In an interview with Behindwoods, Sameera was asked what is that one thing she would like to change in the cinema industry. The actress said, “One thing that needs to change in the industry is expectations from women. I think there have been a lot of instances where I have been approached in inappropriate ways. Women should be looked at as much more than objects of glamour. We have a lot more to offer (sic).”

She also said, “This is one thing that will take a long time to change. I also feel that women and men are given a lot of unequal weight. And that’s just the way it is in the industry. One day, if we could change that, it would be good. And I think we are slowly taking baby steps towards that, little by little (sic).”
