Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who is currently on a one-year break from acting, was in the headlines recently for allegedly taking financial help for her myositis treatment. The actor, who’s looking forward to her next release, Citadel (Indian Installment), took to her Instagram handle to address the claims. She denied the claims through a post stating that she wasn’t paid marbles.
Prabhu wrote, "25 crores to treat myositis! Someone gave you a pretty bad deal. I am glad I am only spending the smallest fraction of that. And I don’t think I was paid in marbles for all the work I’ve done in my career. So, I can easily take care of myself. Thank you."

Further, the Kushi actor pointed out that myositis is a condition that thousands of people suffer from. She urged people to be more responsible with the information that’s put out regarding the treatment.
This comes after some news reports claimed that a top-tier actor was allegedly helping Prabhu with finances for her treatment for myositis. The news report emerged as a video report by Sakshi TV claiming that Prabhu had borrowed a sum of Rs. 25 lakhs from an unnamed leading actor for her treatment. However, the claim wasn’t substantiated with any evidence.
After a vacation in Bali with her friend Anusha Swamy, Prabhu is believed to be travelling to the United States soon to begin treatment. The actor, who was diagnosed with myositis in October 2022, took a minor break before getting back to the spot and finishing Kushi and Citadel back-to-back. Despite finding it tough to shoot while suffering from the auto-immune condition, Prabhu fulfilled her work commitments before taking a break.
The actor was last seen in Shaakuntalam, a mythological film by Gunasekhar. She is looking forward to her next theatrical release, Kushi, alongside Vijay Devarakonda and Citadel, directed by Raj and DK. Prabhu plays the female lead alongside Varun Dhawan in the Indian version.
