Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya have been making headlines ever since they announced their separation last week. There have been many speculations around what went wrong between the couple. The actress was being accused of many things. On Friday, she took to Twitter to address rumours surrounding her split with Naga Chaitanya and denied claims that she had affairs, abortions and that she never wanted children.
And now, the producer of the actress’ upcoming movie Shaakuntalam came out in support of her and revealed how Samantha was planning to start her family and even refused to be a part of the movie at first for it.
In an interaction with The News Minute, Neelima Guna said, “Last year itself, when my father-director Gunasekhar garu and I approached her for Shaakuntalam, she loved the story and was very excited by it, but told us that if she were to accept the role, the shooting should be completed by maximum July/August this year.”
Neelima further added, “She informed me that she was planning to start a family and that she wants to become a mother and that it would be her priority. She was a little apprehensive since period films take a lot of time, but we told her that due to the pre-production and proper planning that we have done, we would be able to accomplish the entire shoot within the time period and there would be no tensions whatsoever.”
“As soon as she heard that, she was very happy and on board this. She told me that this would be her last film and that after this, she wants to take a long break and have children, plan her family. Through the schedules also, we never took a break since we wanted to accommodate this request from her side,” she concluded.
Samantha and Naga Chaitanya got married in 2017. Sharing a note on Instagram, she wrote, “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 we 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.”
