A Pest for Some, Most Wanted for Some, Just a Baggage for a Majority
Shrouded in mystery, an enigma, she is the baggage of the past that the man carries but his lips are always sealed, never ever voicing his past tale to describe the allusion. The hint of her existence came via the old lady in the show and since then she has become one of the most awaited characters -- along with Vicky -- despite never been explicitly introduced. She is expected to add a new, interesting facet to Mann's character, and also provide the key to open the jammed doors of his past life.
It looks like the man has now crossed over with his soul-mate after burying this baggage deep. But, has she been completely vanquished from the casa of memories and the subconscious mind. The outer facade can be quite deceptive and even confuses the man wearing it -- he also starts believing in its truth while the reality may be completely different. The day the past stands in front, it may seem that it was never buried deep enough and matters the most even in the present, or it may seem so insignificant that one feel like a fool for giving it so much of importance for such a long time. But to know the real status, the spectre of the past has to revisit with a basket full of familiar moments to rekindle the old relationship.
The mysterious lady will soon arrive in this show with her basket and is not at all a senile mind's figment of imagination. This past baggage, the character, is called Sameera; but she is still formless -- like clay in the hands of the potter and the creator can give it a shape as per his whim. However, since the character will enter in the middle of the show, the creator should be a little extra careful, and give it a form without disturbing the essence of the show and its established characters.
Sketching an unknown is the most interesting aspect of writing, and I am just making an amateur attempt to dress-up this character and provide some half-baked fabricated details.
Introducing Sameera in the Present:
Somewhere in the west, a lady is in a conference room with her clients, discussing the progress of a project. She is an architect running her own successful architectural firm. The phone rings, she excuses herself and a mysterious smile plays on her lips. Once upon a time, the same smile lighted-up the face of MSK. She is a dusky, tall, smart, and an attractive lady and her hair is till the nape. Confident is her demeanour, pleasing is her personality, and elegant is her dressing style. Currently in a relationship but does not seem happy as her heart still longs for the man in N. Delhi.
("My countenance is half burned and the other half is hidden by a mask to give the impression that I am in control. I can proudly say that I am a success story. There is a man who loves me but I still carry an emotional wound that festers. There are awards on my shelf but I feel like a non-achiever in life. Winning back something precious is what I often think about in the night but do not have the courage to walk back when it's morning.")
Introducing Sameera in the Past:
An ambitious, dreamy-eyed girl, Sameera is filling-up an interview form in the lobby of Khurana Construction (KC). She has just completed her architectural engineering from a reputed college. Born and brought-up in N.Delhi, she belongs to a well-to-do family but not born with the proverbial silver-spoon. She is Nayantara's cousin who helps her get an interview opportunity in KC thanks to the recommendation of her then fiance Dev.
She is usually in jeans and a T-shirt with a pencil always in her hand, or she can be seen chewing its end while thinking about a design. She has shoulder length hair and the face has a youthful freshness. Walk is laid-back, eyes curious, and the mysterious smile defines the character. She is loquacious, outgoing but cautious too. Her positive points, according to her interview form, completely focussed, a brilliant visionary, and innovative; and her aim: to have her own company in two years.
("I still remember the day when I stepped in KC and saw him listening to his Dadi Ma's words with apt attention in the lobby. It was his first day at work and the first interview as the boss of KC, and it was also my first interview. We were both starting our professional journey on the same day. I entered the room with a file containing my academic achievements. I was dressed professionally just like the girls in Allen Solly Ads. He asked me how I knew Dev and I answered through a common friend but I added lest he thought that I am a ladder loving person, I would like to get the job based on my interview performance and not someone's recommendation. My biggest mistake, I guess, I did not tell him about my relation with Nayantara because she asked me not to as he did not see her in a positive light.")
Why was Mann attracted to her?
The attraction was mutual and it was not a one-sided love affair and she was one of the reasons for the alteration of his persona. His heart for sure used to skip a beat seeing her smile mysteriously. The strong, confident, outgoing personality made him fall for her as she was completely opposite to his mother who preferred to walk away and not fight for her rights. In his mind she was a meek woman and willingly allowed others to ruin her life and then she abandoned him. And Sam's intelligent ideas and caring attitude stamped the deal. She was perfect according to him and they complemented each other.
he told me on a date, he liked my confidence and complete dedication to work,
the zeal to learn and along with all that I was also a caring and vice-free
person. He loved me the most when I smiled and laughed at my silly jokes. We
were meant to be together for life -- that is what we thought.")
Nayantara manipulated and pushed her into
committing a series of blunders, giving the impression that she was only after
Mann's money and was trapping him. Being ambitious does not mean one is negative,
and Sameera was not at all a gold-digger but a series of incidents painted her in
black. She wanted to achieve but not at the expense of letting go her love or
cheating on him.
(She always dreamed of holding the reins of KC and its bank balance by marrying Dev. She loved Dev but only because she thought he was sitting on a pile of gold. The day she came to know that MSK is the real heir and holds the majority share in the company, her evil mind started working on a stratagem to shift the balance in her favour. I was made to believe that MSK was playing with my emotions and that we do not belong to the same status. I was pushed to the corner and I had to do what I had to do. I did commit an irrevocable blunder and had no time to explain my side of the story. Also, it was my ego that did not let me speak in my defence. I did take the money from Dadi Ma as a loan to begin my dream venture when MSK was on a tour -- I had planned to surprise him. I did repay it back with interest to NT but I guess no one knows about it.)
An Important Part of Mann's Life:
She did matter in the past and can be the final nail that completely altered the persona of MSK. Mann does not talk about his past because he likes to block everything that makes him feel miserable and emotionally weak. She is there in his subconscious mind and he believes that Nayantara asked her to play with his emotions and benefit from it. She is important part of his past life and will matter when she reappears in the present. Till then, he likes to believe that it's not worth talking about and give it undue importance. Sameera is a closed chapter but a chapter that has taught him to be careful, not trust easily, and doubt everyone's intentions.
("Our relationship was not a fling but we were never married and I am not hiding his child. If we were married, everyone would have known about it. He still is an honest person and was then also in the past and hiding a marriage is not in his character.")
How will Sameera affect Geet?
What Mann had with Sameera was also love that did not work out, and a love that was not meant to last for long. It was based more on attraction than mutual understanding and trust. Geet and Mann were destined to meet and be together for life. Geet is not his second love or a rebound love but the first true love. Theirs is the union of two souls and they found each other after meeting not the right ones. In all love stories, one experiences true love only once, otherwise they flop big time.
(I'll return to see if I still hold importance in MSK's life. I'll clear all his misunderstandings. I just hope he still longs for my presence in his life just like I do. Arjun has called me and has hinted that his company is doing something for MSK. Yes, we still get along really well though I have not spoken to Nayatara again after we accused each other openly in KC. I know a little about Geet.)
(Final Word: I am insignificant but
significant enough to create a palpable tension to last for a while.).

For your reading pleasure today are some thoughts from yours truly on a potential Sameera character sketch based on what has been shown in Geet thus far. While Sameera has merely garnered a couple of mentions in the passing, some of these, in my humble opinion, should be considered when the Geet writers develop this character prior to her series entry...namely:
Phew...I don't know about you...I'm exhausted now! Feeling up to reading some more?
Alrighty then...moving on to Sam's character sketch! Finally...you say? Me too...same pinch!
In all potential sketch examples, some characteristics I see for Sameera & a young Maan are:
Sam...A modern Paro
In this example, I see Sam as a modern simplified Paro to Geet's Chandramukhi. Now...before you throw your chappals at me, do not think of the old classic story...think contemporary adaptation...kind of like but not even remotely Dev D. Confused? I like the basic Dev D plot idea of Dev moving on with Chandramukhi instead of pining for Paro and think this would play out very well in Geet!
Some highlights of this avatar of Sam are:
