With scripts and roles it’s never easy to make a decision once you read the script. Actors don’t know weather they want the role or not as soon as they read the script. Some read the script and decide that they don’t want to ruin their image by playing the role – some do and some don’t. Bollywood model, actress Pooja Misrra recently walked out of Tamil Nadu’s ,Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s movie Amma. The multilingual film being shot in Bangalore and directed by Faisal Saif is set to release later next year.
Faisal Saif the director of Jigyaasa which brought him to the limelight in Bollywood with an award-winning movie was picked up at many film festivals. Pooja was requested to play the role as a CID cop for the movie as a guest appearance but she walked out two days later.
Pooja and the director were old friends and colleagues, and when the director called her and insisted that she be a part of the project. Pooja obliged, However when she reached the sets and actually read the script , she was in for an unpleasant surprise as the role did not do her justice! Besides her record label was calling her incessantly to adhere to deadlines and be back in Mumbai for the recording. So Pooja graciously bowed out even offering a replacement.
“The project was not one for me, the script did not justify my talent. I am sure I will work on something better soon with Faisal.”
Pooja is currently back in Mumbai ready to record and complete her debut solo project as a singer!
