On October 2, Samantha and Naga Chaitanya announced that they are heading for divorce by mutual consent. In their statement, Samantha and Naga Chaitanya did not reveal the reason behind their divorce. Soon after their announcement, Samantha was subjected to a lot of trolling. Recently, a retired doctor told a YouTube channel that Samantha had two abortions, which he claimed was the reason behind their divorce. Samantha took to social media to trash rumors about extra0marital affairs and abortions. She also added that nothing can break her.
In a recent interview with an entertainment portal, Shaakuntalam producer Neelima Guna said that Samantha was planning to have a baby after the film's completion. She said that Samantha asked if the film could be wrapped up by July or August this year so that she can plan for a baby with Naga Chaitanya accordingly. According to her, Samantha planned to take a long break from work, have a baby and start a family with Naga Chaitanya. In an earlier interview in 2018, Samantha revealed that she would quit films when she decides to have a baby as the child is going to need her full attention.
