Days after dropping the trailer, Samantha Ruth Prabhu revealed that she has been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Myositis. In a long note, Samantha said, “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.”
Talking about her struggle, Samantha Ruth Prabhu added, “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.”
Apart from Telugu, Yashoda will release in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada. Samantha Ruth Prabhu also has Shaakuntalam in her kitty. She was last seen alongside Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi in Kaathuvaakula Rendu Kaadhal.
