Samantha Ruth Prabu breaks down as she talks about her struggle with an autoimmune disease called myositis. ‘There are days when I feel like I can’t go one step further. And there are days when I look back, I’m surprised I’ve come so far,” she said.

Before the release of Yashoda, Samantha Ruth Prabhu began promoting the film with a series of media interactions. On Monday, she took to her social media pages to post about the importance of ‘showing up’ no matter how tough life gets. “Shower, Shave, Show up,” Samantha said in her post.

Samantha suffers from an autoimmune disease called myositis. A few weeks ago, she revealed her struggle with the disease. She is not letting her health issues come in the way of her professional commitments. While she has always hired voice artists to dub her lines in films, she wanted to change that practice for this film.

For me, dubbing in Telugu was a bit difficult as I come from Chennai. Every artist wants to dub for themselves after giving everything to their performance. I always had that wish but now I have also developed confidence about my hold on the Telugu language. I worked on it,” said Samantha in an interview with popular TV anchor Soma.

But, Samantha’s health condition and her ongoing treatment added to her challenges. “It was difficult time for me when I did the dubbing for Yashoda. Given that the release date was announced already, I had to dub in a very difficult health condition. But, I’m a bit adamant. Once I committed to dub for myself, I wanted to do it. I’m glad I did it,” she added.

Here’s the video:

In Yashoda, she plays a surrogate mother who takes on a crime syndicate of medical professionals. And she noted that she could identify with Yashoda’s struggle. “When I naturally choose a role, I see something of myself in it. Yashoda comes from humble beginnings with big dreams. So am I. She is as determined as I am. Yashoda has enough in this film. One has to face difficulties and fight and survive them. I’m right now in a difficult position. I hope to survive as well,” she added.

Samantha breaks down as she talks about her experience with the disease. “Some days are good, and some days are bad. There are days when I feel like I can’t go one step further. And there are days when I look back and wonder. That I’ve come this far. I’m here to fight. I’m not alone, I know. There are a lot of people who are fighting a lot of battles. We win in the end,” she added.

In a lighter vein, Samantha also poked fun at some news headlines that made her condition look more dire than it actually is. “I also saw a lot of articles saying that my condition was life-threatening. The stage I’m in is not life-threatening. It’s difficult, but I’m here to fight. At least for the time being, I’m not going to die,” she quipped.
