Actor Naga Chaitanya, who announced his separation from his wife Samantha Ruth Prabhu in October last year, says he has the best on-screen chemistry with anyone other than his ex-wife. In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, she replied ‘Samantha’ when she was asked by the publication about their best onscreen chemistry. The actor is all set to make his Bollywood debut with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha. He told the publication that among the Bollywood actresses he would love to work with are Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone.
“I love his performance. So if I ever get a chance I would love to share screen space with him somehow.”
Recently, Telugu superstar and Chaitanya’s father Nagarjuna said that he was “very worried” for his son after his divorce from Samantha. While Samantha had, on several occasions, addressed the rumours by blaming her for the divorce, Chaitanya had recently commented on it.
Nagarjuna spoke about how graciously his son handled himself during his separation from Samantha. Speaking to Subhash K Jha for Firstpost, Nagarjuna said, “I am very proud of how calm he has remained amidst all this. He was not provoked to utter a single word. Like any father, I was very concerned for him. But he was more concerned about me than I was about him. He used to ask me, ‘Are you okay, Dad?’ And I’d be like, err, ‘Isn’t this what I should be asking you?'”
Meanwhile, while talking to a few reporters during the promotions of his upcoming film Bangaraju, Naga Chaitanya talks about his and Samantha’s divorce. He said that if he is happy, he is happy. He said that divorce was the best decision at this point of time.
“It is okay to separate. It is a mutual decision made for their personal happiness. If she is happy then I am happy. So divorce is the best decision in such a situation,” he said in Telugu, as translated by Hindustan Times has gone.
Samantha was last seen in the dance number Oo Antwa in Allu Arjun’s film Pushpa. He has several projects in the pipeline.
