Tollywood's celebrity couple and Internet favourites Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya, son of Tollywood's Top Indian Actor Akkineni Nagarjuna Rao, have ended weeks of speculation and announced their separation after 4 years of marriage.

Akkineni Naga Chaitanya is an Indian actor working in Telugu cinema. For his performances in various films, Chaitanya has won numerous awards including Filmfare Award South for Best Debut, Nandi Award for Best Supporting Actor and SIIMA award for Best Actor Critics.

Samantha is an Indian actress who has established a career in the Telugu and Tamil film industries. She has appeared in more than 45 films and received several awards including four Filmfare Awards, 2 Nandi Awards, 6 South Indian International Movie Awards, and 3 CineMAA Awards.

Samantha and Naga Chaitanya got married in Goa in 2017. The couple, prominently known as ChaySam, confirmed the news in an official statement from Naga Chaitanya, shared by Samantha, which they released on Saturday. They requested their fans and media to allow them privacy. 

In the statement addressed to "our well-wishers", Naga Chaitanya said: "After much deliberation and thought, Sam 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."

Samantha and Naga Chaitanya were first appeared together in Gautham Menon's iconic 2010 Telugu film, 'Ye Maaya Chesave'.

Naga Chaitanya added in the shared statement: "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."

The controversy over the dissolution of the marriage was heated last month after Samantha dumped 'Akkineni' on her Twitter account, but no one directed the rumors directly.
