In 2017, Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya had a fairytale-like wedding according to Christian and Hindu rituals. Head over heels in love with each other, Samantha and Chaitanya painted the town red with their romance. 4 years later, rumours of their separation are causing much pain to fans. Better known as ChaySam, the couple is reportedly not staying together any longer. Neither Chaitanya nor Samantha has opened up about the rumours.
As rumours of Samantha and Chaitanya's separation surface, a leading daily's report stated the possible reason behind the trouble in their marriage. Reportedly, Samantha, one of Tollywood's leading ladies, was sure that she will not give up her acting career post marriage. Hailing from an ordinary family based in Chennai, she made a mark for herself in the entertainment industry with her acting skills and good looks. One of the most popular stars on social media, Samantha takes the internet by storm with her glamourous photoshoots.
Chaitanya, who is the son of pan-India star Nagarjuna, hails from a reputed film family. Reportedly, Samantha's choice of bold roles and glamourous photoshoots didn't go down well with Chaitanya and his father Nagarjuna. It was reported that the Akkineni family spoke to Samantha about the same and asked her to follow the footsteps of Amala Akkineni. For the unversed, Amala, a popular actress, quit her acting career after marrying Nagarjuna in 1992. She made a comeback after 20 years with the Telugu film Life Is Beautiful in 2012. Reportedly, Samantha refused to quit acting at the peak of her career.
Amid this, Samantha's debut Hindi series, The Family Man 2, premiered and it featured the actress in an edgy and bold role. As per the leading daily's report, Samantha's portrayal of Raji disturbed members of the Akkineni family.
Sources, aware of the matter, told the daily that Samantha and Chaitanya were counselled in the family court when they decided to separate. However, nothing worked in their favour. Sources informed the daily that divorce is happening for sure and it will take another two to three months for the entire process to complete. Reportedly, Samantha might receive a total of Rs 50 crores as alimony for the divorce, including fixed assets and current assets.
The rumour of Samantha and Chaitanya's separation sparked off when the former changed her name on social media profiles to 'S'. Recently, the actress visited the Tirumala temple. While exiting, a reporter questioned Samantha about reports of separation from Chaitanya. She snapped at the person and asked, "I have come to a temple, don’t you have any sense?"
