Why Selvamani Slammed Pooja Hegde?

Selvamani is the President of the Tamil Directors Association. He is a well-known and leading Director in the South Film Industry. It is reported that he has made shocking remarks on Pooja Hegde. Director RK Selvamani claimed that Pooja Hegde has been misusing her powers. He said that after attaining popularity, she has been putting an unnecessary burden on the producers. According to Selvamani, Pooja brings as many as 12 people to the various shooting locations which are owing to huge production costs.

He said ‘ What is the need of bringing 12 people?’. In the early stages of Pooja’s career, she used to bring only 1 additional person alongside her to shooting locations. Nowadays, her actions are causing the producers to have to incur high production costs.

However, Pooja Hegde has not issued any statement yet. As a result, the director is unhappy with the way Pooja Hegde is handling things on the work front.
