Last year, the lovely Pooja Hegde made quite an emphatic comeback to Telugu cinemas when the much-hyped ‘Duvvada Jagannadham’ opened to a thunderous response at the box office and received favourable reviews along the way. An action-comedy, it was directed by Harish Shankar, it featured her in a glamorous avatar and also served as the perfect platform for Allu Arjun to showcase his dancing abilities. Talking about the film, the actress had said that it helped her evolve as an actress.
“My first two films were traditional ones, so I wanted something new as compared to them. Then Harish narrated the story of this film; he said that it was a glamorous role. I also wanted to work with Allu Arjun since a long time — so everything came together with this film. The atmosphere was always jovial… not a single dull moment. Allu Arjun is a generous actor and always gives tips in dance and acting. I genuinely feel DJ made me a better actor,” she had told a leading news agency.
Now, with 2017 in the rearview, Pooja has more good news for her fans. In an exciting development, she just took to Twitter and confirmed that she will be playing the female lead in Mahesh Babu’s film with director Vamsi Paidapally.
“Glad to announce my next Telugu film with @urstrulyMahesh and @directorvamshi Looking forward to get together and create a beautiful film for you’ll to watch ️ Excited 🤞,” she wrote on Twitter while confirming the good news.
Well, this is a nice pick and it will be worth watching whether the two are able to set the screen on fire.
On a related note, ‘Prince’ is currently gearing up from the release of ‘Bharath Ane Nenu which releases in April. It is a Koratala Siva directorial and also has Kiara Advani in a key role.
