Pooja Kumar played as Modern in Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam and she became popular overnight. Now she is back shooting with Kamal Haasan for Uttama Villan. She says, ‘I got to play a non-Tamil-speaking modern-day actress, who is offered a character that speaks old, archaic, chaste Tamil. Being a trained dancer, it also gave me an opportunity to do three different dance set-pieces in the film – a commercial number, another one set in an earlier period and then, a dance choreography as part of a stage play. It was challenging to do all these in a single film,’ says Pooja.
