From the past couple of weeks, there are talks that Harish Shankar managed to rope in dusky beauty Pooja Hegde for the role of the heroine in his next film Valmiki which is under shoot. Varun Tej and Atharvaa Murali are playing the lead roles and the film is inspired from Tamil blockbuster Jigarthanda. But reports reveal that Pooja is no longer a part of this prestigious project.
She is not happy with the pay cheque and walked out of the project. Harish Shankar and his team are in hunt for the leading lady currently and an official announcement would be made. Pooja even was unable to accommodate her dates for the project as she signed couple of Bollywood projects. Produced by 14 Reels Plus, Valmiki releases later this year.
