Gorgeous beauty Pooja Hegde has been one of those actresses who did not have initial luck even though she had all the necessities to win the affection of the audience. Her first films Mukunda and Oka Laila Kosam did not become big hits and the actress could not gain big market too. After that, even her Bollywood debut, Mohenjo-daro failed to impress the audience. Many started naming the actress as Iron and Unlucky. But then, she got a blessing in disguise as Bunny and his team decided to give Pooja the chance to shine in Duvvada Jagannadam.
She utilised it well and did acquire a lot of name for her glamorous role. She said she would immediately agree to do any film that stars Allu Arjun without thinking about her character. She also said he is her favourite actor from South and praised him saying he is Andhra Micheal Jackson!
