The south diva, Samantha Akkineni is all set to appear in the Lakme Fashion Week show on October 8. Samantha took to an Instagram account to share a gorgeous picture of her and can be seen supporting her favorite fashion label. Interestingly, this post marked her first appearance on Instagram since announcing her separation from her husband Naga Chaitanya last week.
Samantha can be seen donning a white dress in the dimly-lit picture. Also, she posed with pink and white flowers in her hair. Samantha captioned the post - “Songs of old love - the sound of the winter breeze on the mountains and cliff, songs of lost and found images. Sound of the melancholic echo in the valley and songs of old lovers. Sound of the wind in the old bungalows, stairways, and alleys. Watch out for my favorite @ekaco's show on Friday, Sustainable Fashion Day, 8th October at 7 pm at FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week”. The fans are pouring their love on posts and praising in the comment section.
Samantha officially announces on social media about her separation and wrote in an Instagram post that -“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.”
However, Chaitanya and his father, the megastar Nagarjuna Akkineni also shared a similar post on their respective social media accounts about their separation. Nagarjun wrote a very emotional note, which read - "With a heavy heart let me say this! Whatever happened between Sam and Chay is very unfortunate. What happens between a wife and husband is very personal. Sam and Chay both are dear to me. My family will always cherish the moments spent with Sam and she will always be dear to us! May God bless them both with strength.”
