When I was working on Mohenjo Daro , they kept telling me, please do a Telugu film soon. I realised I missed my Telugu fans. All this got me really excited when Duvvada Jagannadham was offered and it came to me at the right time," she said.Calling it a "fun" film, she said it was important for her to do a "light-hearted entertainer" after a magnum opus like "Mohenjo Daro"."I have always wanted to work with Allu Arjun, and this project had everything I was looking for. Although I can t talk about my character, I Am confident that it will be very different from anything I have done so far in Telugu filmdom," she added.Asked if she is keen to match steps with Arjun, who is a terrific dancer, Pooja said: "I m looking forward to working with him in general. I never really got to dance in my Telugu films, so I m hoping there s scope for dancing in this project."Talking about "Mohenjo Daro", which failed to click at the box office, she said the failure didn t upset her."I want to be a part of films that does well. But the fate of a film is never in our control. Personally, I was more concerned about how I was going to be analyzed as it was my debut, and whether I was going to be appreciated for my performance or not," she said."People appreciated how I looked and some even wished I had a lengthier role, which only means that they liked my performance and wanted to see more of me," she said.
