Reddy first appeared in ghazal singer Pankaj Udhas's "Aur Aahista" music video in 1997, when she was a graduate. Sameera was meant to make her debut as an actress in Saravana Subbiah's Tamil film, Citizen, during late 2000, but eventually did not feature. She caught the attention of Bollywood and was cast in a pivotal role in the 2002 Hindi film Maine Dil Tujhko Diya. In 2004, she appeared in Musafir opposite Anil Kapoor, Aditya Pancholi and Koena Mitra.

Reddy appeared in the Tamil film Vaaranam Aayiram directed by Gautham Menon, opposite Surya Sivakumar, which was a blockbuster. Reddy's acting and modest portrayal of a confident and down-to-earth girl earned her rave reviews. She was signed for two films of Gautham Menon: Yohan Adhyayam Ondru and Dhruva Natchathiram. They were eventually dropped.

Other activities

Reddy was a judge for the Miss Sri Lanka Online contest in 2012.

Personal life
