Naga Chaitanya is currently gearing up for his Bollywood debut and his fans will soon witness the release of his upcoming film with Aamir Khan's titled 'Laal Singh Chaddha.' Although, his personal life has been under scrutiny from the media. His split with actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu has been covered and spoken extensively in media, and now the actor has shared his view on media reporting.
Meanwhile, during a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, Naga Chaitanya spoke about what really bothers him. He said, "The only thing that bothers me is if they write anything about my family. That is the only thing. I am also okay if they write about me. I always think, unless there is fruit on the tree, they won’t throw stones, right?”
He further added that he’s okay with media reporting and asserted that he doesn’t respond to it until it sends misleading information about the family.
He contended, “One way of looking at it is, it is the media’s job to report and write what they have to write. That defines the kind of media they are, that’s their job. But at the same time, I don’t have to react to it, it’s up to me. Like dad (Nagarjuna) said unless it is something about family or something personal that needs to be corrected, correct it. Otherwise, it’s okay, don’t react. News replaces news, tomorrow it’s forgotten.”
In a previous interaction with Film Companion, Naga was asked about the actors’ responsibility of saying no to 'sexist' songs and movies. He said, “We have to somewhere reflect our thought and be responsible in a way. For everyone, that boundary changes. I don't know what it is for my colleagues but for me, if I'm directly portraying something wrong about women or society in a way, I would definitely not want to do it."
