Pan-India Recognised Actors
Being the son of the Telugu film industry's superstar Akkineni Nagarjuna Rao and related to a family with several members linked to the film industry, it was not a tough job for Chay to step into the film industry. However, he underwent special training before making his debut in 2009 with Josh.
Chay is well admired for pulling off his characters in a natural way. In his acting career spanning over a decade with over 20 movies, the actor has given multiple hit movies and earned several awards. Like his father, Chay has now stepped into the Bollywood industry.

Well, time will reveal how Hindi film lovers accept the Tollywood star.
Unlike hubby Chay, Tollywood queen Samantha has already made her debut in Bollywood with The Family Man: Season 2, starring Manoj Bajpayee in the lead. Sam engraved a milestone in the BTown with her stellar performance portraying Raji character which was streamed on the OTT platform. Though there are no updates regarding her next project in Bollywood, fans hope she will soon enthral the pan-India audience.
Chay and Sam shared screen space for the first time in the romantic drama Ye Maaya Chesave directed by Gautham Menon. The 2010's Telugu flick became a huge success at the box office and went on to become a cult movie. Since then, the actors haven't looked back. The power couple has worked together in four movies- Ye Maaya Chesave, Manam, Majili, and Autonagar Surya of which three, except for Autonagar Surya, were major superhits.
Following the footprints of Nagarjuna, Chay and Sam have stepped into Bollywood to leave a mark as pan-India actors. Isn't this a dream come true moment for them!
Dream Destination Wedding
Everyone dreams of making wedding arrangements at a scenic location and compile several other things to make it memorable. The Tollywood star couple made it happen as they tied the knot in Goa in 2017.

Sam and Chay certainly fulfilled the dream of a grand destination wedding.
