New Delhi: Month after announcing divorce, actor Naga Chaitanya has finally broke his silence on parting ways with Samantha. While promoting his upcoming film Bangarraju, he revealed that divorce was the best solution for them at that point and it was also in the best interest of their families. On October 2, the couple took to social media to announce that they had separated. Last year, they ended their four-year marriage over irreconcilable differences.
During the promotions, Naga Chaitanya was asked about the separation. He said, “It’s okay. It was a decision made for the good of both of us individually. If she (Samantha) is happy, I am happy. That was the best decision in that situation.”
Earlier, in an appearance on Film Companion’s retrospective on 2021’s best performers, Samantha spoke about the social media trolling that she is often subjected to. She also spoke about the emotional devastation she experienced in the wake of her separation. Samantha and Chaitanya announced their split in October 2021, putting an end to rumours that had circulated for weeks.
“With everything that has happened in my personal life in 2021, I really have no expectations. All my carefully-laid plans have crumbled, so I have no expectations. I’m open to whatever the future has in store for me, I’ll give it my very best,” Samantha said.
