Condemning the rumors on his film and the film’s heroine, the director of the film Valmiki, Harish Shankar said that Pooja Hegde was very much a part of the project. But, today, we came to know that Pooja Hegde walked out of the film citing the remuneration as a reason. Pooja Hegde was very disappointed with the remuneration offered her by the producers and decided to take an exit from the film.
This came as a big shock to Harish Shankar who expected that Pooja Hegde will stay in the project. The film stars Varun Tej in the lead role and he is reprising the role played by Bobby Simha in the original named Jigarthanda. This Telugu remake will now have another heroine and the makers initiated a search already for the same.
