Pooja Hegde is one of the busiest actresses in the film industry with two big Telugu movies, which is Prabhas starrer Radhe Shyam and Akhil Akkineni starrer Most Eligible Bachelor. Radhe Shyam is the most anticipated film and every poster about the film breaks all the records. Now, Pooja Hegde spilled some beans on the equation with Prabhas and the release date.
Revealing that the film will hit screens sometime next year, Pooja said in a recent interview, “Radhe Shyam is a love story so I and Prabhas needed to bond off-screen too for our chemistry on-screen to work (sic.)”
Speaking about Prabhas, Pooja said, “Contrary to what many believe, Prabhas is not shy at all. He’s quite goofy and naughty, he would nag me all the time on set. He was pulling my leg about doing both Hindi and Telugu films and I tested him back by telling him I was only following in his footsteps (sic.)”
She also revealed her experience of shooting for Radhe Shyam in Italy during the pandemic. The actress said, “We had a total no hugs policy on the sets of Radhe Shyam and would get tested for coronavirus every five days to ensure safety. It’s really difficult to get permission to shoot abroad during the pandemic, but the filmmakers managed to get it. We would wear masks all through but at some point the mask had to come off, especially if I had makeup on, it was quite an experience (sic.)”
Radhe Shyam is directed by Radha Krishna Kumar and produced by UV Creations. The film is being made simultaneously in Hindi and Telugu, while being dubbed in Tamil and Malayalam. The big-budget romantic-drama features an ensemble cast with the likes of Priyadarshi, Sachin Khedekar, Murli Sharma, Riddhi Kumar, Sasha Chettri, Kunaal Roy Kapur and Sathyan in pivotal roles.
