Being in love is the best feeling ever! The entire world seems to be running at high speed as and when you connect with your love. You start living and feeling all the romantic shots from Karan Johar’s movies, like the lovely breeze and flowing dupatta. Such is a fairytale love story of Tollywood's much-loved couple Naga Chaitanya (commonly known as Chay Akkineni) and Samantha Akkineni (formerly known as, Samantha Ruth Prabhu). Ever since the day they had announced their wedding till date, Naga and Samantha have been scoring full marks in the subject of 'love-o-logy'!

October 6, 2017, Samantha and Naga decided on forever as they tied the knot in a dreamy 2-day wedding. They had two weddings, they first got married in a typical South Indian manner and then, a day later, they had a Christian wedding. And ever since the cutesy couple has been posting their lovely couple pictures with mushy captions every now and then. Also, the way they have been gushing over each other in interviews post-marriage is beyond words!
In a recent interaction with Famously Filmfare, Naga couldn't stop feeling grateful about marrying Samantha. He even declared that she is a known devil and that he is aware of all her mischiefs. Here’s what the doting hubby said, "I think there was a point when we both were single. We hung out more than normal. So, automatically things started building between us. I was also mentally looking to settle down. I always looked forward to having a family. So, all those thoughts started flowing in my head and she was right there in front of me. So, I was like she is a known devil (chuckles). I know all her mischief and I am fine with them."

Adding further, he had shared the reason why he feels it is better to marry a best friend. Chay stated, "They say it is the best thing to marry your best friend. I believe if personal life is balanced, work, money and everything else just fall into place. That is my religion. My biggest priority is to keep that balance at home. My wife should be happy. My family should be happy. If I see a smile on their face, I can go to work happily and make money."
Earlier when Samantha had appeared on the show as a guest, she had revealed an interesting detail about her marriage with Chay. The actress had talked about the times when things were not going fine between the two and had shared, “It took us eight years to be at the same point. Because there were times when I really liked him, and he was not in that space. And there were times when we wanted to work it out, but external factors. It took us a very long time to be in the same space.” (Checkout: Katrina Kaif Reveals Ex-Boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor Has A Fake Instagram Account To Stalk People)
She also went on to add, “I think I was in 11th or 12th grade, you know my friends and I used to do odd jobs just for pocket money. You know Taj Coromandel, many companies used to organize events there. So, my friends and I used to go there and be in the reception committee. The writing, getting people to fill in the forms. The journey has been very long, and it was quite an experience. I don't think many people will get a chance to experience the same. And I think that translates into the work I do.”
Earlier, Samantha had talked about her life post-marriage and had stated, “Chay and I have a very normal approach to things; from writing our provision list to deciding the menu for dinner, to seeing if everything is there at home. Day-to-day activities are organised by us. I like to do that at home.” (Don't Miss: Taimur Ali Khan's Favourite Game Is Saying 'Khichik Khichik' Pretending To Be 'Mediawale')
Revealing about their family planning, Samantha had retorted, “When I have a child, that child is going to be my universe. I had the greatest respect for working mothers. My childhood was not very rosy. For all adults, who haven’t had a very rosy childhood, the first thing they will tell you is that they want to give their child everything that they did not have. That’s something that has stuck with me. So, I think the first few years after I have a child, I would not be anywhere. That child will be everything for me.”
Here's wishing an eternity of togetherness and an ocean full of happiness to Chay and Samantha!
