Telugu actor Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu are reportedly headed for a split. In a recent interview with Film Companion South, Naga was quizzed about how he deals with the fact that his personal life was being referenced in reports of late and that if it was “painful” on a personal level. To this, Naga said,
Initially, yes, it was a little painful. I was like ‘why is entertainment heading this way?’ But after that, what I’ve learned is that in today’s age, news replaces news.
The actor also said he likes to keep his personal and professional life completely separate. He quoted,
I think from a very early time in my career, I sort of kept my personal life personal and my professional life professional. I never mixed the both. I’ve always had this habit that I learned from my parents as I was growing up, I always noticed once they came home, they never spoke about work. And when they went to work, their personal life was never diluting into work. It was a very nice balance that they maintained, which I always observed.
Naga Chaitanya is the son of Telugu superstar Nagarjuna.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya got married in a simple ceremony at Goa in 2017 after dating for years. Rumours about a speculated rift were fanned in July, when Samantha Ruth Prabhu changed her name on her social media accounts, which no longer read her full name – it was changed from Samantha Akkineni to simply the first letter in her name “S.” This followed by speculation about her relationship status with Naga Chaitanya.
The couple does not have any children.
Earlier, in an interview with Film Companion, Samantha said she does not feel the need for clarification about a personal decision. The Family Man 2 actor said,
The thing is, even with trolling for The Family Man or this, I don’t react to them. That is how I have always been. I don’t react to this kind of noise and I don’t intend on doing so as well.
Speculated Reason Behind Split
As per a report by TOI, Samantha always loved cinema. Born into an ordinary family in Chennai, Sam has gained much recognition through movies. Reportedly, she did not want to give up the glam world even after marriage. She has been doing photoshoots and glamorous roles over and over.

It seems that the family has been in talks with Sam several times to change her mind, however, nothing worked.

According to the sources, Samantha’s thoughts about her career have not changed, and as a result, the matter led to divorce.
Adding further, the TOI report also said that the two have been counselled several times in the family court after Samantha and Naga Chaitanya decided to separate.
TOI report also added that the whole process will be completed in another two to three months, and according to their sources, Samantha will reportedly receive a total of Rs 50 crore as alimony for the divorce, which includes fixed assets and current assets.
