Naga Chaitanya denies slapgate with Kajal Aggarwal

Kajal is a dear friend, he says. Ahem

We recently brought you a juicy tidbit about the off-screen slap that Kajal Agarwal planted on the cheeks of the Akkineni scion Naga Chaitanya. Just two weeks after the reported incident, the actor is now rubbishing the reports while stoutly defending his co-star.

At a press meet to announce the release of his next venture Dhada, Naga Chaitanya categorically denied any conflict of interest with Kajal and kept repeating that he was actually good friends with his leading lady. “I am not sure where these rumours are coming from, but I can assure you that Kajal is a dear friend and a wonderful co-star,” he said. He also insisted that such reports only spoil the good rapport they share. “I have no differences with Kajal. She is a very cooperative star and there is no truth in the media reports about a clash between us,” the young actor added.

Naga also talked about Dhada which releases on August 12. He praised director Ajay’s work and was quick to quote, “There will be extremely stylish action sequences and the movie will be an out-and-out mass entertainer. I know director Ajay since the last three years and he has done a fantastic job.”
