Pooja was born in Mumbai on 13th October, 1990. However, she has family roots in Mangalore, Karnataka. As name indicates, she is a Vokkaliga by caste, a Kannadiga caste. She has done schooling and college education from Mumbai.

Pooja was always dreaming about becoming a model. However, she never compromised on her education and used to be considered a bright student. She is also fluent in various languages – Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, English and Hindi. It is quite surprising that in spite of spending time in Mumbai, she is not at home in Marathi language.


After trying her hand at various beauty pageant contests, she started to get projects for modelling from 2010. She had worked in few South Indian films, but couldn’t impress the critics and majority of audiences. However, there were always an aura of invincibility in her performances and everyone were saying that it is a matter of time when Pooja will be noticed by big banner.

In 2014, she got a call from wife of Ashutosh Gowarikar to come for audition. Actually, Ashutosh’ wife had seen her in a modeling video and suggested her husband to take audition of Pooja for Mohenjo Daro. Pooja cleared all rounds and was selected for the film. This was a dream come true for her as working in a big banner and with Hrithik Roshan was something she always wanted to do. Pooja had concentrated so much for this film that she had rejected all offers, including one from Mani Ratnam.

It should be underlined here that Ashutosh’ wife had noticed Pooja in famous Hero Maestro advertisement which also featured Ranbit Kapoor.
