Vastavam Web: Dusky beauty Pooja Hegde is currently enjoying the success of Mahesh Babu-starrer Maharshi. From the past couple of weeks, there are talks that Harish Shankar managed to rope in dusky beauty Pooja Hegde for the role of the heroine in his next film Valmiki which is under shoot. Varun Tej and Atharvaa Murali are playing the lead roles and the film is inspired from Tamil blockbuster Jigarthanda. But reports reveal that Pooja is no longer a part of this prestigious project. She is not happy with the pay cheque and walked out of the project. Harish Shankar and his team failed to convince Pooja Hegde and they are now in the hunt for the right actress who can do justice for the role. The film is a remake of Tamil hit Jigarthanda and features Varun Tej and Tamil actor Atharva Murali in the lead roles.
