On October 06, 2017, Tollywood's one of the most talented and beautiful actresses, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, became Samantha Akkineni, when she had tied the marital knot with her long-time beau and South industry's popular actor, Naga Chaitanya Akkineni. Their ten-year-old love story is an inspiration for the millennial generation that deals with commitment phobia, but the recent developments in their marriage have created some cracks in the hearts of their million fans across the nation.
As per the multiple reports and unnamed media sources on the internet, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and her actor-husband, Naga Chaitanya, are going through a major rift in their marriage. It is reported that the madly in love couple aren't living together due to their irreconcilable issues. However, both Naga and Samantha have dodged questions about a possible rift between them during their public appearances, which is why their fans are engulfed in deep sadness.
According to a report in ETimes, the possible reason behind Samantha Ruth Prabhu and her husband, Naga Chaitanya's possible rift and the emergence of divorce rumours is the fact that The Family Man 2 actress is still working in the world of glitz and glam. The report suggests that Samantha's glamourous photoshoots and portraying bold roles in her movies are some of the prime reasons behind a rift between Samantha and Naga's family. Also, it seemed like Naga's father and iconic actor, Nagarjuna, reportedly wanted his daughter-in-law, Samantha, to quit acting after marriage.
The report further stated that after numerous discussions between Samantha and the members of the Akkineni family over her firm decision to work in films and not leaving her acting career at any cost, the prospect of possible divorce between Samantha and Naga Chaitanya has emerged in the frame. As per the report, some unnamed sources have clearly stated that sooner or later, the divorce between Samantha and Naga is bound to happen, no matter what. Also, it has been revealed that an alimony of Rs. 50 crores will reportedly be granted to Samantha if the divorce happens.
For the unversed, the speculations about a possible rift in Samantha and Naga's 3.5 years marriage had kick-started after she had dropped her surname 'Akkineni' on her IG and Twitter handle. The actress had changed her name to simply 'S' and had made everyone wonder if things were going downhill between her and her husband, Naga Chaitanya.
No doubt, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya's chemistry always makes their fans go weak in their knees. For instance, on February 14, 2021, i.e., Valentine's Day, Samantha had taken to her IG handle and had shared a lovely picture with the love of her life, Naga Chaitanya. Along with the picture, Samantha had written a hilarious caption, revealing how she had gotten lucky to be able to get a picture with Naga Chaitanya. Her caption could be read as "Got lucky with this one @chayakkineni #vdaymush. For those of you asking for more pics of the both of us, the next scheduled date is Christmas... Approvals pending for birthdays, anniversary etc etc."
On the professional front, Samantha Ruth Prabhu will be seen next in the film, Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kadhal.
