Actors Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya, who got married in 2017 after meeting and falling in love with each other on the set of their movie ‘Ye Maya Chesave’, had an unfortunate ending in their off-screen love life. The former couple announced their official divorce after four years of marriage.
In a recent interview for a Youtube Channel Prema The Journalist, Naga Chaitanya talks about his marriage and divorce from his former wife Samantha. He stated, “Whatever happened in my personal life with my marriage, that’s very unfortunate. But I have immense respect for that phase of my life. It is due to the media reportage and how they’ve portrayed everything by speculating and spreading rumours, the whole respect is lost and diminished in the public eye. This is what hurt me a lot. It was almost a year since the court has given us divorce on mutual consent.”
According to some reports, the cause behind Naga’s marriage with Samantha was his rumoured romance with Shobita Dhulipala. Although Naga did not speak about his relationship with the ‘Made in Heaven’ actress, he mentioned it indirectly as he said, “Just for headlines, they’re linking my name to some third person and speculating more. This has really hurt me a lot. For no reason or fault at all of the third party, they’re being dragged into this whole issue. Whatever happened has happened, they should let go. I just hope that they will stop and move on with my clarification now.”
Naga Chaitanya is currently promoting his movie ‘Custody’, meanwhile Samantha will soon be seen in her upcoming Spy Thriller ‘Citadal’ alongside Varun Dhawan.
