Pooja Hegde’s upcoming romantic drama starring Prabhas will soon hit the theatres. The trailer of the film ha has created quite a buzz among fans about their onscreen chemistry. Pooja says, “Chemistry is something that just happens.” Pooja also goes on to say that Prabhas is known for his shy nature and he is quite jovial within his circle of close friends.
“Sometimes you know someone really well but it doesn’t translate onscreen, and sometimes you meet someone for the first time but it just clicks because magic happens. I would like to believe that we’re looking really good together,” Pooja said. But this isn’t the first time that her chemistry with a co-star has been noticed. Pooja says on this topic, “People say that I share great chemistry with most of my co-stars, be it Allu Arjun, Akhil Akkineni (in Most Eligible Bachelor; 2021) or Hrithik Roshan (in Mohenjo Daro; 2016). I love love stories. I’ve grown up watching them. And I love to give my all in a scene. Maybe that translates onscreen.”
As she looks forward to Radhe Shyam, she can’t help but ignore the comparisons being drawn to the cult classic Titanic (1997). So, how did she react to the sound engineer Resul Pookutty who claimed that the climax of the former is bigger than that of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet starred? “I started sweating,” Hegde laughs.
But she’s quick to add, “If you see a sinking boat in a film, you end up comparing it to Titanic. Having said that, I’m relieved in a way as I feel we’ve been able to accomplish a similar kind of production design and scale.”
