Pooja Hegde

  1. Nathalie Emmanuel, Furious 7, 2014.   Bollywood schedules prevented Pooja – or Deepika Padukone – from joining Vin Diesel’s Fast & Furious family as Ramsey… leaving Bollywood represented by Ali Fazal.
  2. Rooney Mara, Pan, 2015.  The new Bollywood star, sumptuous new French find Adéle Exarchopoulos and the 13 Years A Slave support-Oscar winner, Lupita Nyong’o, were in UK director Joe Wright’s loop for Tiger Lily. Mara later bravely told the UK’s Daily Telegraph that as a white actress, she regretted playing the Native American character. “I really hate, hate, hate that I’m on that side of the whitewashing conversation… I never want to be on that side of it again. I can understand why people were upset and frustrated.”
