If the reports are to be believed, actress Pooja Hegde’s health deteriorated further post the surgery for a ligament tear.

It may be recalled that Pooja posted an update on her Instagram account about her health last November where she said she was “doing for the second time in her life” with the hashtags #babysteps #recovery #firststeps.

In the pics, she was seen taking baby steps with the help of a walker. It is evident that suffered a serious injury in her leg which was not enabling her to walk.

Meanwhile, Poojas Hegde’ close friends reportedly told the people in the industry that the actor wanted to give herself a break from films and come back stronger post-recovery.

Now, through her friends, it is learnt that she deliberately wanted to come out of projects like Guntur Kaaram as she couldn’t give half-hearted attempts for the film.

Pooja abruptly vanished from the Telugu silver screen after giving some memorable blockbusters.

Post the success of Ala Vaikuntapurramuloo in January 2020, the actress managed to get positive talk for her performance in Bommarillu Bhasker’s comeback directorial Most Eligible Bachelor (2021).

However, she couldn’t sustain the momentum further with Prabhas-starrer Radhe Shyam (2022).

Later, Vijay’s Beast (2022) fell flat at the Tamil box office. Then, Acharya (2022) with Megastar Chiranjeevi, too, proved to be a dud.

She made a cameo appearance in Anil Ravipudi’s F3: Fun and Frustration (2022) and romancing Salman Khan in Kisi Ka Bhai and Kisi Ki Jaan (2023).

Speculations are rife that she has been reportedly sidelined from Guntur Kaaram. What bothers her fans is the reason being cited for the move — that she is not in a proper shape to give her best as the female lead in the Mahesh Babu-starrer.

But, according to her friends, she deliberately opted to come out of the projects because she didn’t fully recover from the ailment.
