Pooja Hegde is perhaps in the best phase of her career these days. Having shared screen space with the likes of Mahesh Babu, Ram Charan, NTR, Allu Arjun, and Prabhas in recent times, her acting career in Telugu is going great guns. In Hindi, she scored a huge hit with Housefull 4, which, despite bad reviews, went on to collect nearly Rs 200 crores.
Meanwhile, rumours are abuzz in Bollywood that she’s one of the leading contenders to bag the lead role opposite Salman Khan in Kick 2. To be directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, the film is expected to release in summer, 2021. Since Pooja Hegde has signed a three film deal with Sajid Nadiadwala, she has bright chances to bag the lead role; however, it remains to be seen what Salman Khan and Sajid decide in the next few months. Jacqueline Fernandez and Kriti Sanon are also said to be in contention for the role, and it remains to be seen who gets the role.
Meanwhile, Pooja is busy juggling between Akhil-Bommarillu Bhaskar’s next and Prabhas’ Jaan. Both the films are slated for release in 2020, whereas Pooja’s immediate next release, Ala Vaikuntapuramulo, in which she’s paired opposite Allu Arjun is slated for release in January, 2020.
