Pooja Hegde Explained The Biggest Hurdle While Entering the Film Industry
During the promotion of Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, Pooja Hegde appeared in an interview with The Indian Express. In the interaction, the actress explained that it wasn’t easy for her to dive into the South film industry after being born and raised in Mumbai.
Pooja also revealed that she used to memorise and dictate her lines before shooting. In her words, Pooja Hegde said, “The first day I got my Telugu lines, I was like, ‘Ok, oh my God.’ I am a Mangalorean; we speak Tulu and Telugu is very different.
“So, when I got the lines, I had to mug them up, understand where to take pauses and have an assistant director say the lines, which I would record and keep playing on a loop until I got the groove and have memorised. Now I can speak Telugu and feel if you give me 10 lines in Spanish, I would be able to learn it and emote it. It has made me a tougher actor for sure.”

Pooja Hegde also explained how tough her South Indian journey was. She said, “It was difficult in the sense that getting the right films took some time. My journey hasn’t been of someone who had one hit and what followed was smooth sailing.”
“There have been highs and lows, there was a year when no work came to me and then suddenly work started flowing. I have seen all of that, which is why when today something is successful, I also remember the times when it wasn’t. That phase set me up to be the actor that I am today, because, at that time when my films didn’t do well, I moved on, ushered through it.”
