Tamil actress Pooja Umashankar quotes
“My dream partner would be extremely God fearing, caring, should love animals, kids and the list goes on and on…”
“I knew they (fans) were building a temple because they had asked for my permission. But I told them not to go with the construction as it was insane to waste such efforts, time and money for an actor. We had a similar situation here where temple was built for Kushboo madam and it had to be bulldozed. I was not happy in the first place when the temple was built and am not sad for it coming down” [About building a temple for her]
“Life is a gift given by God and I love it.”
“My dream role would be that of village girl.”
“My first day of shoot was my most unforgettable day”
“I dislike disloyalty”
“Love is the most wonderful feeling God has ever created.”
