When Samantha got candid about her struggles with myositis

The actor had revealed her myositis diagnosis on Instagram on June 15, 2022 ahead of the release of her film Yashoda. In a reflective post on Instagram, The Family Man star shared that she was embracing a “forced new normal”. She also got candid about how she was on a "cocktail of medications" and had to make major changes to her diet that align with her condition.


"It’s been one year since the diagnosis. A year of forced new normal. Many battles with my body… no salt, sugar or grains with a cocktail of meds for main course, forced shutdowns and forced restarts. A year of seeking meaning, reflection and introspection. Of professional failures too… to make things more interesting," she shared in a reflective post.
