However, she spoke about how a celebrity’s life isn’t perfect and highlighted the importance of speaking about their weaknesses and their pain. Hindustan Times quoted her saying:

“We live in an increasingly stressful world where there is so much focus, whether it is on social media, on portraying perfect lives. It is becoming more difficult to speak about our weaknesses, our pain, our anxiety because there is so much focus… Being very active on social media, I noticed the stress of portraying perfect lives. No one’s life is perfect, trust me.”

Samantha Prabhu further divulged that behind the glitz and glamour, celebrities tend to suffer and it should be made normal for them to speak about their pain.

“I think it is time for people like us, people like me most definitely, to speak about not just the glitz and glamour but also the pain, the suffering, the lows. It is normal for all of us to go through that, it is too normal to talk about it and it is normal to ask for help.”
