Sameera Reddy turns Maoist
Actor Sameera Reddy is back in news for her upcoming flick ‘Red Alert-The War Within’ where he is playing a Maoist.
Sameera plays a character named Lakshmi in the film.
“Director Anant Mahadevan had thought of shooting this movie in the jungles of Telangana in the first place. But the shooting was done in the jungles of Lonavala and Khandala and all of us know it’s quite difficult to shoot in jungles,” said Sameera sounding excited about her new film.
Asked if she was apprehensive about taking up the role (something different from what she has been doing so far), Sameera said: “Unlike most films, ‘Red Alert’ is based on true incidents; which is why I thought of acting in it. When Anant narrated the script, I liked it very much. According to me audience too will like this movie as its story outlines how a farmer is forced to pick-up weapons when he has no options left. Even my role is very interesting.”
With a host of actors (including Vinod Khanna and Seema Biswas) in the film, did Sameera get a chance to show her actor side?
“Yes, definitely everyone got to play how much ever role he/she were outlined. I am quite happy with the role I got to play. I also learned a lot from my co-actors,” she said.
Meanwhile, Sameera has signed ‘Mahayodha Ram’, ‘Race-2’ and an unnamed Tamil film.
