“You have no clue how many people have been asking me about this. The rumours don’t affect me at all. As a matter of fact, there’s nothing to say about it. People can think what they want, but Hrithik and I are just good friends. He’s pretty chilled out and we share a good rapport.”

  • A graduate in commerce, Pooja wanted to grow up to become a postman and considered it to be the coolest job ever. She also gave serious thought to the law as a profession. The crush of millions you young men today, Pooja says back in the day she used to be an ugly duckling, a tomboy with short hair, and the farthest thing from a glamorous actress.
