Actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who took a year-long break from acting after her diagnosis of the autoimmune condition Myositis, is finally back and will soon resume her work. 

Giving an update on her Instagram stories, Samantha joyfully announced her return to work through a video message.

"Yes, I am going back to work, finally. But apart from that, in the meantime, I was so completely jobless. But, I am doing something fun with a friend. It's a health podcast. It is quite unexpected, but it is something that I really, really love. I am extremely passionate about and I am very excited that it is released next week. I hope that some of you really find it extremely useful. And, I think I have enjoyed making this," said Samantha.

In the video, Samantha also shared her next project which is a health podcast, which she collaborated on with a friend. Expressing her excitement, she revealed the podcast's release is scheduled for the coming week.
