Surya. The two then married in 2017.
Now on their way to a divorce, Naga Chaitanya’s father and Telugu superstar Nagarjuna Akkineni now reveal that it was Samantha who initiated the divorce during a conversation with IndiaGlitz. He said: “Naga accepted her decision, but he was very concerned about me, what I would think and what would happen to the reputation of the family.”
The Brahmastra actor further revealed that the Love Story actor was more concerned about the family reputation. Akkineni said: “Naga Chaitanya has comforted me a lot because he thought I would be worried. They have both been married for 4 years, but no problem if this came between them. Both were so close and I don’t know how came to this decision, they even celebrated the new year 2021 together, it seems that after that the problems started.”
Nagarjuna Akkineni previously claimed to be proud of his son Naga Chaitanya for how he handled his divorce from Samantha. Yeh Maaya Chesave actor also previously said that the decision to part ways with his wife Samantha was taken in their mutual best interests.
Both announced the split via a joint statement on October 2, 2021.
