MUMBAI: A lot of Bollywood actresses are jumping onto the action bandwagon. The latest to join the list is Sameera Reddy. The actress would be seen doing some daredevil stunts in "Tezz" and looking at her courage, co-star Ajay Devgn calls her the hero of the film.

"Sameera is not the heroine but the hero of the film. She has done some amazing action in the film and is nothing less than any hero in the film," he said in a statement.

Sameera was said to be unhappy over not being offered the item song in the film. However, she said she has no complains and enjoyed doing the stunts.

"I was not offered the item song but I got to be a Lara Croft in the film. It’s an action-oriented character and a strong role. Women in Bollywood never get to perform such stunts. When I was offered the role I was told that I can’t complain that my nails are going to break. I enjoyed doing the stunts," said the 29-year-old actress.
