Model-turned-actor Poonam Pandey who was in the Capital recently, shot back when asked if she was using controversies to build her Bollywood career. “Am I a controversy queen? I don’t create controversies, I fall into them. I do what I feel like doing, maybe some people think it’s too gutsy for them to digest (laughs),” said the 21-year-old. A case in point is an announcement by Poonam before Valentine’s Day, on Twitter, that the most romantic message posted for her would get a bikini worn by her, in her flick Nasha, as a prize.
When asked, if she expected the number of hits (about 7 lakhs) that she got on this post, she said, “I didn’t know that people would die for my bikini. There was actually a fight going on, on Twitter, and I would say to all my tweethearts that I love you guys (blows kisses).”
About her debut movie, Nasha, the actor said, “It is a story of a girl who juggles between lust and love. It has a lot of bold, yet emotional moments that the youth can identify with.”
