Pooja Hegde competed at the Miss India 2009 competition but got eliminated at early round and became the second runner up in the following year. She made her film debut with Mysskin’s Tamil superhero film Mugamoodi opposite Jiiva in 2012. She played the female lead in the film and she memorized Tamil in English for the film. It was a highly expected film and took a grand opening, but ended up with a surprising commercial failure with negative reviews, though she was nominated for SIIMA Award for Best Female Debutant – Tamil. Her second film was the Telugu Oka Laila Kosam in 2014 opposite Naga Chaitanya.
It was a commercial success, and she got the nominations at Filmfare Award for Best Actress – Telugu and SIIMA Award for Best Female Debutante – Telugu. In the same year, she appeared in another Telugu film Mukunda opposite Varun Tej. The film did not perform at the box office. Pooja Hegde marked her Bollywood debut opposite Hrithik Roshan in Ashutosh Gowariker’s forthcoming period film Mohenjo Daro, which is set against the backdrop of the Indus Valley civilization. The film could not do well financially though; she won Lux Rose Golden Award 2016 for The Best Debutant of the Year. She is currently working on a Telugu and a Hindi film.
