Actor Naga Chaitanya has spoken about why he chose to stay silent after his separation from his ex-wife, actor Samantha Ruth Prabhu. In a new interview, Chaitanya said that what he thought needed to be shared was put out in a statement. He also shared that both of them have ‘moved on in their lives. Chaitanya also called it ‘frustrating’ that his personal life ‘makes for a bigger headline’ than his professional achievements.
Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu announced their separation in October last year. They took to their respective social media accounts and issued statements. “To all our well-wishers. After much deliberation and thought Chay and I have decided to part ways as husband and wife to pursue our own paths. We are fortunate to have a friendship of over a decade that was the very core of our relationship which we believe will always hold a special bond between us. We request our fans, well-wishers and the media to support us during this difficult time and give us the privacy we need to move on. Thanking you for your support,” Samantha wrote.
Speaking with Times of India, Chaitanya said, “Unfortunately, it’s a part of this job where your personal space also becomes a narrative. That’s the baggage that this job carries. It’s my responsibility to be affected by it or not. Every celebrity needs to take that call, actually. It does become frustrating that my personal life makes for a bigger headline than my professional achievements. But I guess, I just need to keep working harder on my profession. The personal life bits will come and go.”
