Bollywood is full of politics: Sameera Reddy


By Hindustan Times

Sameera Reddy who made a comeback in Bollywood with Priyadarshani's Tezz, says she is happy doing South films and explains why she left Bollywood before the industry could abandon her, reports Rediff.

Sameera Reddy shares that Bollywood is full of politics and one should leave the industry if one can't play the game. The 29-year-old is well satisfied with her South career. "When you are a queen in your own country, why would you want to go anywhere else?" actor tells Rediff.

Talking about her role in Tezz, Sameera explains to the website: "I have done the most difficult scene any girl has ever done on screen. It is a very important bike scene. I had to go through intensive training before pulling it off because we couldn't cheat the audience by using a body double here."

The actor also told Rediff: "In one scene, I'm being chased by cops and have to jump into a river. I remember the temperature was two degrees and we were freezing like ice cubes. I had to get in the river with two huge bags, go underwater for like 20 seconds, and dive away from there".

In Priyadarshan's Tezz, Reddy plays a bad-ass antagonist chased by law-enforcer Anil Kapoor's choppers and bullets.
