Pooja Kumar who made her debut in Tamil films in late 1990’s went back to US since the film sank at the box office. She made a comeback playing Kamal Haasan’s wife in the latter’s production and directorial venture ‘Viswaroopam’ which turned out as the blockbuster hit of 2013.
She was retained for the same role in ‘Viswaroopam 2’ and also roped into play an important role with the veteran actor in ‘Uttama Villain’.
In the Ramesh Aravind directed flick, she plays an 8th century princess who is mentally ill. It is to be noted that the 21st century portions of the film have been completed and the 8th century portions in which Kamal Haasan plays a theater artiste ‘Uttaman’ are being canned in the sets erected in Chennai.
Poojakumar who visited the city on and off to take part in shootings has been staying in hotels. Now the actress has relocated to Chennai and will be staying in an apartment.
