Pooja Hegde, who makes her Bollywood debut opposite Hrithik Roshan, has said working with the actor was surreal for her as she is a huge fan. “I have been a fan of him. He was my favourite actor. So, to actually do a film with him years later is quite surreal. When I started modelling one of my friends had said that she hopes I get to work with Hrithik one day. And that came true in my very first film. Dreams do come true,” she said.
The 25-year-old actor will be seen playing Hrithik’s love interest in Ashutosh Gowariker’s historical saga set in the backdrop of the Indus Valley civilization.
Before foraying into Bollywood, the model-actress had worked in Tamil superhero film Mugamoodi besides being part of Telugu films Oka Laila Kosam and Mukunda.

“A debut film is an audition to the world because no one has ever seen anything of yours before. People are waiting to see you. We live in the time where everyone expects you to be good right from your first film. Our film is a pure love story. Yet it is still charming, naughty and fun. It is very different from the techno crazy, fast paced, neon life that we lead today,” she said.
“I have given my best shot. I have tried to do a good job. I am nervous but I think the nervous energy is good energy,” she added.
