Actress Sameera Reddy has opened on the time when she was actively working in the Indian film industry and how everyone was obsessed with plastic surgeries. She narrated an incident, where she was asked to pad her breasts. While talking about the same, she also said how everyone was getting work done on their bodies to look better on-screen.
“I think there was a crazy phase about 10 years ago where everybody was getting plastic surgery, b*b job, change nose or bone structure. I had to always pad my chest and was told to get a b*b job done," Reddy said in an interview with Mid-Day.
"Many times, I would think, 'Should I? Is this the norm?' because it was so openly spoken about and as an actor I questioned if I had to do it. But I didn't and I am so grateful to God I didn't because today I wouldn't have been comfortable about it," she stated further.
Sameera Reddy had made her film debut in 2002 in a title called 'Maine Dil Tujhko Diya' opposite Sohail Khan.
"There are many people who choose corrective surgery and it is their choice. If it makes them happy, I say live and let live, who are we to judge," said Sameera Reddy.
Sameera Reddy has primarily worked in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu films. She is best known for starring in films such as 'Darna Mana Hai', 'Musafir' , 'Jai Chiranjeeva', 'Taxi Number 9211', 'Ashok', 'Race', 'De Dana Dan', 'Aakrosh' and 'Tezz'.
While talking about her self-acceptance journey, Sameera Reddy said: "I think it began when I didn't have anybody who was guiding me though one of my major breakdowns, which happened postpartum. I remember slipping into a very bad, dark space about my body, my career, about being perceived as successful or how fast I could bounce back after motherhood and I cracked."
"I actually hid inside the house and I didn't talk to anybody. I cut off from people and I didn't have the right mindset and I wasn't getting the right messages from social media and society at that time," she added.
