Samantha Ruth Prabhu has been keeping herself away from work for the past few months. She has been enjoying this time of vacay and healing herself from her diagnosis of Myositis. However, she never forgets to interact with her fans from time to time on social media and give them a little bit of insight into her life and her healing.
Recently during an Ask Me Anything session with her fans on Instagram, Samantha Ruth Prabhu was asked the secret behind her clear skin, and her reply simply floored everyone as it was so genuine and came from a place of no show-off. She said, “It's absolutely not (clear). Chinmayi (the singer, who owns a skincare brand), is going to fix that. She has promised that she is going to make my skin glossy. Actually because of my issue (Myositis), I had to be on much of steroids. I had to do a lot of steroid shots. So, it really messed up my skin and gave me a lot of pigmentation. So, this is filter guys (sic).”
For the unversed, Samantha Ruth Prabhu was diagnosed last year with Myositis. She had written, “Your response to the Yashoda trailer was overwhelming. It is this love and connection that I share with all of you, that gives me the strength to deal with the seemingly unending challenges that life throws at me. A few months back I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Myositis. I was hoping to share this after it had gone into remission. But it is taking a little longer than I hoped. I am slowly realising that we don't always need to put up a strong front. Accepting this vulnerability is something that I am still struggling with. The doctors are confident that I will make a complete recovery very soon. I have had good days and bad days.... physically and emotionally.... and even when it feels like I can't handle one more day of this, somehow that moment passes. I guess it can only mean that I am one more day closer to recovery. I love you. This too shall pass (sic).”
On the work front, Samantha Ruth Prabhu was last seen in ‘Kushi’, which was released earlier this month. She will next be seen in the Indian leg of the global franchise ‘Citadel’.
