A video featuring actor Naga Chaitanya and actress Samantha at a balcony of a star hotel has fuelled rumours that the "Manam" stars are in a live-in relationship.
During the promotion of one of her summer releases, Samantha had revealed that she was in love with a young hero from the Telugu film industry and that she would disclose his name at an appropriate time. Since then many speculations have been made about her boyfriend, with most fans voting for Naga Chaitanya as being the one. But neither of the two has either confirmed or refuted the rumours.
The video in question has been posted by a person named Harish Velagapudi. He posted the video on his Twitter handle on June 19 and wrote, "Akkineni samantha n chay nice pair." The video features a boy and girl who look like Naga Chaitanya and Samantha. The two are chatting and smoking in the balcony of a star hotel. Speculations about their live-in relationship became much more pronounced on the internet soon after this video popped up on Twitter. Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying that Samantha has shifted to Naga Chaitanya's flat in Gachibowli and someone took the video when the two came out for a smoke.
Another buzz is that Samantha has shifted to a hotel near Chaitanya's house. Samantha, who used to stay in Park Hyatt, has shifted to a hotel in Gachibowli, close to Chaitanya's house, another source told Deccan Chronicle.
Naga Chaitanya and Samantha first met each other on the sets of director Gautham Menon's 2010 "Ye Maaya Chesave", which was released in Tamil as "Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa." Both the versions were super hit at the box office and their chemistry was applauded by the audience. Later, they teamed up for movies like "Manam" (2014) and "Autonagar Surya" (2014).
