Sameera Is On The 'Red Alert' Expedition
Sameera Reddy is now-a-days busy on her ‘Red Alert’ expedition and is shooting in the jungles as a naxalite. Her expedition will come to an end on July 9 with the release of the movie.
You will see a de-glam, violent and a wild Sameera in the movie ‘Red Alert’. She plays a very different character in the movie and doesn’t carry even a bit of her previous glamorous image. Surprisingly, the actress didn’t have any knowledge about the Maoist problem and when she was offered the movie, she came to know about it.
Sameera adds, “The script was really appealing since it dealt with an issue. I was not aware of the Naxalite movement a-year-and-a-half ago. I want to dedicate myself towards it now.”
She further adds, “A transition from a simple girl to a Naxalite and picking up guns and fighting was difficult. It was also not easy to shoot in the jungles.”
Sameera started her career from Pankaj Udhas’ video ‘Aur Aahista’ and then she made her debut into the Bollywood industry after giving many hits in Tollywood.
The movie, ‘Red Alert’ also stars Sunil Shetty, Vinod Khanna, Seema Biswas and Gulshan Grover. There have speculations that Sameera picked up the role of a naxalite just to get rid of her glamorous image, but Sameera denies it and adds, “It's not a conscious decision to change my image through the film. I did it because the role was appealing and challenging.”
Sameer will be next seen in Nagesh Kukonoor’s ‘Yeh Hausla’, where she might play a double role.
