Dusky beauty and leggy lass Sameera Reddy’s attention is far from diverted from the world of filmmaking. The Manoj Bajpai starrer “Dus Tola”, which released this week, also marked Sameera’s debut in her new avatar -that of powerhouse producer. Next up for Sameera’s production house, launched in collaboration with Sanjay Bhattacharya, is a comic caper on the lines of “Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron”, National Roaming, followed by Then Tibet and Stamp Collector, a film based on Vishwapriya Iyengar’s critically acclaimed short story No Letter from Mother. I have not completely given up acting," says Sameera, who hasn’t signed a single film. "I will work as and when I have time. Producing films is my priority now. However, I will continue with my endorsements and anchoring commitments." However, making appearances in her own films is not on the anvil. "People assume that actors turn producers to promote her selves, but that honestly isn’t the case with me," she asserts.
But producing isn’t the only thing on Sameera’s mind. She intends to take up what she was trained for -direction. "I will take the plunge within the next two years," says Sameera. "In the meantime, I am busy writing my own scripts."
