Samantha Ruth Prabhu updates fans about her new normal: ‘Monthly IVIG party’
Actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu is currently actively promoting her forthcoming Telugu mythological film Shaakuntalam despite having the autoimmune disease myositis. The actor kept her fans informed about her monthly intravenous immunoglobulin therapy (IVIg) treatment despite her hectic schedule.
Samantha shared a photo of the filmmakers Rahul Ravindran and Nandini Reddy on her Instagram stories. She wrote on the photo, “Monthly IVIG party. New normal.” According to WebMD, IVIg is “a therapy which can help people with weakened immune systems or other diseases fight off infections.”
Prepared immunoglobulin is infused into the veins during the therapy, which could last between two and four hours.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu disclosed her medical condition on social media. She uploaded a photo of herself taken in the hospital and captioned it, “A few months back I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Myositis. I was hoping to share this after it had gone into remission. But it is taking a little longer than I hoped. I am slowly realising that we don’t always need to put up a strong front.”
The actor added, “The doctors are confident that I will make a complete recovery very soon. I have had good days and bad days…. physically and emotionally…. and even when it feels like I can’t handle one more day of this, somehow that moment passes.” On the work front, Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s next film, Shaakuntalam, will be released on April 14. The much-delayed movie’s producers announced the new release date by writing, “The Love that was forgotten… A timeless love story that endures. Mark April 14 on your calendars because #Shaakuntalam will debut in theatres everywhere.
