Revealing about Pooja Hegde’s character in the upcoming film Valmiki, director Harish said, “Pooja Hegde is the most important character in the second half, she will be a complete surprise. That is why I am not revealing much about her. However, her character and song are only put in because the story demands it, not for commercial reasons. Apart from the Velluvachi Godaramma remix, the film also has four other songs, and a few action episodes.”
