Samantha Ruth Prabhu Reflects on Challenges Amid Failed Marriage, Health Scare, and Box Office Setback: A Triple Whammy

Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who is currently on a break from acting, has spoken openly about her battle with myositis in interviews and social media posts. In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar India, she reflected on the challenges she faced, both personally and professionally, over the past two years. She also spoke about her “failed marriage” and her films not performing well commercially. Samantha was previously married to actor Naga Chaitanya.

Samantha Ruth Prabhu candidly reflected on the challenges she faced over the past two years, including her “failed marriage,” health problems, and professional setbacks. She described it as a “triple whammy,” but found strength in the stories of other actors who had overcome adversity. Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya tied the knot in October 2017 and ended their marriage in October 2021. Since then, Naga Chaitanya has been linked to Sobhita Dhulipala, while Samantha has focused on her health and work.

Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s latest release, Shaakuntalam (2023), despite its grandeur, VFX, and larger-than-life storytelling, tanked at the box office. The Gunasekhar directorial, dubbed and released in Tamil and Hindi, grossed less than ₹10 crore in its global opening weekend, reportedly the lowest opening for a film made on a budget of over ₹50 crore.

Samantha Ruth Prabhu has been on a prolonged hiatus from films since July, focusing on regaining her health and seeking additional treatment for myositis. Last year, she also took a break from work after being diagnosed with this rare autoimmune disease while filming her Telugu film Kushi.

In the meantime, Samantha is using her time away from the spotlight to focus on her well-being. She is following a strict treatment plan and making lifestyle changes to support her recovery. She is also spending time with her loved ones and pursuing her other interests, such as reading and writing.

Samantha’s fans are eagerly awaiting her return to the screen. They know that she is a talented actress with a bright future ahead of her. They are also confident that she will overcome her health challenges and emerge stronger than ever.
