Next month, Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha will include Naga Chaitanya in his Hindi film debut. For several years, the actor has been a household name in the Telugu film industry. But, as he admitted, he has recently been in the news for his personal life rather than his work. Chaitanya divorced his wife, actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu, last year, and their public divorce has dominated headlines for months. Chaitanya recently discussed whether he and Samantha would ever work together again in a recent interview.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Chaitanya announced their split on social media in October of last year. After dating for a few years, the couple married in 2017. They’ve collaborated on several films, and Chaitanya recently stated that his on-screen chemistry with Samantha was his favorite.
Chaitanya responded to a question about whether he and Samantha would be seen together on screen soon while speaking with Siddharth Kannan.”It’ll be a wild ride if it happens.” But I’m not certain; the only one who knows is the cosmos. “Let’s see,” he said, laughing. However, an on-screen reunion may be difficult because Samantha recently admitted that the two have strained relations.
Samantha stated earlier this month on Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee With Karan, “There are hard feelings like if you put the both of us in a room you have to conceal things that are sharp. Therefore, for the time being, the answer is yes. She went on to say that “it’s not an amicable arrangement right now.” It could happen in the future.”
Chaitanya recently addressed the focus on his personal life in an interview with News 18. “The noise (about my personal life) is louder than the noise (about the movies I make).” It’s unfortunate, but that’s the way the world is right now, and that’s how some sections of the media are reporting.”It’s great,” he said. “Everyone has their way.”
Laal Singh Chaddha, Chaitanya’s Bollywood debut, will be released on August 11. Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor star in the lead roles in the official adaptation of Forrest Gump. Advait Chandan directed the film.
