Pooja Hegde as Duvvada Jagannadham Heroine Officially Confirmed


Bollywood’s model turned actress Pooja Hegde who starred in the flick Mohenjo Daro that did not do well at the Box Office was at a career risk as the last movie she acted in was the first she acted in a Bollywood flick. Sad to say that this model turned actress Pooja Hegde is almost at career risk of being named a ‘flop actress’ by several.

Back to Tollywood

It is said that she is set her foot back in Tollywood after doing a couple of movies like Mukunda and Oka Laila Kosam this time with a biggie. The actress was offered a leading female lead role in the Stylish Star Allu Arjun’s next movie (DJ) Duvvada Jagannadam. This movie will be directed by Harish Shankar from ‘Gabbar Singh’ fame.

Harish Shankar from ‘Gabbar Singh’ fame has done several movies earlier including Telugu and Tamil movies. It is a rare opportunity for the offer to come her way given the fact that Pooja Hegde has no offers at hand and especially after the Mohenjo Daro’s disastrous outcome.

Shruti Haasan Part II

It was earlier noted that the same director Harish Shankar cleared the rough career path was taking for the slim and beautiful South Indian beauty Shruti Haasan with the movie ‘Gabbar Singh’. This leaves many wondering if it is going to be the same repeat with the model turned actress Pooja Hegde, a former beauty pageant. We hope to see this one going big with this uncommon opportunity coming by her way.


Duvvada Jagannadam, or DJ as it is well known by the Telugu Audience, written and directed by Harish Shankar will be produced by Dil Raju under his banner Sri Venkateswara Creations and music composer Devi Sri Prasad is going to score the sound track for the movie.
