The 40-year-old says she is open to the idea of facing the camera again, as long as she gets to act her age. Pooja first turned producer with Tamanna in 1998. Later, she took up film direction with Paap in 2003. “I’d like to act my age. I am proud to be 40 because I have survived till 40 with my soul intact. I don’t think there are many people who have survived their business like that,” says Pooja. “So, I would like to play women of my age on screen. If somebody can accommodate my girth and my mirth in a roll, then I am your woman. I am not going to go historical, go under the knife and starve myself because of a role... no chance,” she adds.
