New Delhi: Bollywood actor Sameera Reddy recently had a conversation about her white hair with her dad. Her father asked the actor why she “isn’t covering her white hair,” to which she replied she is not “paranoid” about her look anymore.
Taking to her official Instagram handle on Tuesday (September 14), Sameera posted two pictures of herself in which she can be seen sporting partially white hair.
Sharing the pictures, the actor wrote, ”My dad asked me why I’m not covering my white hair. He was worried about people judging me. I answered ‘So what if they did… Did it mean I’m old? Not pretty? Not groomed? Not appealing?’ I told him that I’m not paranoid about it like I used to be and that freedom is liberating.”
She added, “I used to colour every 2 weeks so nobody could catch that line of white. Today I take my own sweet time and choose to colour if and when I feel like. He asked me why I should be the one to change the conversation? I said why not? I know I’m not alone. The shift and acceptance only begin when old thought processes are broken. When we can just let each other be. When confidence can just find its way naturally and not hidden behind a mask or cover. My dad understood. As I understood his concern as a father. Every day we learn we move forward and we find peace in small shifts. And it’s those small steps that take us to much bigger places #happiness #acceptance #selflove #imperfectlyperfect.”
Sameera and businessman Akshai Varde who tied the knot in a traditional Maharashtrian wedding in 2014, welcomed son Hans in 2015 and daughter Nyra in 2019.
On the professional front, Sameera was last seen in the 2013 Kannada film Varadhanayaka.
