  • Samantha triggered speculations after she dropped Akkineni surname from social media profiles
  • Her social media profile currently carries only an S letter which is surprising.

Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya married a few years ago and since then she has carried the surname Akkineni on her social media profiles. But recently, the Southern diva dropped her surname Akkineni from all her social media profiles which surprised her fans and followers. She has now changed her profile name only to letter S. There has been no indication of any rift between Sam and her actor-husband.

But when the fans came to know that Samantha Akkineni has dropped Akkineni from her social media profile they started wondering as to what made The Family Man 2 actress take such an action. Usually, celebs make such changes when they decide to separate or divorce their partner.


At the start of this month, the actress even shared a picture of Naga Chaitanya with Aamir Khan and other teammates of Lal Singh Chaddha and shared joyful emojis. The couple went on a holiday in the Maldives at the start of this year to kick off New Year in style. So, the speculations about any issues between Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Akkineni do not seem to be true.

On the work front, the actress has made a strong impact as Raji with The Family Man 2. While many of her competitors like Rakul Preet Singh, Pooja Hegde, and Rashmika Mandanna are getting good Bollywood projects, after her smashing performance in The Family Man 2, fans are hoping that soon the Oh Baby actress will feature in some big banner Bollywood movie.

All through the lockdown, Samantha promoted clean eating and choosing plant-based nutrition for a healthy life. She has been an inspiration to many as the Southern diva keeps on sharing her workout videos regularly. Currently, Samantha Akkineni is busy shooting for Shakuntalam, a romantic drama based on the mythological story of King Dushyant and Shakuntala.  

She is also a part of Vignesh Shivan’s directorial debut movie Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kaadhal which also stars Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi.
