New Delhi, Aug .8 (ANI): Model turned actress, Pooja Hegde, who is all set to mark her Bollywood debut with Ashutosh Gwarikar's historical saga, 'Mohenjo daro' said, working opposite Hrithik Roshan was nothing less than a dream come true for her.

According to a Pinkvilla report, expressing her feeling, the 25-year-old actress said, "You always have a wish-list for Bollywood but to actually have that wish come true and get a role alongside a big actor like Hrithik Roshan is such a pleasure in life. Feels surreal. Most actresses wait for entire lives to work in a period film. I feel really lucky and can say that dreams do come true."

Pooja will be seen playing the 42-year-old actor's love interest in the movie, set in the backdrop of the Indus Valley civilization.

The sultry actress, who was also crowned as the second runner-up at the Miss Universe India 2010 competition, further spoke about her first day shoot with the 'Krishh' actor.

"Well, Hrithik has a great sense of humour. When I met him first he thought I lived in some village from South India and was shocked to know that I stay in Bandra itself (laughs). We had a great laugh over it and that's how it all got started for us. It was a lot of fun on the sets," she said with a grin.

Talking about her decision to commence her Bollywood career with a period drama, she said, "I didn't do it because it's just a period film. I loved the story, the cast, and the director. With your first, they expect you to be brilliant with everything. And I don't think I could have asked for a better film than Mohenjo Daro."

Along with the dashing duo, the film, scheduled to release on August 12, also features Kabir Bedi, Arunoday Singh and Sihasini Malay in vital roles. (ANI)
