Samatha Akkineni is extremely close and adored by her in-laws. Like a doting bahu, she had penned a heartfelt birthday wish for her father-in-law, Nagarjuna, along with a picture of him. Her million-dollar note for her sasur ji could be read as “What everyone seeks you have found... just being around you I have learned to only look within for happiness... it is your beautiful mind, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love… you have defeated age, my mama, #happybirthdayking You will continue to inspire generation after generation... you are pure goals.”
In the Telegu version of Feet Up With The Stars, Samatha Akkineni got all candid and shared the beauty of being a part of such a famous and amazing family. She shared, “Swear to God, there was no pressure. Both the families are like friends and are so open with their children and treat them like adults who are capable of making their own decisions without any fear. I feel it (being part of Akkineni and Daggubati family) has been more of a strength because I have the advice of amazing people. I can now call Suresh uncle and say, ‘I have this doubt’ and he’s like the wizard of the Telugu industry. If you can answer his questions, your film is a hit." And then, Samantha went on to reveal the name of the person who adds colour to her life, “My father-in-law Nagarjuna. He is the bible on how to live your life." Isn’t it amazing?
On August 29, 2019, South superstar, Nagarjuna had turned 60. For the same, his sons, Chaitanya Akkineni, Akhil Akkineni and the former’s wife, Samantha Akkineni had jetted off to Ibiza, to give him a surprise to remember. An India Today report had it that the younger lot of Akkinenis’ were to host a private party for the 60-year-old star. It was also stated in the report that there would be a week-long celebration on the occasion of Nagarjuna’s birthday! In the similar lines, Samantha had taken to Instagram and posted a full family glimpse, comprising of herself, hubby, Chaitanya, father-in-law, Nagarjuna, Chay's step-mother, Amala Akkineni and Chay’s half-brother, Akhil Akkineni from their holiday.

Not just her father-in-law, Samantha Akkineni shares an equally beautiful bond with her mother-in-law (Nagarjuna's first wife and Naga Chaitanya's mother), Lakshmi Daggubati. A picture shared by the Theri actress had made us swoon, wherein she had sported a light-blue kurta and had twinned with her sasu maa. While who had looked better was difficult to decide, Samantha’s heartfelt caption had a lot to reveal. In the caption, she had also revealed her hubby, Naga Chaitanya’s take on their twinning spree, “Twinning with my MIL .. walked out in the same outfit on the same day (no planning involved)... all the approval I need @chayakkineni men search for women similar to their mothers ... suddenly this seems right @payalkhandwala.”
Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya had dated for over 8 years and had then tied the nuptial bond in 2017. In an interview on Famously Filmfare, Samantha had talked about the times when things didn’t work out between them. The actress from Tollywood was quoted as saying, “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.” (Must Read: Priyanka Chopra Jonas Shared That Her Hubby, Nick Jonas Is Her Late Father, Ashok Chopra's 'Chhavi')
