Samantha and Siddharth's relationship is one of the hottest topic for rumour mongers in Tollywood. Talking to Deccan Chronicle, Samantha declined to spill the beans on their love affair. She said, "I don't deny that we have been spotted together. He is my closest friend. I'll open up about our relationship when the time is right." The actress added, "I want to make it clear to my directors and producers that I'm not going to get married for another three years."
Samantha and Siddharth fell in love after they met each other on the sets of their first combo movie Jabaradasth in 2012. The speculations about their relationship started doing rounds after they were spotted offering pooja with their parents at the Kalahasti temple on March 16, 2013. Though they were seen going around together on several occasions after this incident, they continue to keep it under wraps.
