In the comments section, a lot of people wished her a speedy recovery. Many wrote, “Take care” and “Get well soon”.

Poonam made her acting debut with 2006 Telugu film, Malayalam. She went on to star in films such as Souryam, Vinayakudu, Eenadu, Ganesh and Gaganam among others. She currently awaits the release of Telugu film Nathicharami.

In October, Samantha shared a picture from the hospital and revealed that she is suffering from Myositis, a rare condition of the muscles. Her Instagram post read: "Your response to the Yashoda Trailer was overwhelming. It is this love and connection that I share with all of you, that gives me the strength to deal with the seemingly unending challenges that life throws at me. 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. Accepting this vulnerability is something that I am still struggling with. 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. I guess it can only mean that I am one more day closer to recovery. I love you.. THIS TOO SHALL PASS".
