Actress Pooja Hegde, who has commenced work on upcoming Telugu film “Duvvada Jagannadham”, says she has been looking forward to an opportunity to work with co-star Allu Arjun for a long time.
Last seen on screen in Hrithik Roshan-starrer “Mohenjo Daro”, Pooja is very excited about “Duvvada Jagannadham”, which is being helmed by Harish Shankar.
“My fans on social media are very active. When I was working on ‘Mohenjo Daro’, they kept telling me, please do a Telugu film soon. I realised I missed my Telugu fans. All this got me really excited when ‘Duvvada Jagannadham’ was offered and it came to me at the right time,” she said.
Calling it a “fun” film, she said it was important for her to do a “light-hearted entertainer” after a magnum opus like “Mohenjo Daro”.
“I have always wanted to work with Allu Arjun, and this project had everything I was looking for. Although I can’t talk about my character, I Am confident that it will be very different from anything I have done so far in Telugu filmdom,” she added.
Asked if she is keen to match steps with Arjun, who is a terrific dancer, Pooja said: “I’m looking forward to working with him in general. I never really got to dance in my Telugu films, so I’m hoping there’s scope for dancing in this project.”
