After Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya announced their separation, the reports of the Akkineni actor dating actress Sobhita Dhulipala were going viral for some time. These speculations went rife after Chay and Sobhita were spotted at a restaurant in London.
Amid this backdrop, an online media house posted that Samantha had reacted to the rumours. The report stated Sam as saying: “I am not bothered as to who is in a relationship with whom. Those who do not know the value of love will be left in tears irrespective of the number of people they date. At least that girl should be happy. If he changes his behaviour and looks after the girl without hurting her, it will be good for everyone.”
As soon as the news went viral, the Rangasthalam actress denied it and said that she said nothing like that.
After four years of marriage, Samantha and Chaitanya separated in 2021. The couple shared screen space in the movies: Majili, Ye Maaya Chesave and Autonagar Surya.
