Samantha Ruth Prabhu opened up about her year-long break from acting and called it her best decision.

Samantha Ruth Prabhu had taken a break from acting last year. She was last seen in Kushi. Samantha had announced that she was suffering from Myositis and was taking a break to get treatment. Recently, the actress opened up about her decision to not work for a year.

She told Femina in an interview, “It was the best decision because there’s no way I would have been able to continue working. The stress of work, coupled with the condition, is not the easiest thing to handle. I’m really glad that I gave myself time to recover; I had been working for 13 years straight.”

“I’ve had my fair share of self-loathing and really low confidence, but I’ve always strived to grow as a person. With that growth came a deeper understanding of my insecurities and self-loathing. I was able to heal by addressing them – not by trying to fix them from the outside, but by fixing the inner trauma that needed more healing than any external quick fix,” she said.

“Sometimes, being an actor makes your world very small and closed, there tends to be a group of ‘yes’ people around you who don’t usually tell you what is on their mind,” she said. Samantha added that now she is able to differentiate between trolling and constructive criticism. “I keep my eyes and ears open for constructive criticism, which I think is important for me as an actor and as a human being,” she said.

She is back to work now and has begun working on a health podcast. As for films, Samantha will be seen in the Indian version of Citadel which also stars Varun Dhawan and is helmed by Raj and DK. She will be playing the character of Honey Gambhir in the Indian adaptation of the American spy-thriller.
