Actor Naga Chaitanya, who has admitted that he’s in a relationship with Samantha Ruth Prabhu and is planning to marry her next year, says he is extremely proud of her growth as an actress.
Although Chaitanya and Samantha have been seeing each other for a long time, it wasn’t until a few months ago that their relationship came into the limelight.
“I’m a very private person and I never felt the need to speak about my relationship in public. My friends have known about it for a long time. Then, when we informed our families, they supported our decision. We plan to get married next year,” Naga Chaitanya told IANS.
Refusing to talk about how it all started, Chaitanya said he won’t stop Samantha from acting after marriage.
“I don’t think I’d ever tell her what she should and shouldn’t do. I’m proud of her growth as an actress and I will encourage her to continue working. It was through sheer talent and hard work she got where she is today. I don’t think she should throw away her successful career because of marriage,” he explained.
He also clarified it’s not because of their relationship that Samantha walked out of upcoming Tamil gangster drama “Vada Chennai”.
