Has the K.G.F success finally lured Pooja Hegde to Sandalwood?

Pooja Hegde's career graph to date is quite interesting. The Mumbai-born actor forayed into acting through the Tamil film Mugamudi and soon found credible opportunities in the Telugu region which would soon be regarded her main home, considering the volume of opportunities that came her way. There were a couple of high-profile Bollywood gigs thrown into the mix to make her a bonafide "pan-India" actor and yet, a sizeable opportunity from her native state of Karnataka eluded her for some reason. However, it would seem that the K.G.F charm has been cast on her too as the latest reports suggest that she will soon be making her official Sandalwood debut.

Yes, the ongoing round of speculations does state that the Radhe Shyam actress is likely to star opposite the Rocking Star Yash in the latter's much-awaited film with director Narthan. While the official sources are yet to comment on the likelihood of both (Pooja Hegde's starring in a Kannada film or the mega Yash and Narthan collaboration), many claim that the makers of the project are keen on bringing an actor of Hegde's stature on board. It is now a matter of time before someone breathes credibility into these rumors.

Although the Yash-Narthan film is yet to take off, reports suggest that the actor will undergo an impressive physical transformation for the film. Narthan is known for directing the 2017 crime-thriller Mufti starring Shiva Rajkumar and Sriimurali.

Pooja Hegde continues to remain one of the more bankable stars in the Telugu and Tamil film industries with a number of exciting projects to her name. She will be romancing Vijay Devarakonda in Puri Jagannath's Jana Gana Mana and be collaborating with Telugu filmmaker Trivikram Srinivas for Mahesh Babu's untitled 28th film. There's Cirkus (alongside Ranveer Singh) and Salman Khan's Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali in Hindi along with many other opportunities.
