Hrithik Roshan finds love in debutante Pooja Hegde

Well, do not get confused with the title, it is true that Bollywood handsome Hrithik Roshan has found a new love interest but it is all in reel and not in real. He will be romancing 23-year-old debutante Pooja Hegde in the much awaited Ashutosh Gowariker’s ‘Mohenjo Daro’.

Gowariker is happy to have Pooja Hegde on board. "I am extremely happy to have found Pooja Hegde. She is very natural as an actress and has an elegance and poise that will make the character attractive and endearing. Both these strengths with a degree of freshness adds the required spark to the 'Mohenjo Daro' love story," Gowariker said in a statement here.

Pooja Hegde was the second runner up of Miss Universe India 2010. Ashutosh Gowariker was so impressed with the dusky beauty Pooja that he went all out to praise the former beauty queen in the press.

In the past, Gowariker has successfully launched new faces like Gracy Singh in ‘Lagaan’ and Gayatri Joshi in ‘Swades’. The pre-production of ‘Mohenjo Daro’ is on in full swing, and it is slated to go on floors this year end.

Pooja has appeared in two south Indian films - Tamil action-drama ‘Mugamoodi’ and Telugu film ‘Oka Laila Kosam’.
