In his recent interview, Chay showered praises on his ex-wife Sam. During his interview with ETimes, Chay revealed about his current status with Sam and said, “Yes. It has been more than two years since we separated and a year since we formally divorced. The court has granted us a divorce. Both of us have moved on with our lives. I have tremendous respect for that phase of my life.”  

Further, the Laal Singh Chaddha actor said that unwanted media attention made things terrible. He said that the media buzz and rumours made things more awkward between them. 

"Samantha is a lovely person and deserves all the happiness. It is only when the media speculates that things get awkward between us. In the public eye, that mutual respect is taken away. That's what I feel bad about,” said Chay.

Well, recently, Sam made it to the headlines after she was spotted flaunting her tattoo of ‘Chay’ on her back.
