Varun Tej's Valmiki is set to hit the screens on this Friday and we can't hide our excitement for it. While the film is heading towards its wide release, Pooja Hegde revealed her look from the film named Sridevi and called it as "Innocent but feisty...". Director of the film Harish Shankar has said that her character will be a complete surprise. In an interview with PinkVilla, he told, "Pooja Hegde is the most important character in the second half, she will be a complete surprise. That is why I am not revealing much about her. However, her character and song are only put in because the story demands it, not for commercial reasons."
In February, Pooja talked about the pay disparity and had said, "But now, if you look at the trend that's going on female-driven films are doing very well," Pooja told PTI, citing Raazi and Veere Di Wedding as examples. "They (female-driven films) are all doing really well. So, I am hoping that now that the women are also pulling in 100-crore films... I think they are going to get paid as much as the men," she said. "But we need more female producers also to help us out here...something that has to be collective effort (to achieve wage parity)," Pooja added. Producers have now realised that women-driven films are making money. "2018 definitely belonged to women, and I am hoping 2019 will also be the same. People are making female-oriented films," she said.
Coming back to Valmiki, it is the remake of Jigarthanda and also stars Atharvaa in key roles. So, are you excited for it? Tweet to us @bollywood_life
