Akkineni Naga Chaitanya on rumours of separation with Samantha Ruth Prabhu

For over a month now, rumours have been rife that popular South couple Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya have separated. Now, actor Naga Chaitanya has opened up about how he has managed to shut out such rumours while making public appearances and promoting his forthcoming film, 'Love Story'. In a recent interview, when asked how he manages to stay focussed amid so much of attention on his personal life, he said that he learnt how to separate the professional and the personal very early on in his career. He said and I quote, 'I think from a very early time in my career, I sort of kept my personal life personal and my professional life professional. I never mixed the both. I've always had this habit that I learned from my parents as I was growing up, I always noticed once they came home, they never spoke about work. And when they went to work, their personal life was never diluting into work. It was a very nice balance that they maintained, which I always observed.' Furthermore, when asked if he is affected by the 24/7 coverage of his personal life, he continued, 'Initially, yes, '. I was like ‘why is entertainment heading this way?’ But after that, what I've learned is that in today's age, news replaces news. Today there's one news, tomorrow there's another news, today's news is forgotten. But in my grandfather's time, there were magazines, and magazines used to come once in a month. And that news sustained till you got the next piece of news. But today you're getting the next piece of news the next second or the next minute. It doesn't stay in people's minds for too long. The actual news, the news that matters, will stay. But the superficial news, the news that is used to create TRPs, is forgotten. Once I made this observation, it stopped affecting me.' Rumours of Naga Chaitanya's separation from Samantha first made rounds when the actress dropped ‘Akkineni’ from her social media accounts and changed it to ‘S’. Just a week back, Samantha was papped lashing out at a journalist who was curious about her marriage.
