In an interview with the Firstpost, Nagarjuna had opened up about his son, Naga Chaitanya and his then-daughter in law, Samantha's separation. He had shared that he was proud of his son, Chaitanya, and the way he had handled his separation. Sharing that Chaitanya was distraught, the doting father had said:

"I am very proud of how calm he remained through it all. He was not provoked into uttering a single word. Like any father, I was very worried about him. But he was more worried about me than I was about him. He would ask me, 'You okay, Dad?' and I'd be like, 'Errr, isn't that what I should be asking you?'"


While promoting the film, Bangarraju, Naga Chaitanya had addressed the reason for his separation with Samantha Ruth Prabhu during a media interaction. Talking about the same, he had shared

"It is ok to be separated. That is a mutual decision made for their individual happiness. If she is happy, then I am happy. So divorce is the best decision in such a situation."


On the work front, Samantha will be next seen in a foreign film, Arrangements of Love, and Naga Chaitanya will be seen in his Bollywood debut film, Laal Singh Chaddha.
