Sameera Reddy calls the film industry a game of snakes and ladders

Actress Sameera Reddy has delivered various successful films at the box office. However, the actress has admitted that she is rather self-conscious and doesn’t like socializing too much. The actress also said that she knows she should attend parties as it helps gain jobs. The actress also compared the film industry to a game of snakes and ladders. Sameera said that at one point an actor also called her unapproachable.

Recalling the incident while speaking to Pinkvilla she said, “I was doing this film and suddenly I was told that there will be a kissing scene added to the film,” she said. “It wasn’t there before so I wasn’t okay with it. The makers tried to reason with me saying, ‘You did it in Musafir,’ and I was like but that doesn’t mean I’ll keep on doing it. He had then told me that please handle this with care but remember you are replaceable.”
“The whole game is like snakes and ladders. So you need to know how to move around the snakes and make your way. I would never party or hang out with the actors post my shoot. I would head back home and rather watch TV. I never really socialised and I know that helps a lot in getting films. But it’s fine. It’s the nature of the business,” she added.
She further told Pinkvilla saying, “A lot of times, I was about to get a role, but then somebody called. The father or mother would call and a starlet would get it. If somebody is with someone and the heroine is his muse or girlfriend, then she would get the role. All this has happened to me.”
