South Indian actor, Naga Chaitanya has been hitting the headlines for his Bollywood debut, Laal Singh Chaddha, alongside actors, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. He has been garnering a lot of appreciation for his role of lovable 'Bala' in the movie, and his massive fanbase is showering him with much love and congratulatory messages. However, in an interview, the actor revealed a shocking incident from his growing up days and left us stunned.
On the personal front, Naga Chaitanya had tied the knot with actress, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, on October 6-7, 2017, in a two-day destination wedding in Goa. And on October 2, 2021, just a few days before their fourth wedding anniversary, the duo officially announced their divorce. The news of their separation was truly heartbreaking for their massive fanbase, as their fans were anxiously waiting to hear the good news from them.
In an interview with Mashable India, Naga Chaitanya opened up about his life after divorce from ex-wife and actress, Samantha Ruth Prabhu. When the actor was asked if the female attention has increased now that he is single, the actor said that he has always been the ladies' favourite, but in a good way. Talking about the same, Naga said:
“Female attention was always there, I mean it in a good way. It’s always nice to have female attention.”
During the candid conversation, when the interviewer revealed that he was once caught by the police for kissing his girlfriend at a railway station, Naga also shared a similar incident and left everyone shocked. The Laal Singh Chaddha actor revealed that he was once caught making out in a car and added that he feels cool about it. In his words:
“That happened to me also. I was in the back seat of a car like in Hyderabad making out. It’s okay. It’s a story to tell. I feel cool about it. I know what I was doing and I got caught.”
Earlier in an interview with ETimes, Naga Chaitanya had talked about how his separation with Samantha Ruth Prabhu has become a topic of discussion for everyone due to the ex-duo's profession and had added that it is frustrating that his personal life is making the headlines more than his achievements. Requesting everyone to give them 'personal space', Naga had said:
“It is frustrating. I am here as an actor and I want my professional life to do the talking. I don’t want my personal life to be the topic of discussion. We all have a personal space and there’s a reason why it’s called ‘personal’. Unfortunately, it’s a part of this job where your personal space also becomes a narrative. That’s the baggage that this job carries. It’s my responsibility to be affected by it or not. Every celebrity needs to take that call, actually. It does become frustrating that my personal life makes for a bigger headline than my professional achievements. But I guess, I just need to keep working harder on my profession. The personal life bits will come and go.”
On the work front, Naga Chaitanya is currently seen in the film, Laal Singh Chaddha.
