Samantha Akkineni Reveals That She First Joined Gym To Check Out Naga Chaitanya And Not For Fitness

The phrase that opposites attract fits well to this adorable Tollywood couple, Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya. Samantha is a live wire, who is quite active on social media and loves sharing details about her personal life with her fans. On the other hand, her hubby, Naga Chaitanya, is quite shy and never talks about his personal life. But together, they make for an adorable couple and we love seeing them together.

It was on the sets of Gautam Menon’s Telugu film, Ye Maaya Chesave, when Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya were casted opposite each other for the first time. Their chemistry in the film was loved by all their fans and little did the lead pair knew that the film would change their lives forever, professionally and personally. After striking a great bond on the sets, Samantha and Chaitanya became thick friends and within the course of time, realised how much they love each other. After dating for some time, Samantha and Chaitanya had tied the knot on October 6, 2017, in a dreamy two-day wedding according to both Hindu and Christian rituals.

As we mentioned, Samantha is quite active on social media and loves interacting with her fans. Recently, she held an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on her IG handle, where she replied to a bunch of questions asked by her fans. When one of her fans asked how the stunning actress got into fitness, her honest reply was too adorable to be missed. She replied that her joining the gym for the first time had nothing to do with fitness but was for Naga Chaitanya. Answering the same, she said, “I will tell you a big secret. So, you know why I started going to the gym? To check out Chay, because he used to go to this gym and I joined because…” and she started laughing. Now, isn’t that cute? Another fan of hers asked her why Naga Chaitanya is so anti-social? To which, the gorgeous actress responded, “Let's ask Chay, Chay why are you so anti-social?"

This is not the first time, when Samantha had won our hearts with her witty replies. In November 2020, she had taken to her IG handle and had shared a smiling picture of herself with “feeling good” written atop it. While her picture had received a lot of likes and her fans couldn’t stop drooling over the stunning picture, one of her followers had asked her to divorce Naga Chaitanya and marry him. Sam, being her bindaas self, replied to the comment in the funniest manner. She had replied her fan that it was a difficult one and had told him to ask Chay. (Also Read: Karan Veer Mehra and Nidhi Seth Kickstart Their New Journey By Seeking Blessings At Golden Temple)



A few months back, Samantha had featured on the chat show, Zoom Happy Space, where she had talked about her personal and professional lives. She had also shared how she convinces Chaitanya before posting his picture on her social media handle and had said, “If I have to put up his picture on my social media, I have to give him one month notice or he has to be in a really good mood."


On October 6, 2020, Samantha and Chaitanya had completed three years of marital bliss. To wish the love of her life, Samantha had taken to her IG handle and had shared a monochrome picture from their cousin, Rana Daggubati’s wedding. Posing with arms around each other, Samantha and Chaitanya had looked stunning as usual. Along with the picture, Samantha had written a beautiful wish for her hubby which could be read as “You are my person and I am yours, that whatever door we come to, we will open it together. Happy anniversary husband @chayakkineni” followed by a heart emoticon. (Also Read: Mira Rajput Kapoor Wears Rs 10K Thigh-High Slit Dress And It Will Make You Crave For A Beach Holiday)
