Mumbai (Web Desk): Pooja Hegde has said that she took a conscious break from Bollywood as she wanted to return with a ‘sturdy second movie’.
Hegde, whose debut Hindi film Mohenjo Daro which she was cast opposite Hrithik Roshan failed at the box office.
“An actor’s first film is their showreel to the world. I was under contract, so I hadn’t signed another film during the period. Its failure was heartbreaking. Eventually, South films came along, and work attracted more work. I held off signing Hindi films because I needed a sturdy second movie. I built on the success of Housefull 4, and here I am!” the actress said.
