Three years have passed by, but Samantha and her former beau Naga Chaitanya have never looked back after their bitter separation. The divorce was so bad that Samantha during an interview stated that the animosity between her and Naga was such that if they were locked in a room together, all sharp objects needed to be taken out from the room.

With the bad blood between the two, it came as a surprise after the former couple came together for an event. Director-filmmaker Karan Johar, and the ‘Ye Maaya Chesave’ actors shared the stage in an event for OTT giant Amazon Prime Video in Mumbai.

Samantha is currently working on Amazon’s ‘Citadel: Honey Bunny’, hence participated at the event. Naga Chaitanya on the other hand, was present for the success of his recent web series ‘Dhootha’ that also streamed on Amazon Prime Video.

Speaking to Samantha, Karan Johar said, “There are people who can do action and there is Samantha who can kickass. How can we forget The Family Man: Season 2, ladies and gentleman, Samantha was just beyond incredible in that show.”

When asked about how she feels to be part of the action-loving spy thriller, Samantha said, “I would have never imagined that I could do action, but today me being here at the event, is already a victory for me, because till the last moment I really didn’t think that I could do it. I’m extremely grateful to Raj & DK and everyone associated with the show for really coming to my rescue.”

It is worth mentioning that even as the former couple shared the stage at the event, they were part of different projects and took stage separately. So, there have no photos or videos of them together. Apart from them, the event was star-studded, with actors including Priyanka Chopra, Suriya, Shahid Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Tamannaah and others.

Coming back to Samantha and Naga, the couple married in 2017 after seven years of dating only to separate in 2021 just in their fourth year of marriage. While Samantha will be next seen in Varun Dhawan’s ‘Citadel’, Naga is working in Thandel opposite the talented Sai Pallavi.
