The audience saw actor Pooja Hegde wear gowns and heavy costumes in her epic drama film, Mohenjodaro. Now that she is done with the film, the actor wants to take up a film which the young generation can relate to.
“My biggest dream right now is to go on sets and just wear jeans and shirt. It would take me hours to get ready for this film. It took my me 25 minutes to just get into the costume. I want to play a nice young girl now. I really want to be able to say deliver dialogues in a casual tone like ‘arrey yaar’,” says Hegde, who played the role of princess Chaani alongside Hrithik Roshan, in the film directed by Ashutosh Gowariker.
The actor was a runner up at the Miss Universe India 2010 competition before she took up acting. After doing few roles in the Telugu film industry, Hegde took up Bollywood.
Talking about her experience with B’town, the actor says, “My personality is such that I am a little shy.I take my time to become friends with people. Thankfully, Bollywood has been really warm and nice to me but for someone who is new to the industry, it can take some time to be comfortable.”

Asked what kind of films is she planning to take up, Hegde says she is still in the process of sorting out her projects.
“Till now I was contractually bound to not take up any film. Now that this film has released, I am looking at what scripts that have been offered to me. I haven’t said yes to any project so far. Let us see what I take up next,” she says.
