‘Don’t want to be just an erotica star,’ says Poonam Pandey


New Delhi: Poonam Pandey is one of the most talked-about actors in the industry. She was recently seen in Kangana Ranaut’s Badass reality show ‘Lock Upp’. After the show, she talked to a leading website and talked about her wish of working in Bollywood soon, but she neither got the job nor the appreciation she deserved.

She said, “Look whether it is fan base or work, this reality show has started changing my life. Whatever I have done in my life, I have always been judged. If you remember, I have also done films. But there came a time when I stopped getting work in the industry. I do not hold anyone responsible for this, most people may not have seen my work.”

“It was necessary for me that people should talk to me, connect. The kind of love and respect I am getting after this show, I am loving it because I was yearning for it, I was craving for work.”

The actor further said that after the lockup, she is getting offers for web series too. “I have to work and I don’t want to be just an erotica star. Many people probably do not even know that I have done acting and dance courses. I am sitting after doing all this. I want to be a part of Bollywood, and do films. I got a web series after this show, there are some more meetings too. Hope all is well.”

“Now I am hoping that they give me work. I hope you see me working with Kangana Ranaut as well because I love her too, she laughed. I have got a lot of love from both these women. This is no less than a trophy for me,” she concluded.

Poonam Pandey made her Bollywood debut with the film Nasha in 2013. She also acted in other movies like Aa Gaya Hero, The Journey of Karma and more.
