Naga Chaitanya and Samantha’s films

Chaitanya and Samantha first acted together in the 2010 film Ye Maaya Chesave; their last film was the 2019 film Majili. They worked together in Autonagar Surya and Manam, with Chaitanya featuring in a cameo in Oh! Baby.

But Manam was special as they shot for the film when they were dating. The fantasy drama that hinges on the concept of rebirth and the long-lasting impression of love starred everyone from the family, including Akkineni Nageswara Rao (ANR), Nagarjuna, Amala and Akhil, apart from Amitabh Bachchan, Shriya Saran, Brahmanandam, Ali, Raashii Khanna and Lavanya Tripathi.

Manam was the last film ANR acted in before his passing in January 2014. The film was released in May of that year.

Upcoming work

Chaitanya will soon be seen in Chandoo Mondeti’s Thandel with Sai Pallavi as his co-star. Nagarjuna will star in Sekhar Kammula’s Kubera with Dhanush, Rashmika Mandanna and Jim Sarbh. Samantha will be seen in Raj & DK’s web-series Citadel: Honey Bunny with Varun Dhawan.
