Sameera Reddy's Birthday Plans

"I couldn't stop laughing when it all happened," recalls actress Sameera Reddy, who celebrates her birthday today on the sets of Prabhu Deva's upcoming Tamil flick, "Prabhu sir was explaining to me last week that we had to shoot the birthday sequence for Paaro, the character I play in his film. He had said that we'd do it on December 14 and went on to explain the entire sequence. I kept giggling all the time and then told him that it was my actual birthday on that day too. It was uncanny timing!"

The actress had a whale of a time in Chennai shooting for the film in which she co-stars Vishal. "I'm yet to start shooting my scenes with Vishal," she states, "But I did meet him during the puja of the film and I must say, he's quite tall! I hope our chemistry clicks once we start shooting together."

Meanwhile, the actress is all praise for director Prabhu Deva with whom she's working for the first time. "He never seems to relax," she says, "I've heard from people that he's focussed and now, after working with him in the past few weeks, I can vouch for it. He's always thinking of ways to improve a scene; that's something I like about him."

So, what's her role in the film like? "I play a fun-loving college girl (Paaro)," she says, "There's a lot of comedy and life in Paaro. And yes, she has quite a few punch lines too!"

In the coming year, the actress plans to concentrate more on her Tamil projects. "Yes, 2011 will be the year when I'll go all out in Tamil," she reveals, "There have been several complaints from fans on my micro blogging page about me not doing enough Tamil films. That was when I was shooting for Gautham's Nadunisi Naaygal, a few months ago. So, I've decided to work a lot more here." Apart from Prabhu Deva's film, Sameera has Linugusamy's Vettai, for which work will start early next year.

Budday plans
I'll be in Chennai shooting in the first half of the day. Then, I'm off to Mumbai where I'll be shooting for an ad. All my friends are upset that there's not going to be a party on my special day!
