Pooja Hegde is on a roll! With a huge number of films in her kitty, the actress has no time to herself. Due to the on-going global pandemic nationwide lockdown was imposed across the country and because of which her projects had been stalled as shooting amid the pandemic was impossible.
But, soon after the restrictions were eased slightly, Pooja has been unstoppable. She has been continuously shooting across the country without any break for her seven upcoming films.
However, she took time out of her busy schedule and spoke about two of her major films, Cirkus and Radhe Shyam, from among her huge line-up. In Cirkus she is paired alongside Ranveer Singh and in Radhe Shyam she will be seen opposite Prabhas.

Talking about how she selects movies, Pooja says that script is not the only factor that motivates her to choose a project but its also the director. She has revealed that the director is the main reason she signs on the dotted lines.
Narrating an incident about her film Cirkus where she is paired alongside Ranveer Singh, she shared that she was so excited about the project being helmed by Rohit Shetty that she never cared to ask him about the male lead and when she found out that it was Ranveer Singh, she was stunned.
If someone like a Rajkumar Hirani, Sanjay Leela Bhansali or SS Rajamouli calls me tomorrow, I’m not going to ask them for a narration; I’ll say yes immediately. In fact, that’s what happened when Rohit Shetty approached me for Cirkus. I was so excited that I forgot to ask him who the male lead was. Then when I found out it was Ranveer, I was all like, whaaaat!?- Pooja Hegde
Speaking about her Pan-India film, Radhe Shyam where she will be seen alongside megastar Prabhas, Pooja added,
Radhe Shyam is a period flick with fashion and romance woven into it, and I love that the female lead’s role is phenomenal. It’s something that is really close to my heart, and you are going to see a lot of me in it, as the story-line tracks mine and Prabhas’ journey together.- Pooja Hegde
