Sandeep Sejwal (above left), in March this year, is back to work now. The 25-year-old says that not much has changed after marriage. “Sandeep is very supportive of my profession and understands when I have long shooting schedules. He is happy that I’m following my passion and loves watching me on screen,” says Pooja.
The actor, who went to Switzerland for her honeymoon, says, “I wanted to see snow for a long time. So this was the first time I encountered snow, and that too with my life partner. I couldn’t have been more excited,” says Pooja.
As talks veer to her professional life, Pooja is confident about whatever role she takes up. Unlike many TV actors, who feel uncomfortable wearing a swimsuit on-screen, Pooja is very comfortable with her body. “I have always been very happy with the way I look, even on days when I don’t work out. I have been extremely comfortable while wearing swimsuits [for my show Swim Team] and I’m also comfortable wearing heavy costumes for my current show. I have also grown up as an actor, so such scenes are no different than others and all you need is confidence in yourself,” adds Pooja.
