Actress Pooja Hedge stands by Kareena Kapoor Khan in the Sita debacle. For the unversed, the latter had recently fallen prey to online trolling. The reason was that the Jab We Met actress had allegedly asked for 12 crores to play the role of Sita in the mythological film. Netizens began discussing what should be the ideal fee to play such a role. While some found Kareena’s demands valid, others were rather disappointed and offended and called for her immediate boycott. 

Now, actress Pooja Hedge has expressed her support for Kareena. Speaking with ETimes, the Oka Laila Kosam actress made her stance clear. When pointed out that nobody would have had an issue with an actor demanding what he deserves, Hedge readily agreed. She even went on to quote the line from the famous Amar Prem song, “Kuch toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hain kehna” (People will always have something to say, that is what they do).  

Pooja further stated, “That's a part and parcel of the job and I am sure even Kareena herself was unfazed by it. More power to her! She is asking for what she thinks she is worth and it is the producer's call at the end of the day on what he thinks he can pay. So more power to her. The more women realise their worth, the more they will even get what they deserve."

On the work front, Pooja has a long lineup of big commercial films. This includes Salman Khan-starrer Bhaijaan, Radhe Shyam with Prabhas, Cirkus alongside Ranveer Singh, Most Eligible Bachelor, among others.

Anonymous : IDK..why this media is not showing the whole truth.People are Boycotting her not because she is asking for this money but because she doesn't fit in this role.Let her demand 25 crores, that is producers problem not ours..But the public doesn't want her to play Sita because neither she fits in this role nor is her nature good enough for such pious role.She should not play this role,IMO.When SSR died she said "if you don't wanna watch our film than don't watch".So that's why we are boycotting her now.We will not watch her movies.Let her karma hit her hard.
