Pooja Hegde who was seen in Thalapathy Vijay starrer 'Beast', will now be seen in Vijay Deverakonda starrer 'Jana Gana Mana'. The film is being directed by Puri Jagannadh. According to reports, she has hiked now her fees for the film. The actress was reportedly paid £350,000 for ‘Beast’ movie and now she will be getting £500,000 for her upcoming movie ‘Jana Gana Mana’. This news comes despite her recent films 'Radhe Shyam', 'Beast' and 'Acharya' not doing well at the box office.

Meanwhile, recently at Cannes Film Festival, Pooja expressed her desire to make more films for women. She said that she wanted to do so as she thought women were not represented enough. She went on to say, “When I see a powerful woman on film, you want to emulate them, you want to be them, and I hope I can be a small part of that in terms of inspiring girls in India to just dream a little bigger and tap their inner potential."

The actress will also be seen in 'SSMB28' opposite Mahesh Babu, 'Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali' with Salman Khan and in 'Cirkus' opposite Ranveer Singh.
