RaceSameera Reddy taps her comic vein in 'Race'

She may be known for her sizzling scenes on screen, but in the forthcoming thriller Race , Sameera Reddy has tapped her comic vein.

Sameera has no songs in 'Race' and says she doesn't miss them.




"When you see the film, you'll realise there was no space for singing in my character. I don't think it's important to have songs to make your presence felt. Amitabh Bachchan didn't sing in Zanjeer . Neither did Rani Mukherjee in Black ," Sameera is reported as saying.

" Anil Kapoor and I had done something very serious in our earlier film Musafir . Here we just let ourselves go. I had never done comedy before."

But the film that finds Sameera immersed in a complete comic climate is Ashwani Dhir 's One Two Three in which the actress is paired with Paresh Rawal .

"So what if I've no song in 'Race'? I've an entire romantic duet with Paresh ji in 'One Two Three'. Our whole encounter is based on a comic misunderstanding. I learnt all there was to learn about comic timing from him."

"I'd have done the film just for the pleasure of learning so much about comedy from Paresh ji. But I also wanted to work with Ashwani Dhir. I'm a big fan of his sitcom 'Office Office'. Such straight-faced humour! That's what he has brought into our film."

'Race', directed by Abbas-Mastan , also stars Saif Ali Khan , Akshaye Khanna , Katrina Kaif and Bipasha Basu and 'One Two Three' also stars Sunil Shetty , Tusshar Kapoor , Esha Deol , Neetu Chandra , Upen Patel and Tanishaa .
