Proud of my dusky skin: Sameera Reddy
"I am so proud of my dusky look. I am so proud to have black eyes, black hair and a dusky skin. I am a tall voluptuous girl and I can never be thin," Sameera told us in a confident tone.
The actress, who has appeared in Hindi films like 'Race', 'No Entry' and 'De Dana Dan' apart from southern films too, admits her dusky look helped her bag the song in Prakash Jha's 'Chakravyuh'.
"When Prakash Jha called me, he said he wants me to do an item song and he can't think of anyone else for it. He basically wanted a very earthy and rustic look for his song. It's a very realistic film and this song was needed in the second half of the film.
"He liked the fact that I am fit. He wanted someone with the dusky skin," she added.
The 29-year-old is happy she has managed to carve a niche for herself in showbiz without a godfather.
"I always say without any filmy background, I have done whatever I want to do in life. I am happy the way my career has shaped up and there are no regrets. I am glad to be part of southern films as well which are being remade in Hindi. My latest (Tamil) film 'Vettai' is being remade in Hindi," she said.
'Chakravyuh' has an eclectic cast featuring Arjun Rampal, Abhay Deol, Esha Gupta, Manoj Bajpayee, Kabir Bedi and Anjali Patil. It will release on October 24.
