Actress Pooja Jhaveri says that her role in upcoming Telugu romantic-drama "Dwaraka", which stars Vijay Deverakonda in the lead, gave her lot of scope to perform.
"My role is such that it has given me immense scope to perform, unlike other roles in my career so far. My character is the reason behind everything the hero does in the movie. In a way, the entire story revolves around my role," Pooja told IANS.
Directed by Srinivasa Ravindra, the film features Vijay in the role of a thief.
"It's an interesting story of how a thief (played by Vijay) becomes a baba. What are the circumstances behind his transformation? All these things form the crux of the story. Although it's not an out-and-out commercial film, it does have its commercial moments," she said.
In the film, which features a battalion of actors, Pooja plays a Hyderabadi girl.
"She's just out of college and she's being forced to get married. However, she's against the idea and has something else on her mind," she said, adding it was a lot of fun working on the project.
"In each scene, there were about ten characters on screen. In that case, you can imagine the number of actors who worked in the film. The set was always busy, full of people," she added.
Talking about the experience of working with Vijay, who is basking in the success of "Pellichoopulu", she said: "His film released around the time when about 70 per cent of our film was completed. Despite the success and fame, nothing has changed about him. He's a great friend and a wonderful co-star."
Currently awaiting the release of Dhanush-starrer Tamil film "Thodari", Pooja is in talks for a few Telugu projects.
