Samantha Ruth Prabhu has changed her name on Twitter to Samantha Akkineni.

Samantha Ruth Prabhu got married to her long time beau Chaitanya Akkineni on October 6. On Wednesday, the actor changed her name on Twitter to Samantha Akkineni and fans can’t stop applauding her. Most of them wrote this showed how the actor “respects Indian culture”.

One of them tweeted, “#SamanthaAkkineni aww sam u really proved how much u respects the indian culture ur really great sam... lv u,” another tweeted, “Love you sweetheart @Samanthaprabhu2 #SamanthaRuthPrabhu to #SamanthaAkkineni 🤗🤗😇😇 That’s th way to see life Loving u mohhhh Sam.”

Samantha’s close friend, stylist Neeraja Kona also pulled her leg and tweeted, “@Samanthaprabhu2 SAMANTHA AKKINENI... I see that I see that papaaaaa .”

The actor has taken Chaitanya’s family name as surname on Twitter, but will her credits before film change too? Well, we can confirm this Friday as her first film after her wedding, Raju Gari Gadhi 2, is slated to release on the silver screen. The film also stars her father-in-law Nagarjuna in the lead role.

She will also be seen in Mersal, paired opposite Vijay. The much-anticipated film is set to release for Diwali next week. It is going to be interesting to see how her role as a ghost in Raju Gari Gadhi 2 will be accepted in comparison to her role as a girl who comes across as a brat in the trailer of Mersal.
