Samantha Ruth Prabhu who recently got married to her longtime beau Chaitanya Akkineni, changed her name on all her existing social media accounts. Samantha Ruth Prabhu is officially Samantha Akkineni now!
Although it is a custom to change the woman’s surname to that of her husband’s after marriage, most of the Gen X women are against this practice. Many of the married women on social media continue to use their original surnames.
Some married actress prefers to add their Husband’s last name after their original name, example: Aishwarya Rai Bachan, Kareena Kapoor Khan.
However, Samantha has completely changed her last name to Akkineni now. This is her way of telling the media and fans to refer her as Samantha Akkineni from now.
Samantha Akkineni will be seen along with her father in law Nagarjuna Akkineni in her upcoming film Raju Gari Gadhi 2 that is hitting the screens on this Friday.
