Samantha Ruth Prabhu

Actor Samantha Ruth Prabhu took to Twitter on Tuesday, 21 June, to express disappointment over media reports alleging the involvement of her PR team in spreading rumours about her ex-husband Naga Chaitanya.

Rumours about Chaitanya and Made In Heaven actor Sobhita Dhulipala dating have been making rounds on social media lately.

The Tollywood hero’s fans have accused Samantha’s PR team of spreading these rumours.

Some of the fans expressed their resentment towards her through social media and said that the rumours were aimed to affect Chaitanya’s movie Thank You, which is set to be released next month.

Samantha put an end to all that through her tweets on Tuesday, saying she and Chaitanya have moved on. She also urged the fan to follow suit.

She wrote: “Rumours on girl – Must be true !! Rumours on boy – Planted by girl !! Grow up guys .. Parties involved have clearly moved on .. you should move on too !! Concentrate on your work … on your families .. move on!!” (sic)

Chaitanya tight-lipped over rumours

An exclusive report on Pinkvilla stated that Chaitanya have been seen with Dhulipala at his Jubilee Hills house.

It added that they seemed very comfortable with each other, and speculated that they were dating.

Dhulipala was most recently seen on screen in the Telugu film Major, the biopic of martyr Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, played by actor Adivi Sesh and produced by Mahesh Babu.

Chaitanya, however, has not responded to the rumours.

He was tight-lipped on the topic despite being asked repeatedly about it during the promotion of his upcoming film.

Separated in 2021

Samantha and Chaitanya announced their separation in a joint statement in October 2021 after four years of marriage.

Part of the statement read: “To all our well wishers. After much deliberation and thought Sam and I have decided to part ways as husband and wife to pursue our own paths.” (sic)

On the work front, Samantha is currently shooting for multiple projects including her Hollywood debut

Arrangements of Love with BAFTA-winner Philip John.
