Naga Chaitanya dismissed rumours around his divorce. He slammed the media for spreading fake news and misinformation. On Thursday, January 27, multiple media reports started quoting actor Nagarjuna, saying that the decision to separate was taken by Samantha, and not his son Chaitanya.

However, Naga Chaitanya yesterday dismissed these rumours and said the divorce was a mutual decision. He also urged the media to not spread rumours around his divorce.

Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya announced their separation last year in 2021, after being married for four years. Speculations of separation arose as Samantha changed her social media handles to ‘S’ only.

Nagarjuna’s Statement on Divorce

Speaking to IndiaGlitz, Nagarjuna has claimed that Samantha took the decision to separate, adding, “Naga Chaitanya accepted her decision but he was much worried about me, what I would think and what would happen to the family’s reputation. Naga Chaitanya consoled me very much as he thought I would be worried. ”

The statement came weeks after Naga Chaitanya spoke about the mutual decision of divorce at a promotional event. “It is ok to be separated. That is a mutual decision made for their individual happiness,” he said.

Nagarjuna was shocked by the decision taken by his son and daughter-in-law. “They both have been together for 4 years in their married life but no problem like this came between them. Both were so close and I don’t know how it came down to this decision. They even celebrated 2021’s New Year together, it seems that the problems have arisen after that,” he told IndiaGlitz.

What Followed Naga and Samantha’s Separation?

There was a lot of speculation around the divorce of the two actors, Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu. In the early 2021, Samantha changed her initials on social media only to ‘S’ which made the fans worried.

Samantha was subjected to a lot of criticism. She also shared her experience on her Instagram earlier. “Our emotional investment into a personal crisis has overwhelmed me. Thank you all for showing deep empathy, concern and for defending me against false rumours and stories that are being spread. They say I had affairs, never wanted children, that I am an opportunist, and now that I have had abortions,” she wrote.
