Pooja Hedge debuted in Bollywood with Ashutosh Gowariker’s ambitious film Mohenjo Daro (2016), which features superstar Hrithik Roshan as the male lead. The film, mounted on a huge scale, tanked at the box-office which led the actress to focus more on her fledgeling career in the South Indian film industry.

Today, Pooja Hedge is one of the most sought after actresses in the Telugu film industry. She recently delivered a mega-hit Maharshi (2019) opposite Mahesh Babu, which cemented her position further. After establishing herself down South, the actress is trying to set her foot in Bollywood once again.
