MUMBAI:  Debutant Pooja Hegde said she never imagined that she will be working in a film made on Mohenjo Daro, a topic she found boring to study during her school days.

"I'd read Mohenjo Daro chapter in school and was so bored. I never imagined I will do a film based or set in that era. The younger generation is picking up history books again and are interested to know things," Pooja told reporters here at a promotional event of filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama "Mohenjo Daro".

"This film is Ashutosh Gowariker's version of Mohenjo Daro. I think it will generate curiosity among audience about the story, the era," she said.

Pooja, who has earlier done films in South, said she is grateful to Gowariker and film's lead actor Hrithik Roshan for this grand debut in Bollywood.

"There are lot of girls who had great debut, but who had Hrithik Roshan? Thank you so much. Hrithik has been a very gracious person...He has been very encouraging. He was my friend whenever I needed help."

Hrithik too was all praises for his co-star.

"The first time I met Pooja was during a photo-shoot where we both had to look into each others eyes, we had to romance. I was taken aback.

"The kind of courage and purity she got on screen struck me. She is a special and rare talent. I am sure she will go a long way," he said.
