The Mungaru Male actress is playing Saranya, who is born and brought up in a village and later she gets exposed to the urban lifestyle. Director Shiva Ganapathi suggested her to change her look to suit the role. "I had to change my look from that of a village girl to a city babe," says Pooja.
Recently, the actress shot for a romantic sequence with her co-star Raghu. She had to look hot in the sequence. She has done it. Now she says, "I looked young and cute." However, Pooja will appear with the short hairdo in at least 80% of this untitled film.
