Samantha Ruth Prabhu is all set to take a break from work to prioritize her health. Despite facing health issues, she has dedicatedly fulfilled her work commitments, but now wants to take a well-deserved hiatus to focus on her well-being and undergo treatment for her autoimmune condition, Myositis.

A source close to the actor informed us, Sam is definitely going on a break, but only for a few months to focus on her health as she had one crazy year with back-to-back shoots. She will kick start prepping for her new projects soon after the short break.”

Her publicist, Mahendra, too confirmed the news to Indian Express and said, “It’s true that Samantha won’t be taking on any new projects for one year as she is all set to leave for the USA for the treatment of her autoimmune condition, Myositis. If her condition improves earlier than expected, she may return within six months. However, the planned duration of her break is one year. She is already making good progress in her recovery, and her doctors have advised her to take mandatory rest. Samantha will depart for the US in the fourth week of August (Aug. 20).”

Well, starting with ‘Shaakuntalam’ release and promotions to shooting back to back for ‘Kushi’ and ‘Citadel’, Samantha had a busy year with no breaks at all. She wants to now focus on her health before she jumps on to new projects. 2024 is going to be a big year for her with ‘Citadel’ release followed by some big announcements.
