Telugu film actor Akkineni Naga Chaitanya confirms his marriage with actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu. Naga Chaitanya confirmed the marriage at a Celebrity Badminton League (CBL) function. He is the brand Ambassador for Tollywood Thunders.
Earlier in July, actor Akkineni Nagarjuna and his wife Amala had said that they were happy with their son’s choice and would soon announce further wedding details.

A leading daily has earlier quoted a source as saying, “Chaitanya and Samantha have been seeing each other for a while now. Parents of both the actors have recently met and given their consent.

Nagarjuna was earlier quoted by a daily as saying, “Amala and I are very happy for Chaitanya, who has found someone who makes him happy. We’ll be making the announcement soon. Akhil too is seeing a girl. But contrary to rumours, they are not engaged as yet.”
