Pooja Hegde turns stand-up comedian for Akhil 4
The romcom, starring Akhil Akkineni, is directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar
Actor Pooja Hegde is all geared up to slip into a unique role in her upcoming film, starring Akhil Akkineni. Directed by Bommarillu Bhaskar, the romcom, commonly referred to as Akhil 4, features Pooja as a regional language stand-up comedian.
"It's going to be an interesting character for Pooja, who drives the narration with her actions and banters with Akhil. She felt that this character came her way at the right time and is the perfect follow up to Valmiki, wherein she played a college-goer. She is thrilled to play this part and is enjoying every bit of it," shares a source.
Besides Akhil 4, Pooja is also shooting for the Allu Arjun-starrer Ala Vaikuntapuramlo and Prabhas' period love story, Jaan. She has also finished shooting for her Bollywood comic caper Housefull 4, which is slated for release this Diwali.
