Tollywood sweethearts Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya’s wedding was the stuff of fairy-tales. We are still in the hangover of their beautiful wedding photos but the actors seemed to have moved on and kickstarted their married life with loads of happiness. While Naga Chaitanya has been quiet and reserved in expressing his love on social media, the chirpy and bubbly actor Samantha has been giving updates on her life to fans, every now and then. It was nothing less than a special moment for the fans and media to meet her during the promotions of Raju Gari Gadhi 2, where she turned up not like Samantha Ruth Prabhu but as Samantha Akkineni.

The actor has shared the screen space with her father-in-law, Nagarjuna Akkineni, in the film. And before people could witness their on-screen camaraderie, this off-screen Mava-Kodalu jodi has already received a thumbs-up. Talking about being an Akkineni, Deccan Chronicle quoted Samantha saying, “I know I am Akkineni Samantha from now onwards and I have to live up to the family’s legacy and reputation.”

Meanwhile, Raju Gari Gadhi 2, which released on October 12 at the theaters, is receiving love from the audience. Nagarjuna thanking the audience for such appreciation took to Twitter and wrote, “Thank u all for the love!!” He also shared two adorable moments with Samantha during the wedding.
