Slender beauty Pooja Hegde is the most happening heroine in Tollywood. She romanced almost all top stars in the industry. Starting from Varun Tej in Mukunda, she went on to romance Allu Arjun in DJ, NTR in Aravinda Sametha, Mahesh Babu in Maharshi, sizzled in a special song with Ram Charan in Rangasthalam and is romancing Prabhas in Jaan.
She is romancing Allu Arjun once again in Trivikram Srinivas's direction. It is known that the makers of Varun Tej's next Valmiki directed by Harish Shankar roped in Pooja Hegde as the heroine. Valmiki is the remake of Tamil hit Jigarthanda.
Sources say Pooja Hegde gave a shock to the mega project by walking out of it. Earlier rumors spread that Pooja was paid a whopping Rs 2 crs for her role.
A source reveals, “Though the makers and the actress have stated that it’s because of her dates, she is miffed with the remuneration and the director’s tweet about it. With Pooja Hegde out of the film, the makers are now searching for another actress.”
