Samantha Ruth Prabhu's performance-driven roles have helped her amass an enormous number of fans.

Sam has spoken out about her struggle with Myositis, an autoimmune disease, 

Putting an end to rumours about her health problems.

"It is this love and connection that I share with all of you, that gives me the strength to deal .

The seemingly endless 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.

It is taking a little longer than I hoped.

Even in those moments when I feel like I can't endure another day like this, they eventually pass.

It must only indicate that I am one day closer to recovery, I suppose.
