Sameera different from others

From marriage proposals, to guys passing comments, catch Sameera Reddy as she unspools her thoughts.

Hot actresses are in the habit of making tall claims of their beauty and glamour. One can hear them saying boys often make a pass at them or they are flooded with marriage proposals and the like.

But Sameera Reddy stands on a different platform. She doesn’t have stories of boys dying for her or her mobile phone ringing often with marriage proposals. Says she, “To be very honest, I feel that no one has ever made a pass at me.

"I don't recall any incident when someone has come close to me to say that I am looking hot or he wants to propose me. I believe that when you become an actress, you become unapproachable for the common man. Guys feel intimidated about coming closer to you or making any comments or passing remarks.

"I have now become a known face in the industry, so I don’t think anyone will dare to make a pass at me. Having said that I will also say that I also have never given anyone an opportunity for any such thing to happen.”

Not just that even Sameera has a very different perception about looking glamorous and sexy. She opines, “It’s a very wrong notion that you look sexy in swimsuit or in anything which exposes most of your body parts.

"Showing your body part has nothing to do with looking sensuous, glamorous and sexy. Rani Mukherjee and Priety Zinta are two actresses who carry glamour on their faces. Even a sari-clad woman can look sexy and glamorous if she knows how to carry herself. I am comfortable in both the dresses - sari as well as in skimpy ones - because I know how to carry myself.

"So it’s not dress which is provocative but the manner you are carrying yourself in that dress make you provocative,” signs of Sameera.
