Pooja Hegde who made her debut in the period film Mohenjo Daro likes to work on a light-hearted love story as the next project.
“Ideally, I would want to do a fun romantic movie. Though I don’t mind another period film because I always go for the story and my role more than the genre, I do feel working on something light and easy would be better right now. I want to do a film where I can walk in jeans on the sets!” the actress said.
The 25-year-old actress says she has enjoyed watching films like “Dil Chahta Hai” and “Band Baaaja Baaraat” and would want to do movies like that with contemporary setting.
“I loved watching ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ and ‘Dil Chahta Hai’. These are the kind of movies I want to do. I like romantic dramas, love stories are my favourite genre. I have watched ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ more than 100 times! And now, I like all Imtiaz Ali films. I would love to do something like that.”
Despite the poor critical response to the Hrithik Roshan-starrer, Pooja is happy that people liked her look and performance in the movie. “I have read a lot of reviews on social media and yes, there has been mixed response to the film. But I am happy that people have liked me. They have praised my look and said they want to see more of me. I think that is a very good thing.”
The actress feels it is hard to establish oneself in the industry as an outsider but she is keen to sign her next project soon.
Hegde was full of praise for her co-star, Hrithik, saying the actor helped her during the shooting.
“When you first look at Hrithik, all you see is how good looking he is. He for sure appears as a Greek God… But once you start working with him, the good looks become secondary and his genuineness shines through”. – CINEWS
