There have been ongoing reports that Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya are on the verge to end their almost four years long wedding. It had all started with Samantha removing ‘Akkineni’ from her social media bio and things escalated too fast.

First Samantha Akkineni had removed ‘Akkineni’ from her surname on her social media handles, later, she had dodged the question of her separation from Naga Chaitanya and now, she lashed out at a journalist asking her about the same. Samantha’s aggressive reactions are adding fuel to the fire, leaving her fans worried.
On September 18, 2021, Samantha visited the Tirumala temple with her team to pray early in the morning. The actress was spotted by the paps, who approached her and asked her to comment on the reports of her divorce from her actor-husband, Naga Chaitanya. This was enough to irk Samantha and she lashed out at the pap, schooling him by giving a savage reply. Slamming the reporter, Samantha replied, "I am in the temple, do you have any sense?" while pointing at the brain. The video has been going viral on social media.
