After releasing a joint statement together, the duo has been tight-lipped about it until a few days ago when Ruth Prabhu made her appearance on Koffee With Karan Season 7.
The actor was on fire and while she didn't talk about Chaitanya directly, she did highlight the idea of marriage and how it actually was among other things.
Now, Chaitanya is all set to make his debut in Bollywood as known with a prominent role in the Aamir Khan starrer, Laal Singh Chaddha.
In an at-length interview with ETimes, Chaitanya talked about the movie, Aamir Khan and Samantha as well.
About his role in the film, he said, "Just like in the original, Bubba and Forrest meet in the army and Bala and Laal, in our film, do the same, but our meeting happens during the Kargil war. We did a lot of training before we got into the shoot. The most extensive part of the training were the workshops and the reading sessions. I had received the script about six months in advance. Our director Advait (Chandan) took me through the lines because my Hindi wasn’t too good. Fortunately for me, the film required a Telugu boy who can speak Hindi. So, even if my Hindi slipped into a Telugu accent it was exactly what was required. They wanted me to drop a few Telugu words here and there. That was part of my character."
Talking about how social media affects personal lives and if that was the reason he chose to stay silent about his separation with Samantha, he said, "Whatever both of us wanted to say, we both put out a statement regarding that. That’s what I have always done with my personal life anyway. Things that I feel are crucial to be shared and put out, I do inform the media about it, whether it’s good or bad. I come out, tell the people about it through a statement and that’s it. In our case, Samantha has moved on, I’ve moved on and I don’t feel the need to inform the world about it, more than that.
My friends, family and the people who matter, they all know. And you see, news replaces news. All the speculation and conjecture is all very temporary. The more I react to it, the more news it will make. So I just stay chill about it, let it happen and it will all fade away hopefully."
As Chaitanya gets set for his Bollywood debut, Ruth Prabhu has multiple projects lined up ahead in the form of Shakuntalam, Yashoda and Kushi among others.
