The actress has been quite vocal about the physical and mental impact of disease on her health. Samantha is now back to work and she is shooting a health podcast.

Samantha said the acting break didn’t just help her to heal physically, it also helped her cope with self-loathing and low confidence.

Samantha Ruth Prabhu on taking an acting break due to Myositis

She told a leading magazine in an interview, “It was the best decision because there’s no way I would have been able to continue working. The stress of work, coupled with the condition, is not the easiest thing to handle. I’m really glad that I gave myself time to recover; I had been working for 13 years straight.”

Samantha also said that the break helped her cope with self-loathing and low confidence. “I’ve had my fair share of self-loathing and really low confidence, but I’ve always strived to grow as a person. With that growth came a deeper understanding of my insecurities and self-loathing. I was able to heal by addressing them – not by trying to fix them from the outside, but by fixing the inner trauma that needed more healing than any external quick fix.”

She also added that setbacks like these have made her a stronger person. “People might think that success defines you, but it is failure and loss that truly define you, and introduce you to the best version of yourself. These lows and these losses have made me a person I am truly proud of”.
