Born to Manjunath and Latha Hegde, Pooja Hegde was a beauty pageant contestant before foraying into the world of films. Her first big screen project was Tamil film Mugamoodi released in 2012, which was followed by appearances in Telugu films Oka Laila Kosam and Mukunda, both of which released in 2014. In 2016, she made her Bollywood debut with period drama Mohenjo Daro opposite Hrithik Roshan. While her performance received mixed reviews from the critics, the film bombed at the box-office. Pooja will be next seen in Race 3.
