There was a time when Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya were called the golden couple of Tollywood. They had it all, perfect social media PDA moments, adorable couple hashtag (Hello #ChaySam!) and massive fan following. However, perhaps they forgot to put a nazar ka tikka on their relationship! Recently, the two announced their separation and left everyone in shock. 

The couple shared a common statement to confirm media reports about the ‘trouble in paradise’. The statement reads, “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 will 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. (sic)”

While are still trying to process their sad news, let’s look back at their relationship timeline!

When Chay Met Sam

The two met on the sets of their film Yeh Maaya Chesave in 2009 and instantly connected. At the time, Chay was dating Shruti Haasan and Sam was in a relationship with Rang De Basanti fame Siddharth. In an old interview, the Oh Baby! actress shared, “When I came to the sets of Ye Maaya Chesave, I was young, naive and had no idea how my future was going to turn out. But I met this boy who was sweet and honest and I liked him instantly.”

In 2014 they met again on the sets of Autonagar and fell in love. From flirting on Twitter to their social outings, their relationship was perhaps the worst kept secret in Tollywood.

Family’s Approval

In 2015, Naga Chaitanya’s father, Nagarjuna, confirmed that his son had found someone special. At the time the entire social media was buzzing with #ChaySam posts though the couple didn’t confess to anything.

In The Public Eye

Samantha confessed to being in a relationship with Naga Chaitanya in 2016. In an interview, she said, “We became close from the time when we did our first film together in 2010, though at that time I didn’t know I was going to marry him. He was with me when I left for the US with just 30 dollars in my purse. So he has been a very important part of my journey as a human being and an actress. Now when I am all set to marry him, there is no uncertainty about my future”
