As Samantha prepares for the release of her mythological drama, Shaakuntalam, she recently paid a visit to the Palani Murugan temple to seek blessings. The actor climbed 600 stairs of the temple, lighting camphor on every step. Glimpses of the Yashoda star offering prayers in a simple salwar kameez are doing rounds on social media. Jaanu film director C Prem Kumar accompanied her during the temple visit. Given that she is undergoing treatment for Myositis, the stunner kept her mask on at all times

Just a couple of days back, Samantha took to the story section of Instagram and shared a picture with her buddies Rahul Ravindra and Nandu Reddy while she goes through myositis treatment at home.
