In an interview to IBTimes in 2016, Samantha spoke about their relationship and marriage plans. “Chay (Naga Chaitanya) and I are in a relationship and the reason we’re not talking about marriage is because even the immediate family would know about the wedding only three months before. Why should I talk about marriage to the media when there’s still time? We have our parents’ blessings and there’s nothing to hide. We have a friendship and relationship as long as my career right from my first film. I’m extremely happy,” she said.
In September last year, Chaitanya, also had confirmed that they plan to tie the knot in 2017.
“It (marriage) should happen next year (2017). My father will announce the date once it’s finalised. At the moment, I can’t divulge more information,” Chaitanya had told IANS.
The star couple, who have worked together in films like Manam, Autonagar Suriya and Ye Maaya Chesave, reportedly started dating in 2015.
Here are a few photographs of the lovely couple from Samantha’s Instagram account.
