As promised by director Harish Shankar, he released the first look of Pooja Hegde from the movie “Valmiki” and she indeed looked quite different from the roles she had portrayed. Riding a bicycle with a bag to the handlebar, she looked exactly like the 70s and 80s village belle. This is quite a deglamour period look.
You gonna love her, Harish Shankar said.
It was in the direction of Harish Shankar, Pooja Hegde got prominence in Tollywood. He reintroduced her in “Duvvada Jagannadham” and today she has become a top actress.
Pooja Hegde has taken whopping Rs 1.5 Cr remuneration for the work of just ten days for this movie. Harish Shankar is directing this dark comedy which is based on “Jigarthanda”.
