Actress Sameera Redddy was at the receiving end of Viveik Oberoi's endless gags and pranks while they were shooting for Naksha.

"Viveik used to scare the hell out of me when we had to perform the stunt sequences. As it is I was petrified and he used to tell me how we could die or what could go wrong.

"He used to send messages to everyone from my cell phone saying 'I love you' and 'you're handsome'," Sameera was quoted as saying by Bollywood Trade.

"But actually his comedy got me distracted and kept me going. I have overcome my fears now. Even Sunny is a very energetic co-star. He used to crack jokes at 5.00 in the morning. I was like the damsel in distress between the two. I got all the attention since I was the only girl on sets," said the actress.

As for the genre, she thinks it's a new concept. Naksha is an adventurous film, a different script which has not been attempted for a long time. The music is great. My favourite track is 'You and I' which has all three of us."

Viveik Oberoi too had a blast shooting with Sunny and Sameera. "It's a privilege to work with a legendary name like Sunny Deol. I am fortunate that I got a chance to work with him. I love action and I enjoyed doing Naksha. Besides, I had fun scaring Sameera," he chuckles.
