Pooja Hegde: I want to do a light romantic film now

Having made her Bollywood debut with heavy-duty period film, ‘Mohenjo Daro’, actress Pooja Hegde feels a light-hearted love story as the next project would be an ideal choice for her. “Ideally, I would want to do a fun romantic movie. Though I don’t mind another period film because I always go for the story and my role more than the genre, I do feel working on something light and easy would be better right now. I want to do a film where I can walk in jeans on the sets!” the actress told . The 25-year old actress says as a viewer she has enjoyed watching films like ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ and would want to do movies with contemporary setting. “I loved watching ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ and ‘Dil Chahta Hai’. These are the kind of movies I want to do. I like romantic dramas, love stories are my favourite genre. I have watched ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ more than 100 times! And now, I like all Imtiaz Ali films. I would love to do something like that.”
Despite the poor critical response to the Hrithik Roshan-starrer, Pooja is happy that people liked her look and performance in the movie. “I have read a lot of reviews on social media and yes, there has been mixed response to the film. But I am happy that people have liked me. They have praised my look and said they want to see more of me. I think that is a very good thing.”
The actress feels it is hard to establish oneself in the industry as an outsider but she is keen to sign her next project soon. “I was contractually bound to not sign anything till ‘Mohenjo Daro’ release. I feel lucky that many people have called me after the film, showing interest in signing me. I hope to make some interesting announcements very soon.
