Two receptions for Chay, Sam
By the looks of it, two receptions will be held for newlyweds Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Akkineni. According to a source, Chaitanya’s mother Lakshmi is planning a reception in Chennai this month as she resides there.
“This is only for family and close friends as she wants to make it a private affair,” says the source. The entire Daggubati family, along with her friends, are likely to attend the Chennai reception. Post that, Nagarjuna is planning a big do in Hyderabad for the industry.
“The marriage happened only in the presence of family members; so Nag is planning a big reception for the industry people and his friends in Hyderabad in the first week of November,” added the source.
The dates of the two events may be out once Chay and Sam work out their shoot schedules.
