She was one of the few Bollywood actresses who maintained her curves during the onslaught of the 'size zero' trend, but Sameera Reddy surprised onlookers when she turned up at a recent event looking svelte as never before. The actress who walked the ramp for designer Neeta Lulla blamed the weight loss on director Nagesh Kukunoor.
“I personally like a bit more meat on myself. I like the voluptuous look. But Nagesh Kukunoor with whom I was shooting Yeh Honsla made me work so hard that I lost all the weight,” Sameera said.
She will be seen in a deglamourised role in the film where she plays a woman living in a small hamlet in Rajasthan whose life changes when she learns how to use a camera. The film was shot over a period of three months in the desert state and the rigorous schedule made Sameera lose her famous curves.
“Nagesh is an amazing director and also a hard taskmaster. The three months I was shooting, he made me work real hard and did not even allow me to have my phone near me,” said the actress.
