CHENNAI: Actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu informed that she is been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition Myositis and thanked her fans for overwhelming response for Yashoda trailer.
The 'Family Man' actress took to her Instagram handle to break the news, which has put her fans into dismay.
Sharing a picture from what look liked a dubbing session 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," her post read.
However she was confident of recovery and continued, "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."
The actress' Yashoda trailer released yesterday, it fetched a roaring reception from the audience. The film is likely about surrogacy.
