Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who were once considered one of the most loved couples in the South industry, made headlines when they announced their divorce over a year ago. Despite the passage of time, the former couple’s high-profile marriage and subsequent split continue to be the talk of the town.
The stars have remained tight-lipped about the reason behind the decision. However, Naga Chaitanya recently opened up on his marriage failure, his equation with ex-wife Samantha Ruth Prabhu and the quality he really likes in Samantha.
Samantha’s determination is what impressed Chay. He said if Samantha Ruth Prabhu wants something, she would go get it.
During an interview with Prema the Journalist, when he was asked about the quality he likes in Samantha. He responded by saying, ““Samantha… go-getter, hard worker. Her determination is amazing. If she wants something, she will go get it.”
Speaking about the films that he liked of her in recent times, Chay revealed that he loved Samantha in Oh Baby! and The Family Man 2.
In the same interview, Chaitanya opened up on his failed marriage as well. When asked about how he sees his relationship with Samantha, he said he only has immense respect for that phase.
“Whatever happened in my personal life with my marriage, that’s very unfortunate. But I have immense respect for that phase of my life. It is due to the media reportage and how they’ve portrayed everything by speculating and spreading rumours, the whole respect is lost, diminished in the public eye. This is what hurt me a lot,” Chaitanya said.
On the work front, Naga Chaitanya will next be seen in Tamil-Telugu bilingual film Custody. In the Venkat Prabhu-directed film Custody, Chaitanya plays a police constable. The film also stars Krithi Shetty, Priyamani, Arvind Swamy and Sarath Kumar in key roles.
