Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya parted ways and announced their separation on social media. The popular Tollywood couple separated after four years of marital bliss. The very next day, 'The Family Man 2' actress also changed her name on social media from 'S' to 'Samantha'. After the official announcement, Samantha and Chaitanya, are moving on with their respective lives, without holding themselves back.


Here's what Samantha and Chaitanya shared on social media:


"After much deliberation and thought, Chay and I have decided to part ways as husband and wife to pursue our own paths. We are fortunate to have a friendship of over a decade that was the very core of our relationship which we believe will always hold a special bond between us," the statement read.

Chaitanya, the son of South veteran actor Akkineni Nagarjuna and Lakshmi Daggubati, met Samantha, 34, on the sets of their 2010 film ‘Ye Maaya Chesave’ and started dating soon after. They got engaged in January 2017 and tied the knot in October of the same year. As actors, the couple had featured together in three more films – ‘Manam’, ‘Autonagar Surya’ and ‘Majili’.

Over the past few years, Samantha has matured into a professional, proving her golden touch in films, television, endorsements, and also on OTT, where she made her entry with a rather controversial role in the second season of the hit series, 'The Family Man', starring Manoj Bajpayee.

Looking back, observers believe that clouds were gathering in the couple's marital heaven around the same time she was facing censure from Tamil groups on her role in the series as a Sri Lankan Tamil militant.

The first sign of trouble in paradise was when she deleted 'Akkineni' from her social media IDs. Even as fans and the media speculated on the implications of her move, there was silence from all quarters.
