TIL Desk Bollywood/ Actress Pooja Hegde, who has commenced work on upcoming Telugu film Duvvada Jagannadham, says she has been looking forward to an opportunity to work with co-star Allu Arjun for a long time.
“My fans on social media are very active. When I was working on Mohenjo Daro, they kept telling me, please do a Telugu film soon. I realised I missed my Telugu fans. All this got me really excited when Duvvada Jagannadham was offered and it came to me at the right time,” she said. Calling it a “fun” film, she said it was important for her to do a “light-hearted entertainer” after a magnum opus like Mohenjo Daro.
“I have always wanted to work with Allu Arjun, and this project had everything I was looking for. Although I can’t talk about my character, I’m confident that it will be very different from anything I have done so far in Telugu filmdom,” she added.
Asked if she is keen to match steps with Arjun, who is a terrific dancer, Pooja said: “I’m looking forward to working with him in general. I never really got to dance in my Telugu films, so I’m hoping there’s scope for dancing in this project.” Talking about Mohenjo Daro, which failed to click at the box office, she said the failure didn’t upset her.
