Pooja Hegde: Career

Pooja Hegde participated in the Miss India Talented honor and won the title in 2009. In the same year, she appeared in Miss India 2009 competition, where she got eliminated in the first few rounds. Later, she participated in the Miss Universe competition and became the second runner-up. Pooja Hegde got her first break in the film industry through Mysskin’s film “Mugamoodi” in 2012. She worked alongside Jiiva and played the part of Shakthi in the movie. She played the role of a cute and fun-loving woman. She got selected for the role after she caught the attention of the director from her appearances in the beauty pageants.

Hegde wrote all the dialogues in English to memorize and understand them. Her native language is Tulu, which is a bit similar to Tamil. The film performed incredibly well during the opening. However, it failed to satisfy the critics. Due to the negative reviews from critics, the film failed at the box office. Two years later, she appeared opposite Naga Chaitanya in Oka Laila Kosam. This romantic comedy movie performed well at the box office and Hegde’s performance received a lot of appreciation from the critics. Pooja got nominated for the Best Actress at Filmfare Awards south.

Pooja bagged her first Hindi project in Ashutosh Gowariker’s film “Mohenjo Daro”. She was featured opposite Hrithik Roshan.

The movie was released in 2016. Unfortunately, it underperformed. A year later, Hegde’s Telugu film was released. She worked with Allu Arjun in the movie Jagannadham.

In the subsequent year, Pooja worked on three movies including Gaddalakonda, Maharshi, and Housefull 4. She made a return to the Hindi film fraternity after a long gap.

Released in 2019, Housefull 4 was one of the highest-grossing movies of the year with a whopping box office revenue of INR 280 Crore. She played the role of Pooja and Rajkumari Mala in the film. She got to work alongside Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda, Ritesh Deshmukh, and Bobby Deol. Her movie “Ala Vaikunthpurramuloo” was a commercial hit with a box office collection of INR 250 Crore.
