Harish Shankar directed celluloid is slated to hit the big screens in the summer of 2017. Hunt for more co-stars is going on and Pooja is emphasizing on learning Tamil language for this new project produced by Dil Raju. Allu will play the role of ‘Duvvada Jagannadham’ in this film while the gorgeous lady will render his love interest.

Makers have kicked off shooting of this film and are going to launch it next year. This is first time for Pooja Hegde to star in South Indian films. Her debut venture failed to perform well at box office as it collapsed due to collision with Akshay Kumar, Ileana D’Cruz and Isha Gupta starrer ‘Rustom’ which released two days before Indian Independence Day.
