Her character in Oye! is that of Sandhya, a conservative girl, who lives life on her own terms. In contrast to her character, a traditional girl, Shamilee loves wearing western outfits. She feels comfortable in jeans and t-shirts and can carry them well. She would like to be herself on screen. According to her, co-star Siddharth, was very supportive and would explain every scene to her on the sets.
Shamilee has a lot of dreams for the celluloid. But the one thing she wouldn"t like to do is act opposite Ajith. She thinks it would be an absurd idea and that even he would dislike it. He is like an elder brother to her and she"s like a baby to him. It will never happen.
