Sameera Reddy is in Chennai shooting for Gautham Vasudev Menon’s untitled thriller with new boy Veera as the hero.
She is shooting night shifts for this film which happens in the night on the coastal ECR seaside villas and on the highways.
Sameera is happy with the way thing have unfolded as two of her last Friday (July 9) ‘de-glam’ releases Red Alert in Hindi and her first film with Mohanlal in Malayalam Oru Naal Varum (ONV) have come in for critically appreciation.
On Wednesday Mohanlal’s close buddy Priyadarshan, arranged a special show of ONV for Sameera at his Four Frames preview theatre.
In fact the good news is that Priyadarshan has signed her up to play one of the leads in his next film starting in London with Anil Kapoor and Ajay Devgan, where she is rumoured to be playing a terrorist!
Says Sameera: “ I worked for Red Alert where I play a Naxalite woman without any make up and my performance is being talked about, while in ONV, I play the mother of a five year old fighting for the custody of her daughter. It was a great learning experience for me to be paired with Lal ettan (Mohanlal), one of the finest actors in the country.”
