- Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde play lead roles in Mohenjo Daro
- Hrithik is a really good actor: Pooja Hegde
- Pooja Hegde also said that she was a ‘bit worried’ as it’s her debut film
Did she get the jitters?
“Of course. He (Hrithik) is a really good actor. The plus point of working with him is that you are so involved in a scene that acting for me became easier. Since it’s my debut film, I was a bit worried. But because of his level of intensity in a particular scene, I was just reacting after a point rather than acting. It’s good to work with someone like that,” Pooja told IANS.
So, who broke the ice?
Hrithik answered this one.
“I broke the ice with a chalk. I fed her some chalk. She was looking for diet food and I offered her a protein bar but it was actually a chalk that I had found on the set. She ate it up and later, I told her that it was actually chalk,” he said.
Pooja shared that she and Hrithik had met during a test shoot as well.
“I think the ice broke when he (Hrithik) thought that I was from south India,” said the actress, who has featured in southern films likeMukunda and Mugamoodi.
Reminiscing about that day, Hrithik said: “I even asked her, ‘When are you going back?’ She said, ‘I am going back at 6 pm’ Then I asked, ‘What time is your flight?’ She asked ‘What flight? I live in Bandra.’ I thought she lived in south India.”
Mohenjo Daro, directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, will release on August 12.
