Samantha on battling Myositis

Samantha is a power lady and nothing can stop her. Despite having health issues, she attended a few interviews for the promotions of her film Yashoda and made everyone say ‘what a strong woman’. An emotional Samantha, during the interview, opened up about battling with her health disease Myositis and said- “As I said in my post (Instagram), some days are good, some are bad. Some days, I’ve felt that even taking one more step would be difficult. But when I look back, I wonder if I’ve gone through so much and have come this far. I’m here to fight.”


Reel and real me

Everybody is well aware that Samantha is an avid social media user. She never fears or shies away to show the ‘REAL ME’ through her social media, which she considers a medium to connect with her ardent fans. Speaking about her relationship with social media, the actress said, “I think I have spoken about everything in my life. I post fashionable photos, photoshoot photos, and show my glamorous lifestyle so I should also show my not-so-glamorous lifestyle also. People should know, everybody has good times and bad times doesn’t matter even if you are a celebrity, rich or famous.”

Poster girl for big dreams

Samantha, with no godfather or any support from the industry, entered to become an actress and said she is the poster girl of big dreams. In an old interview, she said, “I guess I am the poster girl for big dreams. I come from an extremely humble background. My parents are middle-class people. No one from our family had ever been in the film industry. And here I was getting a launch in a film where I broke the patriarchal rules! It seemed like a dream.”


Mental trauma and personal life battle

After two months, the ‘Majili’ actress decided to speak up about the divorce, its impact on her mental health, her path to recovery, and also the backlash from the public. Speaking about her journey of healing, she said that as soon as a person accepts the fact that they are through something, half of the healing is done. “Accepting, vocalizing, and fighting back is what I did,” she explained. She also said that she felt like she would "crumble and die”. However, she revealed that she realised she will go on to live her life with all these issues, she started appreciating herself for being such a strong woman. She said that she never knew she could pass this. “I am proud of myself because I never knew I was this strong,” Samantha expressed. 

Gives back to trolls like a queen

Samantha is somebody who always gave back to trolls like a queen. She was accused of extra-marital affairs, and abortions, was called a divorced lady, and criticised for her clothing choices but always stood and fought against every odds in life. When social media tried to break her with numerous rumours after her separation from Naga Chaitanya, she promised not to be crushed by the personal insults and attacks. Sharing a statement signed by her on her Instagram handle, which read,  "Your emotional investment into a personal crisis has overwhelmed me. Thank you all for showing deep empathy, concern and for defending me against false rumours and stories that are being spread. They say I had affairs, never wanted children, that I am an opportunist and now that I have had abortions. A divorce in itself is an extremely painful process. Let alone allowing me the time to heal. This attack on me personally, has been relentless. But I promise you this, I will never allow this or anything else they say, break me."


Life struggles and financial crunch

Samantha lived in a middle-class family, where she struggled for basic things like food and education. However, her journey today is nothing but purely inspirational. She once said, “The path to victory, unfortunately, was not easy.” Sam spoke about how she couldn't afford to educate herself after she finished her commerce degree at one of the cultural festivals a few years back. She said, "I was there between all of you not long ago. I desire for everyone of you to become more famous, wealthy, and powerful than I am. That is something I sincerely wish for each and every one of you, since it is feasible. My parents always advised me to'study, study, and you'll make it big' when I was in school. I know I shouldn't really be giving you advice, but I worked really hard in school. My parents couldn't afford it when I decided to continue my education after college. I couldn't afford to continue my studies, and I didn't have a dream, a career, or anything. What I'm trying to express is that I understand your belief that you must follow the route that your parents, and everyone else, expects of you. But I assure you that if you dream big enough, you can achieve anything."
