Turning Up The Heat – Pooja Kumar

She’s the perfect blend of American spunk and Indian demureness. Pooja Kumar gives style a new definition with her hot bod and lissome ways.


Pooja Kumar goes gaga over her sizzling, summer cover photo shoot for our sister publication, South Scope. Located in ECR, the Reflection luxury villa is perfect eye-candy and has completely impressed Pooja. “This villa was absolutely beautiful and aesthetically done up, situated in the outskirts of the city. I loved the furniture and the colour scheme. It gave a modern feel. And the best part about shooting here was that, it felt like one big family hanging out together. It was really, something original and shooting was fun. You will want to work many hours in such an ambience.” says Pooja, who terms the theme of the photo shoot as ‘Fun time in summer’. “The sunglasses from Lawrence and Mayo added much to the photo shoot. They were very edgy,” says the star.

Although she started her film journey in Tamil with Kadhal Rojavae in 2000, Pooja who has worked with Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan in Vishwaroopam, is also the heroine of the recently-released Uttama Villain and will soon be seen with the South Indian superstar next in Vishwaroopam 2. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that she is currently one of Kamal Haasan’s hot favourites! With roots in Indian classical forms of dance like Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi and Kathak and a background in theatre and modeling, Pooja says she is being offered many more interesting roles in Indian cinema, especially in Tamil.
