What has Sameera Reddy been up to?
Born mid-July, Nyra is Reddy's second child with her husband Akshai Varde of 6 years. Reddy retired from acting soon after her first pregnancy because she gained weight and lost confidence. She didn't face the public until she lost that weight. She and her husband run their business, Vardenchi, a custom motorcycle shop in Goregaon West which also sells biking accessories and parts.
