Poonam Bajwa entered the Tamil cinema in 2008 with “Cheval”, where she starred alongside Bharathu. This gripping story was her introduction to Kollywood. Later, she graced the screen in hits like “Thenavattu” and “Kacheri Arambam”. Especially noteworthy is the “Kacheri Kacheri” song from “Kacheri Arambadam”, which gained widespread acclaim.
Despite initial success, there were phases where roles didn’t align with her vision. But Poonam, showcasing her versatility, embraced varied roles across Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam cinema. Over time, she made a conscious decision to opt for roles that truly resonate with her as an actress, marking a transition from just glamorous roles.
During a recent candid interview, she shared intriguing insights about her cinematic journey. Reflecting on her role in “Romeo and Juliet”, she mentioned, “The decision to be part of this film wasn’t premeditated. I was taken by its script and cast. Playing the main character wasn’t about avoiding a secondary role, it was about connecting with the character.”
She also reminisced about her first encounter with most of the film’s crew. On her very first day on set, she was asked to wear just a white shirt, sans pants. She remarked, “This attire was completely new to me. Naturally, I was a tad bit shy during that scene.” Such moments, she implies, make the journey unforgettable.
