Bala's Paradesi, in which Pooja plays a significant role, will have to do without the actress as it appears. Pooja, citing prior commitments, had to walk out of the project. While Pooja's part was supposed to be shot in about 20 days last month, owing to the industry strike, the shoots did not happen.
Now that the strike is settled and as work is resuming, Pooja has another commitment that requires her to fly to Australia. Sources in the Bala camp mentioned that Pooja could not spare a few days since her Australia trip is planned months before and could not be postponed either.
