Assuring her fans that she will be shedding her inhibitions soon, Poonam was quoted in The Times of India (TOI) as saying, "I won't wait for four years for another Indian WC victory. I have a surprise in store for my fans and I will keep up my promise. I've told them on a social networking site that I've already stripped 50 per cent. The rest will happen soon."
Poonam also revealed that she is quite at ease whenever she has to wear a bikini for her photo shoots. “I am very comfortable in a bikini, be it for a shoot or for a film," Poonam told TOI. Talking about the leaked MMS that featured her in a two-piece bikini, Poonam said that she doesn"t have any problem with the video; instead, she liked it very much and wished to meet the person who shot it.
When asked if the MMS footage was a hoax, the model said, "It was not fake. Someone shot it during a photo shoot. I actually want to meet that person, because I liked the video. I love it when people download my photos." After appearing on the reality show 'Khatron Ke Khiladi season 4", hosted by Akshay Kumar, Poonam now wishes to sign movies, and that too with the B-town A-listers.
According to Sources, in a period of 45 days she has refused 31 movie offers, as the projects had the likes of Rahul Mahajan and Ashmit Patel as her co-stars and no big guns from the industry. “I turned down 31 offers in the last 45 days. It was not about the role, but the names involved. I want to act with the big guns of the Bollywood industry," boasted Poonam.
“Why should I work with a small production house, when I'm getting offers from big banners?" she added. Though Poonam is getting several offers for item numbers, she doesn"t wish to begin her career as an item girl. The bombshell, who is now looking forward to doing movies under big banners, said, "I get calls practically every day with offers of item numbers. There was a call from a Telugu director for a song, but I turned it down as I don't want to begin my career with an item number."
