Addressing her fans via Instagram Stories, Samantha shared a heartfelt video message expressing her excitement about returning to work.

Samantha’s passion for the endeavor shone through as she eagerly anticipated its release next week, hoping it would be beneficial to her audience. She concluded with a sense of fulfillment, expressing her enjoyment in the podcast’s creation.
In July of last year, Samantha Ruth Prabhu made the decision to put her acting projects on hold for a minimum of one year to prioritize her health. During this time, she underwent treatment for her autoimmune condition, Myositis, in the United States, and embarked on travels around the globe. According to insider information, Samantha had made the choice to take a break from acting a few months prior, intending to complete her ongoing commitments such as “Kushi” with Vijay Deverakonda and the Indian segment of “Citadel” with Varun Dhawan. A recent conversation with her revealed that she had abstained from signing any new projects, focusing entirely on her well-being.
On the professional front, Samantha’s most recent appearance was in “Kushi,” her second Telugu collaboration with actor Vijay Devarakonda, marking their onscreen reunion since the 2018 hit “Mahanati.” Released on September 1 of the previous year, the film garnered attention for their dynamic chemistry. Additionally, Samantha had also completed filming the Indian segment of the Russo Brothers’ highly anticipated web series, “Citadel,” showcasing her versatility across different mediums.
