The badly needed success for 'Mungaru Male' heroine has come after six years from 'Dhandupalya'. In the six years she has acted in 30 films but 'Dhandupalya' Kannada film that showcased the natural talent in Pooja Gandhi earned her good name in the box office.
'Dhandupalya' is a big hit today in Kannada. It is running to packed houses in the third week in over 70 theatres. The happiness in Pooja Gandhi was evident when she said those who protested against her for posters are convinced. Protestors are praising me says Pooja Gandhi.
Pooja Gandhi considers her mother as the first best analyst of her films. Looking at 'Dhandupalya' Kannada cinema my mother told me that I have acted like Smitha Patil. Pooja Gandhi visits as NGO to various villages and slum has in fact helped her to take up this rugged and rude role for her.
The courage this film 'Dhandupalya' given me is a boon for me to take up experiment films says Pooja Gandhi who is now acting in a Malayalam film 'Mad Daddy'.
