Away from the comforts of home, all that a newbie bride looks forward to, is how her ‘another mother’ would treat her. Trust me you, there is no other feeling in the world better than your mother-in-law adoring you and leaving you with no space to think about your maternal home. And in the similar lines, Samantha Akkineni and her mother-in-law, Lakshmi Daggubati redefine saas-bahu goals.

Married to each other on October 6, 2017, in Goa, Samantha Ruth Prabhu became Samatha Akkineni as she took the seven vows with her then co-star and now hubby, Naga Chaitanya Akkineni (son of South superstar, Nagarjuna). It is one-and-a-half years since this couple has been married and they don’t fail to give us major hubby-wife goals. Every picture that the couple shares on social media, only makes us fall in love with them even more!
And what looks like it, Samantha Akkineni shares an equally beautiful bond with her mother-in-law too. A picture shared by the doting bahu made our hearts go all ‘awww’, when she sported similar light-blue kurta and twinned with her sasu maa. While who looked better is difficult to apprehend, but Samantha’s heartfelt caption had a lot to reveal. In the caption, the Majili actress also revealed 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.”
Isn’t it amazing? Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya had dated for over 8 years and then had tied the nuptial bond. In a recent interview with Famously Filmfare, Samantha had talked about the times when things didn’t work out between them. The Tollywood actress 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.” (Also Read: Priyanka Chopra Dances To Kareena Kapoor's 'Tareefan' With Her Future Sister-In-Law, Sophie Turner)
A while back, rumours were rife that Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya are expecting their first child. But the couple refuted all such rumours and Samantha was quoted as saying, “I have put a date as to when I want my baby. The date has been fixed! Like, as if that’s going to happen according to the date we have fixed! But Chay (Naga Chaitanya) seems to be certain that it will happen on the assigned date!”
Further speaking about how she would like to perceive her motherhood, Samantha Akkineni was quoted as saying, “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”.
Has Samantha Akkineni’s life changed after her marriage? She had spoken about the same in an interview and had shared, “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”.
Rumours also had it that Samantha Akkineni is going to quit acting post her marriage. Dismissing such baseless reports, hubby, Naga Chaitanya had told a media portal, “Sam won’t quit films as she is super busy with multiple projects currently. She may take a break, but she won’t quit now”. And before their wedding in 2017, when the doting hubby was asked if Sam would continue to work after marriage, the supportive husband had said, “Whether she chooses to do one film or ten is entirely her choice. But she will continue with her career after marriage”. (Must Read: Huma Qureshi Is Dating Sushmita Sen's Ex-Boyfriend Mudassar Aziz? Details Inside)
