Mumbai: Former Miss India Pooja Chopra, who is making her Bollywood debut with Commando, shared many things about the movie with the media at the movie promotion. Pooja says that Commando is one of a kind movie, where girl is the one who messes with the goons. Before Commando, Pooja did small roles in films like Fashion and Heroine. Sonika Mishra from Oneindia did an exclusive interview with the actress. Read the excerpts:
You won the Miss India Title in 2009, after that you came into Bollywood. Was Bollywood always on your mind?
I never wanted to enter the film industry. If I had not won Miss India I would not have come to Bollywood. After winning the Miss India title, my mother told me that I should work in Bollywood.
After winning Miss India-Miss World title, girls come to Bollywood but many of them fail to make any mark. What according to you is the reason behind it?
Many actresses have come to Bollywood from the fashion world like Priyanka and Aishwarya, who are also successful. But it totally depends on your luck. If you are lucky, you will be hit.
Tell us about the film and your role in Commando.
Commando is a typical action movie, but it has romance too. I am playing the role of Simrut, who messes with the goons and later the hero comes and saves her. Simrut is a naughty and lively girl. She enjoys life to the fullest.
Do you have any dream role?
Simrut is my dream role. While playing Simrut I enjoyed like Kareena and cried like Madhubala. I always wanted to play a character like Simrut. This character is very similar to me. I am exactly like Simrut in my real life.
Any particular actor or director with whom you want to work?
I want to work with every actor. As far as directors are concerned, I would love to work with Imtiaz Ali, Ayan Mukherjee and Rajkumar.
