The model-turned-actress Pooja Hegde made her debut with the much-talked about Hrithik Roshan-starrer, Mohenjo Daro, which went bust. Following the debacle, she moved down South where she snapped up films with all the big names like Mahesh Babu, Allu Arjun and Jr NTR.
Now, she’s back in B-Town with the fourth instalment of Sajid Nadiadwala’s comic franchise Housefull.
In November, the actress kicks off a 20-day schedule of her next, an “intense, romantic saga”, in which she is paired with Prabhas.
“It’s set in 1970s Europe, the scale is humongous and it’s one of the best scripts I’ve come across,” she says, quick to add that her co-star, a superstar down South, is one of the nicest human beings she knows.
“It is amazing that something as big as Bahubali happened to such a nice person. He’s so chilled out, considerate.”
She had shot for a few days with Prabhas a year ago during which they bonded over their shared passion for cinema, nature and food.
“He loves to eat and he loves to feed. His cook brought great meals for us on the set,” she reminisces, admitting that shooting for the two films is a completely different experience.
“The Prabhas film is a mature love story and I come on the set all prepped up while for Housefull, the lesser you prepare, the better it is as you need to play off each other energies.”
