Pooja Hegde blows the beans on Beast and reveals some intriguing facts about Thalapathy Vijay.
Pooja Hegde disclosed a few fascinating insights about her forthcoming Tamil film, Beast, during the release of Prabhas co-starrer Pan-India flick Radhe Shyam. We asked Pooja what the public could anticipate from Beast now that she has nearly completed filming for Nelson Dilipkumar’s directorial debut. It’s going to be a wild journey, the stunner says.
Knowing Nelson sir as a filmmaker, you would chuckle and expect Doctor (Sivakarthikeyan starrer) meets Thalapathy Vijay sort of film,” she continued.
Pooja went on to offer a few lesser-known facts about Vijay, which tell volumes about his celebrity. “It was great,” Pooja remarked of her time working with the Master actor. He is really nice and, in my opinion, the hardest working actor I have ever worked with. He’s done 64 films and is still very kind. Arrives early-onset and stays till the end. He never enters his vanity and is constantly outside. I’ve never met somebody so dedicated to their career. He truly allows others to shine and is completely at ease doing so. That is why he is a celebrity.
The Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo actress also admitted that staying away from Hindi film for a long period after Mohenjo Daro was a deliberate decision.
“It was, without a doubt, a deliberate action.” Mohenjo Daro was a fantastic debut, without a doubt, and it starred Hrithik Roshan and was directed by Ashutosh Gowariker. It was just amazing, and there was no doubt that it would perform well. However, when you don’t come from a filmmaking family and your first picture fails to go well, it sets you back a little…but I had to move on, and I was receiving very amazing projects down south. I did Houseful at the time, which helped me earn a role with Salman K.So each step has taken me to where I am now. The nicest aspect, I would say, is that South gave me so much, loved me, accepted me, and gave me strength. I never imagined that I wouldn’t be seen in Hindi for two years. I was always OK. Now, I believe the lines have blurred.
