Sameera Reddy goes arty

Sameera Reddy Having begun her career as a glam doll, Sameera Reddy is now changing lanes. She's getting interested in arty roles.

Sameera, who ventured into Bollywood with films like Musafir and did only item songs rather than acting, got a shock when maverick director Nagesh Kukunoor got her to play the role of a rustic Rajasthani woman in his latest low-budget movie 'Yeh Hausla'.

Last year was not so good for Nagesh's films as his first commercial movie Bombay To Bangkok was a flop and his action-thriller with Akshay Kumar is yet to make it to the theatres. Then his Aashayein with John Abraham is still waiting to release.




But the director is not bogged down by all this and is geared up for a film based on the life of a Dalit woman, played by Sameera Reddy. Nagesh has been hearing comparisons drawn between Sameera and Smita Patil by Buddhadeb Dasgupta, talented Bengali director who signed Sameera to play a deglamorised Bengali lady in his film 'Kalpurush'.

Sameera was in Jodhpur for 46 days, shooting at a stretch for 'Yeh Hausla'. In keeping with her character she was mostly clad in ghagra-choli, walking barefoot in barren land. "I feel I've gone to acting school. Nagesh has taught me so much," said the actress.

For Sameera, the whole experience has been a rewarding one. And guess who told her to accept the project? John Abraham.
