As an aspiring actress based in Mumbai or Chennai, the best platform for you would be Hyderabad because Tollywood has always been accommodating for non local beauties. While many have come and become queens, some returned to their base.
This has happened mostly with the Mumbai babes and Tollywood would have missed yet another one like this. She is none other than the cutie pie Pooja Hegde. Though she made her debut with Mukunda and then Oka Laila Kosam she got a big ticket in Mumbai.
She got to pair with the Greek God of Bollywood Hrithik Roshan for the movie Mohenjo Daro. Had this movie become a hit, Pooja would have done continuous Bollywood flicks. Fortunately for us, that movie flunked and since that is gone she came back. That was a close shave!
