In an interview with India.com, Naga Chaitanya said, “On Koffee With Karan, if I get a chance, why not? Karan Johar is great, I love his work. If he wants to have me, why not? “
Talking about his personal life, Chaitanya said, “I have built myself in a way where my personal life does not affect my professional life. When your personal life is at the forefront of the media and not your professional life becomes the headline, it gets a little upsetting and depressing. You don’t like it when your personal and professional life are linked. I don’t add it and I have created a very clear barrier between the two. So, sometimes it hurts to see people linking my personal life with my films… or what anyone said or what happened. But unfortunately, it’s the same today and I just teach myself to work harder… (focus more) on my work and make sure my work shines and in the end, it will.”

She also said, “It’s been tough but now it’s good. I’m stronger.” After Karan Johar asked, “Do you guys have hard feelings?” Samantha replied, “There are hard feelings like if you keep the two of us in the same room you have to hide sharp objects. So for now, yes. It’s not an amicable situation right now. It could be in the future.” Last year, Samantha and Chaitanya ended their nearly four-year-long marriage.
