Niti Taylor Samantha
After Niti Taylor slipped and fell down on the set of a reality show during her performance, she took the opportunity to speak up about a health condition she suffered from. Taylor revealed that as a kid she suffered a septal heart defect, which is commonly known as having a hole in the heart. She added that this prevented her from doing any strenuous activities. “I couldn’t go to amusement parks or take flights or do anything adventurous,” she said, adding, “When I recovered, I danced with joy and I’ve been dancing since then.”
After months of speculation around her health, Samantha took to her Instagram handle last month to reveal that she has been battling a rare auto-immune condition called myositis. She posted a picture that saw her sitting with an IV drip on her wrist alongside a caption that read, “I was hoping to share this after it had gone into remission. But it is taking a little longer than I hoped. Accepting this vulnerability is something that I am still struggling with.” Myositis is a group of rare conditions that weaken the muscles and tires them out. The actor recently rubbished reports of her deteriorating health and subsequent hospitalisation.
