Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya are reported to be facing troubles in their married life. While both, Samantha and Chaitanya have maintained their silence over the matter, their teams’ statements have added fuel to the fire. Now, amidst the separation reports, Samantha has welcomed a new member in her life.
For the unversed, Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya are reportedly heading for a divorce after four years of married life. The news had come as a shock and when Samantha had dropped ‘Akkineni’ from her name on her IG and Twitter handle, it had raised many eyebrows. She changed her name to simply ‘S’, making everyone wonder if things are going downhill between her and her husband, Chaitanya.
Now, amid separation reports, Samantha Akkineni welcomed a new member in her life, and it is adorable. Samantha, who is already a pet mom to a cute dog, Hash, has bought home another fur baby into her life. Taking to her IG handle, Samantha shared two pictures, where, in the first photo, she was seen posing with her new pet, Saasha, and the other is a solo picture of Saasha.
Samantha captioned the pictures as “Cleaned the 19th puddle of pee today and it’s only 9 am ..but the cherry on the cake has to be the moment that I sat down with my coffee thinking ha!! 5 minutes of calm now .. only to notice one tiny little monster running with her dripping pee pad all around the house.. and suddenly my coffee isn’t strong enough Say hello to SAASHA #pitbullsofinstagram #HashandSaasha #brotherandsister #itsgoingtobeaparty." She also shared a picture on her IG story, where she can be seen talking with her two furballs during her workout session. She wrote, “The importance of TIME OUT.. Mommy duties.. teaching these two brats” atop it.
Talking about Samantha and Chaitanya’s separation reports, in an interview with Film Companion, Samantha Akkineni was asked about the ongoing reports of their separation. To this, she had smiled, stating that she rarely responds to such reports. Samantha had also added that everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Hence, she is also entitled to her own opinions. However, The Family Man season 2 actress had also added that she never lost her mind in the face of controversies and had said that gossips are just a small part of a celebrity's life.
As per the reports of ETimes, Naga Chaitanya's team had given contradictory statements when questioned about troubles in Chaitanya and Samantha's married life. When ETimes had contacted Mr Suresh, a man from Chaitanya's team and had asked him about the ongoing rumours, he had stated the news is untrue. But within seconds, he had changed his statement and had retorted, "I don't know."
Another member, Mr Raju from Chaitanya's team, had first stated that the report was 'incorrect' and later, had changed it. Mr Raju had shared that the matter should not be discussed with Chaitanya and had said, "Discussing this with the artiste (Naga Chaitanya) will be bad. This is not a thing to discuss." On the other hand, when ETimes had tried to contact Samantha, the actress had dodged the topic and went unavailable for comment.
Samantha and Chaitanya had tied the knot on October 6, 2017, after knowing each other for eight years.
