It was back in 2017 when Tollywood's most adorable couple, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya had tied the knot and had begun their happy married life. Everything was going perfectly fine, and reports of the couple's first pregnancy were doing rounds in the media. But, while their fanbase, ChaySam couldn't stop drooling over their cutesy PDAs on social media and romantic snippets from their dinner dates, a storm was waiting for them right at the corner.
After being together for more than three years of their happy married life, Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya had announced their separation on October 2, 2021, breaking the hearts of their million fans. They had issued an official statement on their respective IG handles, which could be read as:
"To all our well-wishers. 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."
In a recent conversation with famous YouTuber, Siddharth Kannan, South Indian actor, Naga Chaitanya, who is all set and excited to make his debut in Bollywood with the film, Laal Singh Chaddha talked about his relationship status. When the actor was asked about his dating rumours with Sobhita Dhulipala and whether the reports claiming that they're in a relationship are true, the latter gave a cryptic response. Naga Chaitnaya didn't reply with a clear 'no'. Instead, the actor started blushing, given the not-so-much-needed fire to his dating rumours with Sobhita. After blushing for some seconds, Naga stated that he was not going to say anything about these reports. The actor said:
"I'm just going to smile."
Now, all the people who were waiting anxiously for a response like this are on cloud nine. As of now, they're speculating even more about Naga Chaitanya's relationship with Sobhita Dhulipala. While some people are sharing Naga and Sobhita's picture collages, many are treating this small gesture from Naga as a confirmation. Well, the actor has not confirmed his relationship with Sobhita as of now. However, going further in the conversation with Siddharth Kannan, the actor admitted that he has a crush on Katrina Kaif. Naga Chaitanya said:
"I have grown up crushing on Katrina Kaif."
After Naga Chaitanya's separation from his ex-wife, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, both the celebs have moved on in their respective lives. And for some months, reports are rife that Naga Chaitanya has found love again in glamourous actress, Sobhita Dhulipala. As per a report of Pinkvilla, the South Indian actor is dating the Major actress, and it was also reported that the two are very comfortable in one another's company. Talking about the same, the source had said:
"Chay and Sobhita seemed very comfortable in each other's company as they spent time at the actor's new house. Naga Chaitanya was giving her a tour of his massive home. After a few hours, they left together in the same car."
On the professional front, Naga Chaitanya will be next seen in the film, Laal Singh Chaddha, which will be released in theatres on August 11, 2022.
