Samantha diagnosed with Myositis, actor pens an emotional note


CHENNAI: Samantha has made a shocking revelation that she has been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Myositis on social media platforms, along with a picture of her dubbing for Yashoda, while taking medicine through IV. 

She also added that her doctors are confident that she would make a complete recovery very soon.

Samantha wrote, "Your response to the Yashodha 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."

She ended the note with a hopeful note that the hard phase shall pass. "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."

On the work front, she has films like Shakunthalam and Kushi in various stages of production. (THE NEW INDIAN EXPRESS)
