Saturday 04th October 2014 06:29 EDT

The girl from Bangalore who made her debut in K-town with ‘Mugamoodi’ has surprised everyone by bagging the lead role in Hrithik Roshan’s next “Mohenhja Daro.” The movie will be directed by Ashutosh Gowariker of “Lagaan” and “Jodhaa Akbar’ fame. Since Pooja had allotted a lot of dates for Hrithik’s movie; she wasn’t in a position to sign the dotted lines when the ace director Maniratnam approached her for his next. If sources are to be believed, Nithya Menon, who was hitting the headlines for bagging the female lead role in Mani’s next has been dropped for unknown reasons, and the team is scouting for a suitable female lead to pair opposite to Dulquer Salman. An official confirmation regarding this subject is expected to come in a week's time.
