After ending a six-year hiatus from Tollywood with a sizzling item number with Venky and Rana — in the recently-released Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum — Bollywood siren Sameera Reddy could be making a comeback as a lead actress in Telugu films. It is reliably learnt that the actress has been approached to play the lead opposite actor Balakrishna in his next venture.
Sources close to Balayya reveal that the filmmakers are on the verge of signing her up. Apparently, the actress has already heard the script and loved it. It's going to be a big-ticket, action-entertainer and Sameera, it is learnt, has a meaty role in the movie. "Sameera loves the role sketched out for the leading lady in the movie.
However, it is too early to comment about it as she is yet to sign on the dotted line, as some details are yet to be worked out, and an official confirmation will be made as soon as she does that," says her spokesperson. Incidentally, Sam's last outing in a lead role was opposite NTR Jr (Balakrishna's nephew) in Ashok. It will be interesting to see if Sameera can rework the magic with his uncle, Balayya.Well, if her item number with the other famous uncle-nephew duo — Rana and Venky — is anything to go by, Sameera might just ace it again.
