At the event, the Arjun Reddy actor shared about the phase of her low health. He stated, “She struggled a lot with the film. We started this film in April 2022 with a smile on our faces. We had completed 60 percent. Only 30-35 percent of shooting was pending. By July, Sam’s health condition deteriorated. She said that her health wasn’t good. Shiva and I were like “You look beautiful. What problem do you have?” We took it lightly. Later, we understood her plight.”
Vijay further said that she stopped talking to them because of her ill health. He added, “I told Sam that we are actors and that we are storytellers. I felt we did not have to talk about our struggles in the open. After a point, Samantha felt it was her responsibility to talk about her health. She stopped talking to us and she stopped seeing all of us. Samantha was extremely unwell. She fought so many battles. At that point, she decided to share it with everyone, just to tell people that there’s hope.”
