Pooja Hegde made her Bollywood debut with period drama ‘Mohenjo Daro’ which released last week. And now, the actress wants to do a fun romantic film.
Pooja said, “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 reveals that as a viewer she likes to watch movies like ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ and would want to be a part of films with contemporary setting. She said, “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.”
‘Mohenjo Daro’ has received mixed reviews. Talking about it, Pooja said, “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 is now keen to sign her next film. She said, “I was contractually bound to not sign anything till ‘Mohenjo Daro’ release. I feel lucky that many people have called me after the film, showing interest in signing me. I hope to make some interesting announcements very soon.”
