Bollywood and southern actress Sameera Reddy was shocked recently to find her profile was being circulated on a popular matrimonial site. “I got to know about it through a friend who said that I have a matrimonial profile,” she says, “According to the profile, I have even put up details about the kind of a man I want to marry. And before I know it, the news is all over the Internet. Do you think that I need to go to a website to declare that I want to marry? Now I am wondering whether I should sue the company or send them a notice!”
Sammera is looking forward to Red Alert, in which she plays a Naxalite woman, whose views have been forged from personal adversity. The film has a strong cast that includes Sunil Shetty, Vinod Khanna, Naseruddin Shah and Ayesha Darkar. She also has a strong role in De Dhana Dhan, the latest Akshay-Katrina vehicle and will also be central to the plot of Ajith Kumar’s Asal, in which she plays a female executive in Paris.
Not many people know this, but Sameera is a golf fanatic and likes to play whenever she gets the chance. She even has her own set of Ping golf-clubs. “Golf is quite a challenging sport,” she says, “It’s really exciting once you get the hang of it and what’s most interesting is that everything is dependent on one’s accuracy. You need to have brilliant concentration and judgment skills.” Her favourite players are Tiger Woods and Paul Casey.
