Actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu and actor Naga Chaitanya in 2021 announced their separation, ending their four-year marriage. While the couple never disclosed the reason behind their separation, there were several speculations around the news and theories began to float. After the separation, Samantha was also diagnosed with an auto-immune condition. Now, she has released a health podcast where she speaks abut her battle with myositis. In the first episode of the podcast Samantha spoke about the separation year without naming her ex-husband. 

“I remember specifically the year before I had this problem, it was an extremely difficult year for me. I specifically remember the day that I think my friend/partner/manager Himank, and I were traveling back from Mumbai. And this was in June of the year before last, and I remember telling him that finally I feel calm. I haven’t felt a little relaxed and a little calm in a very, very long time. And I finally feel like I can breathe and I can go to sleep, and I can now wake up and focus on my work and be the best that I can be at work. And I woke up with this condition,” Samantha said. Samantha and Naga Chaitanya dated for a couple of years before tying the knot in 2017. Samantha made her acting debut in 2013 opposite Naga Chaitanya in the romantic drama 'Ye Maaya Chesave' directed by Gautam Vasudev Menon.  

Samantha was accompanied by wellness coach and nutritionist, Alkesh Sharotri in her very first podcast. The podcast, titled "Understanding Autoimmunity" is the first podcast in the Health series.

“The reason I wanted to do this podcast was because after the experience, the harrowing experience that I’ve been through and well, an autoimmune condition is lifelong, so with what I’m dealing with right now as well, I’d rather people be safe than sorry,” she added.

Meanwhile, the actress who was last seen in Kushi opposite Vijay Deverakonda will be next seen in the global show 'Citadel' alongside Varun Dhawan. The show has been directed by Raj and DK and is the Indian adaptation of the American show of the same title.
