Serial Stripper Poonam Pandey Says She Won’t Be Covering Up Because It Will Make Her Fans Angry


MUMBAI – Poonam Pandey is gung-ho about Bengali films and is open to Tollywood directors approaching her with good roles.

Her Nasha might not have worked on all and sundry, but Poonam Pandey continues to be the talk of tinseltown. The model who rose to fame after claiming to go nude for Team India, is set to reprise Mandakini’s iconic wet sari scene in her next. What’s more, she is open to doing Bengali films!

Though not keen to divulge much about her forthcoming film, Poonam says, “I play a gaon ki gori in my next. Sadly, I won’t be able to reveal the film’s name or the cast right now.” Ask her if she is set to remain all covered up in keeping with the village belle character and she says, “That’s not possible. My fans will be very angry with me if I do so and I don’t want that. But yes, the character is similar to Zeenat Aman in Satyam Shivam Sundaram.” While it’s understood that she will be in a sari, ask her if there will be a wet sari scene too a la Mandakini in Ram Teri Ganga Maili. To this, the girl says, “Yes, I might go the Mandakini way, but the scene will not be an exact copy.”

Poonam, who is open to taking up regional projects, says a Bengali film is welcome. “I have heard a lot about Bengali films and Tollywood directors are welcome to approach me,” she says.
