According to the Bangalore Mirror, Pooja Gandhi was in Hyderabad a few days ago to promote her Telugu film Dandupalyam, the dubbed version of Kannada film Dandupalya. What caught the attention of some Sandalwood industry people was Anand and Pooja stayed in a same hotel. She was supposed to come with her mother but she was spotted with Arun.
On November 15, 2012, Mungaaru Male girl Pooja Gandhi and Anand Gowda got engaged in a private function, which was restricted to their family members. However, they shockingly broke up on December 15, just a month after the engagement.
While the actress blamed her beau for the break up and accused Anand of suspecting her character, Arun said that her mother's remark on him and his family made him call off the wedding. Later, a doctor named Kiran Thontabailu came into the picture and added spice to the story.
