|Subject: IS SAMEERAS SOUTH CAREER OVER Fri Aug 10, 2012 8:20 pm|| |
The actor has no film offers from any south industry
Bollywood actor Sameera Reddy was filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menons muse at one point in time and even had a blockbuster with Suriya in Vaaranam Aayiram in 2008.Another role followed in Gauthams Nadunisi Naaygal,which didnt fare well.So too her flick Vedi with Vishal.Though her 2012 release,the Madhavan-starrer Vettai,was an average hit,Sameera has not bagged any new films in Tamil.
The same can be said about her career in Tollywood and Mollywood.The actor has not signed any flicks in either of these industries in the last few years.Her last Telugu film was Ashok in 2006,while in Malayalam it was Oru Naal Varum in 2010.However,she recently did manage to bag a guest role in a Kannada film titled Varadhanayaka,with Sudeep,for which shes rumoured to have been paid between 35 and 45 lakh.
The initial attraction of the south film industry for the actor from Bollywood seems to have waned.So,has Sameera reached an impasse in the south Some industry insiders feel that shes too old,having well crossed 30,while others say that her statuesque frame doesnt suit the roles or pairing with heroes often.The industrys constant quest for new faces has also definitely had an impact on the careers of many heroines.
Says a filmmaker on condition of anonymity,Sameera is not a Bollywood A-list actor in the first place.She looked at roles in the south only because she wasnt getting great films up north.Her Bollywood career was supported to a great extent by Priyadarshan films and his last film,Tezz,was a dud.
Now since Gautham has moved on to another muse in Kollywood and with other south filmmakers keen on roping in A-list Bollywood heroines or new faces,it looks like Sams career here could be on hold indefinitely.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
