Pooja Hegde’s career is shaping up just the way she wanted it to be, the last few years have been extremely good for the Maharshi heroine. The former Miss Universe India runner-up made her acting debut with Tamil film Mugamoodi directed by Mysskin. She took a sabbatical from acting for a couple of years before featuring in a Telugu film Oka Laila Kosam. She then got her first big break with the historical Hindi film Mohenjo Daro co-starring with Hrithik Roshan. 
In recent times, she has acted in big star films like Duvvada Jagannadham, Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava, Maharshi, and the recently released Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. Post the success of all these films, she has now signed to star in Powerstar Pawan Kalyan film directed by Harish Shankar. Pawan is currently working on Venu Sriram’s Vakeel Saab which happens to be the remake of Pink. Pawan will kick start this Harish Shankar project very soon. An official confirmation regarding Pooja Hegde’s inclusion is still awaited.
