Sameera Reddy may have been away from the silver screen for a while, but given the power of social media, the actor is making all the right buzz. The actress recently shared a short spoof video of the recent Netflix reality series, Indian Matchmaking.

In the video uploaded by The Taxi No 9211 actress on her Instagram handle, she puts down her criteria for an ideal mother-in-law, while footage of Indian Matchmaking host Sima Taparia is inserted for reaction shots. Reddy says it's a mother-in-law who is a woman's real life-partner and said that one must get the 'right mother-in-law' to make the marriage successful.

She says, "Astrologer, palm-reader, face-reader, kuch bhi kar lo, mother-in-law toh sahi chahiye mujhe (do anything but I want the right mother-in-law). She should be at least 6-ft-tall, definitely traditionally dressed, no tattoos, no scarves, no boots….and always listening to bhajans". The video then cuts to her mother-in-law Manjri Varde who doesn't meet the requirements and has her own take on the matter. On the other hand, the mother-in-law demands a daughter-in-law who is mentally stable, and we can see Sameera laughing it off like a madwoman.

Sharing the video, Sameera wrote, "Asli life partner toh Mother in law hoti hai this is how I found my Sassy Saasu! The perfect match (sic)". Take a look:

I had a message form a mom who says she feels 'fat' 'ugly' and 'not beautiful' with her post baby fat . She said she looked at me and felt dejected . OMG!!! So here are my morning swelly eyes . No tricks no make up just me owning it! And I'm hoping that this enforces a positive spin on our own expectations of ourselves . I feel coming back to the public view in a way that I feel no pressure for my own mental health has helped me stay focused on being a good mother and a person who is self accepting that makes it a healthier space for all around me . Don't dwell on what you are not and what you don't have ! Let's focus on the good 🙏🏼 we are all #imperfectlyperfect #loveyourself #justthewayyouare #keepingitreal

In an interview to IANS, Sameera spoke about what it takes to be a new mother, especially during coronavirus lockdown. "Every time I look at my baby girl, I feel a sense of joy and optimism. There are so many stories that I will be telling her about the unconditional love and efforts that doctors, nurses, police forces, and the community at large are putting in to ensure our safety and protection," she said.

"I understand what it takes to be a new mother, especially during this time. I have always championed that we mothers are imperfectly perfect - the ups and downs, constant worry, disconnection, these feelings are normal and I am confident that we will come out stronger," she added.
