Samantha had posted a heartfelt note in response to the rumours of her various affairs and not wanting to have a baby as reasons behind the separation. Chaitanya and Samantha were the power couple of the Telugu cinema and fans loved their jodi. Together they were called #ChaySam. The actors were married for five years.
Even as Samantha and Chaitanya battle their personal crisis, they continue to fulfil their professional committments. Chaitanya has been gracing the events of his latest film “Love Story” with Sai Pallavi and also attended the promotional event of “Eligible Bachelor” featuring Pooja Hegde and Akhil Akkineni.
Samantha has been promoting her fashion label “Saaki” which completed one year and also walked the ramp for Rina Singh’s sustainable brand Eka at FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week.
She will soon be seen in Evaru Meelo Koteeswarulu hosted by Jr.NTR. The show is the Telugu version of Kaun Banega Crorepati. The episode featuring Samantha is likely to be aired on Dussehra on October 15.
