Last week, Pooja Gandhi sat at the ticket counter of Abhinay theatre and issued tickets to the audience who came to watch Anu. No, she was not participating in a film shooting as a ticket counter employee. This was a real life act from Pooja, who wanted to promote her film Anu and help the producer recover his money. And as expected, the idea worked. As word spread that Pooja, Anus heroine herself was giving tickets, people gathered in crowds to watch her and watch the film.
Normally, stars appear to watch the first show of their film and leave all other matters in the hands of the producer and distributor. But Pooja proved that while she is passionate about acting, she is also interested in bringing people to watch her films.
Pooja"s dedication to work is not a new thing. She is the first heroine from the North to dub in Kannada within a few years of entering Sandalwood. She has put her heart and soul to create Anu, in which she dons the role of an action heroine.
