'It Was A Little Painful,' Naga Chaitanya Says Of Rumours About His Split From Samantha Ruth Prabhu

Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who were formerly in the news for setting huge pair objectives, are now frequently mentioned in the news for conjecture about their relationship state - according to sources, Naga Chaitanya and Samantha are on the verge of splitting up. In a recent interview with Baradwaj Rangan for Film Companion South, Naga Chaitanya was asked 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. "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."

Naga Chaitanya went on to say how he views the situation and one observation that has helped him move forward: "It doesn't linger long in people's minds. The real news, the news that matters, will continue to be broadcast. However, the surface news, which is utilised to generate TRPs, is forgotten. It ceased bothering me once I realised what was going on."

About not responding to rumours, Naga Chaitanya said he likes to keep his personal and professional life completely separate: "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."

Samantha Ruth Prabhu's name was changed from Samantha Akkineni to only the first letter in her name "S" on her social media pages in July, fueling speculation about a possible rupture. This catapulted her into the spotlight, followed by rumours about her romance with Naga Chaitanya. 

Samantha previously stated in an interview with Film Companion that she does not feel the need to clarify a personal decision. "Even when trolling for shows like The Family Man or these, I don't react to them. That has always been my personality. I don't react to this type of noise, and I have no intention of doing so in the future." Samantha was harassed after starring in The Family Man 2 and portraying a Sri Lankan Tamil liberation fighter. In the meantime, Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu had a cute Twitter exchange about his latest film Love Story. 

After courting for years, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya married in 2017. Samantha's next film appearances will be in Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal and Shaakuntalam. On Friday, Naga Chaitanya's Love Story will be released.
