Naga Chaitanya to marry Samantha next year

Tollywood actor Naga Chaitanya, who is in a relationship with actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu has confirmed that he will tie the knot next year.

“It (marriage) should happen next year. My father will announce the date once it’s finalised. At the moment, I can’t divulge more information,” Chaitanya said.

The actor was in Chennai for the opening ceremony of Celebrity Badminton League (CBL). He, however, refused to comment on his relationship with Samantha.

Chaitanya’s father, popular actor Akkineni Nagarjuna, had recently admitted about the impending wedding and said that they were waiting for an “auspicious” time for the nuptials. Reportedly, the wedding date has been fixed and that it's likely to take place in the second half of next year.

Chaitanya and Samantha started together in films ‘Yem Maya Chesave’ and ‘Manam’. They duo fell in love while working for the film ‘Autonagar Surya’.

Meanwhile, Chaitanya is busy wrapping up Telugu action-thriller ‘Saahasam Swasaga Sagipo’ and is awaiting the release of ‘Premam’, the eponymous remake of Malayalam blockbuster. He has also signed an untitled project with director Kalyan Krishna, and it is slated to go on the floors later this year.
