For every actor, a new film brings in a new challenge.

Speaking of this, the star of the upcoming film with Mahesh Babu, Pooja Hegde is all set to learn a form of martial art for her next Bollywood film with producer Sajid Nadiadwala. Pooja, who is currently busy with the promotions of her upcoming film Maharshi, is a known face in Bollywood as well.

Pooja debuted in Bollywood back in 2016 opposite superstar Hrithik Roshan in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Mohenjo Daro and was loved by all. Also, she has worked with Akshay Kumar from Bollywood. Now, amidst all the buzz about her upcoming film, Maharshi, rumour has it that Pooja has started prepping for her next big film with Sajid Nadiadwala.

Great stuff. This girl looks like a breath of fresh air and so happy she is getting chances in Bollywood. Good competitor for mousey AB, who glared at PH at the filmfare awards when the latter presented an award.
