A week after she announced her separation with Naga Chaitanya, Telugu star Samantha took to Instagram Friday to share a quote on how actions of men and women are seen through a different lens by society. Samantha shared this quote with an innocent ‘Good morning’. The quote read, “If matters are constantly morally questionable when done by women, but not even morally questioned when done by men – then we, as a society, fundamentally have no morals. – Farida D.”

The note 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. 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. Thank you for your support.”

So, it all went smoothly. This is not a blind item. We all know who I am talking about,” she wrote in another status,” she wrote.
Naga Chaitanya’s father, superstar Nagarjuna Akkineni, shared a note shortly after the couple announced their split. It read, “With a heavy heart let me say this! Whatever happened between Sam and Chay is very unfortunate. What happens between a wife and husband is very personal. Sam and Chay, both are dear to me. My family will always cherish the moments spent with Sam and she will always be dear to us. May God bless them both with strength.”
