Sameera Reddy's beaming smile tells it all Back from an ad shoot in Hong Kong and Dubai,she loves her city jaunts. "It's like coming home. I wish I did more Telugu films," she avers even before we pop the inevitable question. In Hyderabad for Gautham Menon's "Erra Gulabilu", the 'Southern Cocktail' (that's how Sam describes herself) settles for a chat with Hyderabad Times and yes, she even talks about her former co-star and 'friend' NTR Junior.
What's the big plan for 2011? Work apart, I promised Reddy garu, that's my dad, that I'll get married in 2011. I'm looking for Mr Right. I do want to settle down. Please tell me if you know someone good (she laughs)!
I am into serious multitasking, I am trying to balance work in Bollywood as well as the southern film industry. I've worked very hard in 2010 without a break. Three of my Hindi films are due for release — Nagesh Kukunoor's "Yeh Haunsla", Anees Bazmi's "Benaam" co-starring Ajay Devgn and Priyadarshan's "Tezz". Buddhadeb Dasgupta's "Ami Yasin Ar Amar Madhubala" that has done the festival rounds abroad is also due for release in India. In 2011 I have a lot of South films — Gautham Menon's Tamil-Telugu bilingual "Erra Gulabilu", which is an edge-of-the-seat thriller where I sport Gautham's trademark less-makeup look which I really love. Then I have Prabhu Deva's film. I was disappointed that Prabhu wasn't doing the choreography, but he promised that he'd get Brinda master to incorporate some of his signature moves. It's a hilarious comedy. Comedies are the toughest thing to do, but they are the most fulfilling. Then I have Lingusamy's Tamil-Telugu "Vettai" which is my first film with Madhavan.
