NY,Oct07:Actress Pooja Hegde has made a strong comeback to Tollywood and she’s raring to go. Currently shooting for a yet-untitled Telugu project with Bellamkonda Srinivas, she has been roped in for a special number in Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam 1985. Most major big Telugu releases in recent past have had special numbers featuring leading actresses such as Kajal Aggarwal and Tamannaah Bhatia. The best and the most recent example being Tamannaah, who set the screen on fire with her presence in Swing Zara song in Jr NTR’s Jai Lava Kusa.
Apparently, Pooja will be seen in a peppy folk number in Rangasthalam 1985, and will match steps with Ram Charan, to be seen in a full-length rural avatar. The makers for long were on the lookout for a leadling lady to do this special song. Since they loved the energy with which Pooja danced in DJ, they felt she could do justice to the song and immediately roped her in. The song is most likely to be shot over the weekend or in the coming weeks. A special set has been erected in Hyderabad where it will be shot.
Directed by Sukumar, the film also stars Samantha Ruth Prabhu. It’s tipped to be a romantic drama set against the backdrop of 1980s. The film has been predominantly shot in rural areas of Godavari district. It also stars Aadi Pinisetty and Jagapathi Babu in crucial roles.
