Pooja Batra in conversation with Divya Solgama
Firstly Pooja, walk us through your role in Mirror Game…
I play a psychologist with the police department. And as the movie progresses, one gets to know of Dr Roy’s (my character) involvement in the case.
But your fans would love to know that why such a huge gap Pooja?
I have been doing movies lately. I did a Punjabi movie, called as ‘Killer Punjabi’, last year which released around the same time. I did a Hollywood movie, called as ‘One Under The Sun’, where I played an astronaut in it and got released in March this year itself. However, in Bollywood, I was not offered any good roles and the ones which were offered were clichéd.
Do you find any changes in Bollywood?
Yes, there is a lot of change in Bollywood. Starting from the script to the filmmakers, a lot has changed. For instance, I have never been a part of such movie that is doing so much for promotions. These things were never there in our times, so in short, the whole approach has been changed. And hopefully for the better!
You are also associated with some social activities, so kindly share about the same…
I am associated with a lot of CRY events in US, which are basically raising funds for marginalized kids in India because nobody is seen doing that much for them here. So we try and raise money for them.
Who are your friends in Bollywood?
I am friendly to all of my co-stars that I have worked with. I come to India very often and I make an effort to be in touch with them.
How do you maintain yourself so well?
Stay active and be happy.
What’s next now after Mirror Game?
I have done a documentary in Hollywood titled ‘Save Her’. It’s based on girl.
