Pooja Hegde on big back-to-back flops Radhe Shyam, Beast, Acharya: ‘I know what I did in each film’

Actress Pooja Hegde has worked with some of the biggest stars in the country, but each of her three films of 2022-Rad Shyam prabhas starring, Acharya Starring Chiranjeevi, Ram Charan and Monster Starring Vijay – Frustrated at the box office. To make matters worse, they are three of the biggest South Indian floppers at a time when the South Indian film industries were seen as the dominant force at the box office across the country.

In an interview with Film Companion on the sidelines of 2022 Cannes Film FestivalPooja, who is attending as a national delegate, spoke about the disappointing box office performance of these films and said that if nothing else, her performance was appreciated in each of these three films. She highlighted the success of Beast’s “Arabic Kuthu” and said it was received with a standing ovation.

Asked how she would handle such failures, she said, “It’s part of the game. I’ve had six films in a row, and I’m very grateful for that, because it’s so rare, to have six films in a row that have done amazingly well. Every film has its destiny. If I start taking my hits seriously, I’ll have to deal with those that don’t do well, and that will eventually come. They are bound to happen. Then I will have to take them seriously.”

She continued, “Do I doubt my instinct? Not at all. Because I know what I’ve done in every movie. I did Radhe Shyam because it was such a solid role, a movie I had to do. I hope filmmakers around the world will notice, ‘Well, I’ve She was good in the movie, maybe with a good director…maybe we could use it that way…”I don’t know, but I hope it happens. I knew I’d get a chance to play such an interesting role, in a commercial.”

Speaking of Acharya and the Beast, she said, “Acharya was of course a guest appearance. It was a cameo, I loved my role. I played a village girl. It was a great look, with two pieces of chute and oil in my hair, and that was sexy. She was naughty, it was fun , and people loved my role in the movie. I got a lot of it. The beast too, Arabic Kuthu happened. The shooting of the movie was very interesting, Nelson is a good director, I loved Doctor, he has a great voice. I would like to work with him again. The Arabic Kuthu has given me a lot.. At the end of the day, we are artists, I love putting smiles on people’s faces.”

Next, Pooja will be seen returning to Hindi films with Rohit Shetty’s Circus, starring Ranveer Singh, and actor Salman Khan Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, who has recently started filming. Pooja made her Bollywood debut with Mohenjo Daro, directed by Ashutosh Gowariker and starring Hrithik Roshan, but this movie bombed.
