She was one of the few Bollywood actresses who maintained their curves during the onslaught of the 'size zero' trend, but Sameera Reddy surprised onlookers when she turned up at a recent event here looking svelte as never before. The actress who walked the ramp for designer Neeta Lulla during the launch of Aza, the couture store, blamed the weight loss on director Nagesh Kukunoor.
"I personally like a bit more meat on myself, I am all for the voluptuous look. But Nagesh Kukunoor with whom I was shooting 'Yeh Honsla' made me work so hard that I lost all the weight," Sameera told PTI.
The 27-year-old actress will be seen in a deglamourised role in the film where she plays a woman living in a small hamlet in Rajasthan whose life changes when she
learns how to use a camera. The film was shot over a period of three months in the desert state and the rigorous schedule made Sameera lose her
"Nagesh is an amazing director and also a hard taskmaster. The three months I was shooting, he made me work real hard and did not even allow me to have my phone near me," said the actress.
