Naga Chaitanya’s Shailaja Reddy Alludu and Samantha Akkineni’s U-Turn to release on September 13.

Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya are Tollywood’s most beloved couple with a huge fan following. The two actors are also busy with their own films throughout the year, and September 13 marks a special occasion for both of them. While Samantha’s Seema Raja and U-Turn are set to hit the screens on the same day, Naga Chaitanya’s Shailaja Reddy Alludu starring Anu Emmanuel and Ramya Krishnan is also slated to release on the same day.

Trade analyst Ramesh Bala had tweeted this would be a busy day at their household and also wished the couple for a hat-trick of hits. To this Samantha replied, “That would be most ideal wouldn’t it.”

A fan also replied to Chaitanya’s tweet about the release of his movie Shailaja Reddy Alludu and wrote, “It’s not #ChaySam. Now it is #ChayVsSam. @Samanthaprabhu2 who will win this #Sept13th.” To this, the actor replied, “It’s Chay with Sam !! Not vs,” and completed it with a heart-shaped emoticon.




Samantha has always been open about her bond with her husband and how the two maintain their work-life balance. She shares lovely moments from their life on Instagram and is a cheerleader for Chaitanya, and her father-in-law Nagarjuna on social media when their movies release. This is also reciprocated by both the men and has only resulted in the Akkineni family finding more love together among the audience.

This would be Naga Chaitanya’s first Telugu release of the year after the delay of Savyasachi, but Samantha has had three back-to-back hits with Rangasthalam, Mahanati and Irumbuthirai.
