Sameera Reddy’s untold secret revealed

Sameera Reddy, who was in the news for posting regular updates of her pregnancy, gave birth to her second baby recently. And now, she has revealed an untold secret about her.

In a chat show, she said she was suffering from stammering and it was Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan who helped her overcome it.

“Due to my stammering problem, I would hesitate to speak in front of others, and (would hesitate) going for auditions thinking that people would judge me,” she said.

“Hrithik, being the sweet and caring person he is, noticed this, and gave me a book that changed my life. It helped me overcome my fear. Gradually, I started noticing changes in my speech,” she said further.

The Vaaranam Aayiram and Vettai actress said: “I also went to a speech therapist and started working on my speech. I cannot thank Hrithik enough for that book and I still have it with me.”

Last month, Sameera delivered a girl child. The actress, who is married to businessman Akshai Varde is already mother to a boy, had posted on Instagram a photo of her hand holding the hand of the infant.

She wrote: “Our little angel came this morning 🌸My Baby girl ! Thank you for all the love and blessings ❤️🙏🏻 #blessed.”

During pregnancy, she launched a campaign called  ‘imperfectlyperfect’ to promote body positivity, self-worth, self-love amongst women who have body-image issues, and who have to deal with societal stereotypes on what makes a woman attractive.
