Introduction to Pooja Batra
Me : Hi Pooja, Thank you so much for sparing the time to speak with me. So, what’s keeping you busy during these lockdown days?
Me : Wow! That’s a lot of work!! Now, the next one….. If you hadn’t been an actor, what would you be?
Me : Whoa! That’s good to know….Now which is your most favorite character or role on the silver screen (Bollywood/Hollywood)? If you were to play it, what, if anything, would you do differently?
I don’t know how right now I would have played them. That too depends on a myriad of things…..
Me : True, I guess…. well, now for the next one…Who’s your favorite Hollywood Director and what Movie? Why?
Me : Hey, he’s one of my favorites too! A great actor who was an even better director! Now next…What is your personal favorite performance of yourself?
Me : Oh! That’s good to hear…Virasat was a real good movie…In life, what makes you smile and what scares you the most?
Life in general, I am a happy person and like to be always chirpy. Heaven is a place on Earth!
What scares me the most is losing my parents, my brothers or my hubby, My dear friends. The thought of it scares me…..😨
Me : Couldn’t agree more…Could you narrate one favorite humorous story from your acting career?
Pooja Batra : There are numerous funny instances from my movie set but one that I have to share…
This is when I was shooting my 1st movie Virasat– I had a very dramatic scene which was a turning point in the movie & we were shooting in a remote village in the south of India.
I was to break down in this scene and break a photo frame in anger. I was told to do that shot in one take as the set department told me that there was only one photo frame and the next replacement could only come next week.
I did do the scene in one take & much later after the schedule was over, I was told that it was a joke everyone pulled on me!
They had at least 5 photo frames!!!
Me : Ha Ha!! They really pulled your leg, huh? Next one now…If you ever got stranded on a remote island, and you could choose 5 items to have with you, which ones would they be?
2- My 📱
3- Dental Floss
4-A reusable water bottle
5- A dictionary !!
