Kamal Haasan has been connected to his Vishwaroopam co-star Pooja Kumar after she was spotted at his family functions.
Indian origin American actress Pooja Kumar was just recently connected to veteran actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan after being snapped during events with his friends and family. The actress, who has worked with Haasan in three movies, has actually cleared the air about them.
Pooja was Haasan’s co-star in Vishwaroopam 1 and 2 and Uthama Villain. She is very near the Tamil star and his household. “I have known Kamal Haasan sir and his family for a long time now. Ever since I started working with him, I have known his family – his brother who is a producer, his daughters – Shruti and Akshara, everyone. That’s how I was a part of their family functions as well,” DNA quoted her as telling Tollywood.net.
There are even reports making the rounds that Pooja might be a part of Kamal’s forthcoming project Thalaivan Irukkiran. But she dismissed those, too. “No, I’m not a part of the project Thalaivan Irukkiran. Not as of yet, but who knows,” Pooja stated.
Pooja was born in St. Louis, Missouri, US. Her parents are immigrants from India. She has appeared in Hollywood projects such as Male on a Ledge, Brawl in Cell Block 99 and Bollywood Hero. In 2003, she received the Screen Actors Guild Emerging Actress Award for Flavors. She played Kamal Haasan’s wife in the action thriller Vishwaroopam that came out in 2013.
