tollywood couple Naga Chaitanya and Samantha Ruth Prabhu have been one of the most loved coupled as also arguably the most polarizing one in the history of the Telugu film industry. Telugu cinema fans adored Chay Sam when they were together, and after they separated, their individual fan-bases began slinging change at each other as the couple, too, started indulging in some mud-slinging of their own. However, neither their love story nor their subsequent split and acrimony may have occurred were things to turn out as Director Gautham Vasudev Menon had intended when first casting for 2010’s Ye Maaya ChesavOnde Chay and Sam had first met and fallen in love.

Mahesh Babu and not Naga Chaitany was GVM’s first choice

While promoting his upcoming movie, The Life of Muthu, filmmaker Gautham Menon took a small detour down memory lane, where he opened a nostalgic door back to Ye Maaya Chesave. As per a report in entertainment news website Tollywood.Net, GVM revealed that it was Mahesh Babu and not Naga Chaitanya who was his first choice for Ye Maaya Chesave.
