Actress Pooja Kumar has been in the limelight off and on since her face was spread all over Times Square in New York in 2002 when she appeared as a model in the posters promoting Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Broadway show Bombay Dreams. Over the years, she has been part of several other film projects, which currently includes the lead role opposite Kamal Haasan in his latest film Viswaroopam.

Regarding the experiences with this film, Pooja spoke on Skype, “There aren’t any words to describe what kind of human being Kamal Sir is. He is the epitome of a great artist. The fact that he continues to innovate, create, and wants to give his audience something new every time, inspires actors like us — that you can’t just keep doing the same thing that you feel comfortable with. And he believes in unlearning everything and starting afresh.”
