Samantha Akkineni is one of the most sought-after actresses in the South movie industry. She has a huge fan following on social media and each and everything she posts on social media becomes a headline.

Recently, the Oh Baby actress changed her user name on social media from Samantha Akkineni to her maiden name Samantha Prabhu and having just an S as user name, fuelling rumours of trouble in paradise with hubby Naga Chaitanya.

Soon, rumours started making rounds that Sama and Chay were not on talking terms and living separately, and are heading toward divorce. 

However, Samantha has now opened up about the rumours surrounding her marriage.

During a recent interview with Film Companion, Sam was questioned about the speculations about her troubled marriage with Naga. She smiled and replied, 'I do not want to react to all these things. I don't like controversy. Just like others are free to express their views, so am I.'

Despite all the stories of her troubled marriage raging around in media, Samantha yesterday on the occasion of father-in-law Nagarjuna's birthday took to Twitter to wish him.                                                               

"No words can describe my respect for you. I wish you an abundance of health and happiness, today and always. Happy birthday to the man, the phenomena @iamnagarjuna mama," tweeted Sam.



On the work front, Samantha recently won the Best Performance (Female) in Web Series at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne for her role Raji in The Family Man 2.
