Our next question to Pooja was about which actor she thinks would be ideal to play Protima in the project. Pooja said: ”
The narrative is the most important aspect to focus on first.” Just like her strong opinions, Pooja also has a strong creative streak. Confirming that she will personally contribute to the project, she said, “I will be involved in the project from the script to the final product.”
Pooja’s mother, Protima, was a model turned dancer and she established the Nrityagram school in Bangalore. She married Kabir Bedi in 1969 but they later divorced in 1974. She took the Odissi dance form and eventually gave up everything to become a sanyasin when her son and Pooja’s brother Siddharth died by suicide after her battle against schizophrenia.
