Samantha Remains Christian: Chaitu clarifies
Hyderabad: Tollywood star Naga Chaitanya Akkineni clarified that his fiancée Samantha did not convert to Hinduism. She remains a Christian. He said he is not bothered about her cast. There were concerted rumours that there was a ceremony at Annapurna studios in which Chaitanya and Samantha were seen wearing bindi. He said it was true both of them attended a function at the studios but there was no conversion ritual.
Chaitanya disclosed that he informed his father Nagarjuna about his love affair with Samantha. Only then did he tell his mother. ‘My friends knew about it even before I told my dad’, he told media persons. He said he and Samantha did not exchange any gifts saying we are gifts to each other. ‘Premam’, in which Chetu and Samantha acted in the lead roles, is their latest movie. Produced by Suryadevara Nagavamsi, the film is directed by Chandu Mondati. A fan of Nag, Chandu agreed to the proposal of Chaitanya to remake a Malayali classic, Premam’.
I and Samantha discuss the endless rumours appearing in social media. We don’t give them undue importance. When Akhil revealed his love affair, dad and I were shocked. He is bolder than me though younger, he commented.
