"My story is called Anamika. It has very talented and hardworking actors Harsh Chaya and Aditya Seal as well. We are all very passionate about the story and together worked depict this story as truthfully as possible. My story is about a strong woman who wants to be in charge of her destiny.
There is something that she doesn't like about her life and she decides to change it. She is a true representation of women who want to change things and I believe it includes every woman. She passes through her ups and downs, struggles, bad days and eventually sticks out to make her destiny. It's a must watch for everyone in society," Pooja told The Hans India.
No matter in whichever profession a woman works in, she has to face many challenges. Pooja agrees the same and says, " It's very challenging for women in this industry. We talk a lot about appearances.
Be it the hair, skin, height, waist size, age. If you have a purpose and a desire only then you will be successful. You need passion and purpose. And women should always tell themselves that they are good and you would soon see results."
During the Covid pandemic, the Over-the-top (OTT) platforms has received a huge number of acceptance by the audience. "It is going to get bigger and bigger. For artistes and directors, it's like a playground. One can do 5, 10 or 45 minutes of the film. So I hope more people work on OTT and I get to do more," ends Pooja.
