Actor Naga Chaitanya has opened up about his divorce with ex-wife and actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu by saying that ‘if she is happy, then I’m happy.’
As reported by Hindustan Times, during a media interaction for promotions of his film ‘Bangarraju’, the actor said, “It is ok to be separated. That is a mutual decision made for their individual happiness. If she is happy, then I am happy. So divorce is the best decision in such a situation.”
In December in an interview with Filmfare, Prabhu too spoke about her divorce, she said, "I still have to live my life'. I know I'm still going to live my life and with all the issues that I now faced in my personal life, I was surprised at how strong I was. I thought I was a much weaker person. I thought that with my separation, I would crumble and die. I didn't think I was capable of being this strong...Today I'm very very proud of how strong I'm because I really didn't know I was.”
The ex-couple issued a statement on October 2 announcing the news of their separation on social media, the post read “After much deliberation and thought Sam 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."
