Actress Pooja, who impressed one and all with her performance in Bala’s ‘Naan Kadavul’, was also offered the lead role in Bala’s ‘Paradesi’. The shooting was supposed to start in March last year. But, due to FEFSI strike, the shooting kept repeatedly postponing. Meanwhile, Pooja had to go to Australia for 15 days to attend special screenings of her Sri Lankan film.

In a recent interview, Pooja has revealed that she had cried at Bala’s office for backing off from the project. Bala understood her situation and told her to go to Australia. Pooja is making her comeback with an upcoming thriller film ‘Vidiyum Munn’.
