Sameera Reddy is a big fan of Oprah Winfrey. She was one among the invited guests for the party hosted by Parmeshwar Godrej for Oprah. The actress, who was busy with the promotion works of Vettai, left behind all the works and ran to Mumbai to meet her. Since Oprah was surrounded by many celebs, she had to wait for her turn.
When Sameera Reddy met Oprah Winfrey, her lime green Shantanu-Nikhil saree caught her attention. Oprah could not help admiring her saree. The excited actress offered her to get a similar sari, which she refused. Immediately, she requested Shantanu-Nikhil to design a similar sari, which would be sent to Oprah before she leaves India.
