Pooja Hegde won't promote 'Mohenjo Daro' due to illness

27th July 2016

Hrithik Roshan's upcoming film 'Mohenjo Daro' is just a few days away from its release and the promotions for the film are on full swing. While director Ashutosh Gowariker is accompanying Hrithik at a promotional events, Pooja Hegde, the female lead of the film will not be able to promote the film further as she is down with dengue.

A source told Deccan Chronicle, "It was three to four days ago that she was diagnosed with dengue. She was unwell for a few days and decided to undergo a few tests. She had already committed and given her nod to multiple photo shoots and appearances, but will now have to back out. The makers of the film have, however, been very cordial, asking her to take her time to recover before jumping back into action."

Pooja's illness will surely affect the promotional activities of the film. During the launch of the film Hrithik had praised Pooja in his own words. He said, "The first time I met Pooja was at a photo session where we interacted professionally. And in the shoot we had to look into each others eyes and create a romantic moment for Ashutosh's camera and I was taken aback. I have worked with a lot of co-stars but the kind of courage and kind of purity of just being in case of Pooja was something that struck me. And at that moment I knew for a fact that Pooja is very special, a rare talent and a beautiful person who will go a long way in the industry."
