After a long guessing game, it was in the first week of November things were made clear that New-York based Pooja Kumar will be the leading lady of Kamal Hassan‘s magnum opus ‘Viswaroopam‘, which is taking shape fast.
A lesser known fact about the actress is that she had acted in a Tamil movie before. It was the KR directed ‘Kadal Rojave‘, a romantic entertainer which had Vishnu and Pooja Kumar in the lead roles.
The movie which hit the screens more than a decade ago, became popular for one of its songs ‘Ilavenil idhu vaigasi maadham…‘ composed by Ilayaraja. When everyone was expecting that Pooja Kumar would make it big in Vishnu, she left for the US then.
Now, she is back in Tamil cinema with ‘Viswaroopam‘. The actress, who has starred in a Broadway play called Barriers besides having won the Miss India USA pageant, is shooting in Chennai currently with Kamal Hassan, we learn.
