It has been a super busy year for Pooja Hegde, who recently recovered from Covid-19. She has multiple movies from various film industries across India in her kitty, one including Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, which features her opposite Salman Khan for the first time in her career.
She got onto sets immediately after the lockdown eased last year.
She shot for Rohit Shetty’s Cirkus with Ranveer Singh, she also shot for her Pan-India project Radhe Shyam with Prabhas as well as for Acharyaa with Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan before the recent lockdowns were reimposed. Talking about working in the new normal, Pooja shares, “Times are such that we have to make sanitising, keeping a distance and wearing a mask a habit. Only when people feel safe and secure can things get back on track on the work front. Also, we have to learn to live with Covid-19. It will be a long battle to get to the other side. Being careful and cautious is the only key.”
Pooja Hegde, on May 5, said she has tested negative for Covid-19.
The 30-year-old actor, who was under home quarantine, shared the news on Twitter and thanked her fans for praying for her speedy recovery. “I have recovered well, kicked stupid corona’s butt and finally tested negative! Yay! All your wishes and healing energy seemed to have done its magic. Forever grateful. Stay safe out there,” Hegde wrote. Talking about working with Salman Khan in Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, Pooja was quoted by a leading daily, “It’s a fun film that will make people laugh. We had planned to begin it a while ago, but the pandemic affected the shooting schedules. Once things get a little better, we should hopefully be able to start shooting. I am extremely eager and excited to work with Salman Khan. It’s my first film with him, and he’s someone I look forward to interacting with on the set.”
