Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu made headlines last month after the couple announced their divorce in a joint statement on social media. The duo parted ways after four years of their marriage and released a statement on Instagram. The estranged couple mentioned that no matter what, they will cherish the times they spent with each other. During the course of her marriage, Samantha has reportedly never done skin shows, in fact, she did select roles in films as she did not want to disrespect the Akkineni family with her choices.
Now, as per the latest report in Bollywoodlife.com, Samantha, recently, agreed to do an item number in Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna’s upcoming film ‘Pushpa’. The shooting for the song will start in the last week of this month. The report added that Samantha agreed to do an item number shortly after her separation with Naga, which has now made netizens feel that Chaitanya might be was orthodox and might have imposed restrictions on his then-wife.
#samantharuthprabhu has been trending on Twitter with netizens having a mixed reaction to this. While some users opined that Samantha never took up any such roles in films, a few others supported Chaitanya and said that if he was orthodox he would have not agreed to marry a heroine.
For the uninitiated, Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who got married in 2017, announced their separation on October 2, 2021. An excerpt from the statement read, “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.
