South Indian bombshell Sameera Reddy has replaced item girl Mallika Sherawat at the last moment in Abbas-Mustan’s ‘Race’.
“Who cares? Roles exchange hands all the time. Bipasha was supposed to do my role in Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s ‘Kaal Purush‘. Does it matter? I’m just too excited working with Abbas-Mustan for the first time,” Sameera told IANS.
The role of a sexy bimbo in Abbas Mustan’s movie was tailor-made for Mallika Sherawat.
So, is she happy playing the dumb bimbette?
“Yes, I am! Because the fact is, from ‘Musafir‘ onwards I’m quite tired of doing serious dark roles. I want to just let my hair down and have fun.
‘Race‘ will allow that because everyone has a character to play. No one is paired with anyone. It’s just about having fun,” the sultry actress said.
Things haven’t been going smooth for Mallika lately. Following the controversy surrounding her provocative dance performances.. it became a common news that she had lost the role to Sameera, but the real reason is still unknown.
This will not just be Sameera’s first film with Abbas-Mustan, but also first with her co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna and Bipasha Basu.
