Back in October 2021, Samantha and Naga Chaitanya announced that they were separated. They ended their four-year marriage after irreconcilable differences. A recent interview of Nagarjuna went viral on social media. In the interview with Indiaglitz, Nagarjuna reportedly said, "It was Samantha's decision to go for the divorce and she applied first. Naga Chaitanya accepted her decision but he was more worried about me, what I would think and what would happen to the family's reputation. Naga Chaitanya consoled me as he thought I will be worried. They have been together for four years in their marriage life, but no problem like this came between them. They were so close and I don't know how it boiled down to this decision. They even celebrated New Year 2021 together. It looks like problems between them have arisen after that."
However, Nagarjuna has now taken to social media to reveal that his statement is false. He wrote,
The news in social media and electronic media quoting my statement about Samantha & Nagachaitanya is completely false and absolute nonsense!!
I request media friends to please refrain from posting rumors as news. #GiveNewsNotRumours
