"Imagine, a Reddy is a star in Ghosh-land. It was a challenge and I'm glad I proved equal to it." chuckles Sameera.
Sameera may be a Reddy, but she seems to have found unexpected fame in Bengal, what with one of the region's most prominent directors Buddhadeb Dasgupta having taken a fancy to her.
Sameera starred in Dasgupta's Kaal Pursh and now in Me Yasim and Madubala which tackles the prickly subject of voyeurism and the invasion of private feminine space through the intrusive male gaze. The quasi-satire now heads for Toronto for the Festival in September.
