Model-turned-actress Poonam Pandey says that she doesn’t have famous surnames like Kapoor or Khan but she works hard.
“Neither do I belong to a filmy background nor I am a Kapoor or a Khan but I am a hard worker. It’s all my hard work that I have come this far. I used created controversies of course to gain the limelight. You (media) people made me. Today I thought to do something better,” She was talking at a press conference of her short film “The Weekend”.
Commenting on the recent trend of women-centric films in Bollywood, Ms Pandey said, “It’s a good thing that Bollywood is making more women-centric movies. And since the audience is accepting as well, then why should I do controversy. But jokes apart, I did ‘The Weekend’ because the audience is liking those films. Things are changing. So why not do something better?”
Asked about her announcement to parade naked if India won 2011 cricket world cup, she replied it was a strategy to get films.
“People give 200 auditions out there, I’ve seen it. I just chose the shortcut. People ask me why I do all these things. I say to them it’s my decision what to do and I am happy with what I do.”
About her film THE WEEKEND, Poonam said, “It’s not a porn film. It is a full-fledged film in terms of acting and content.”
Directed by Aryan Singh, the horror short film has been co-produced by Poonam with Suresh Nakum under the banner The World Networks. “The Weekend” was released on September 24th.
