Gorgeous Poonam Dhillon revealed how she got the golden opportunity to collaborate with Yash Chopra at such a young age. The actress talked about her early days in showbiz. In addition, she told how she embarked on the journey while she was only in school. She was elated to have done her first project with Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjeev Kumar, Hema Malini and Shashi Kapoor. Even further, the actress revealed she had all plans to resume her studies after her first film. But as fate would have it, her path diverged to a brighter world.
Poonam Dhillon Reveals how she embarked on her journey:
In an interview with a news portal, Poonam said, “I was studying in a school in Chandigarh when Yash Chopra discovered me and cast me for Trishul. The movie starred big actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjeev Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Hema Malini amongst others and he was looking to cast a fresh face alongside them. He had just seen my photos and he came over to convince me and my parents. I was just 15 and a half at that time and my plan was to only complete this film and return to Chandigarh to resume my education.”
Furthermore, she added that Yash Chopra tempted her with Noorie. The Former Miss India (1977) also reminisced the memorable song she did with Jackie Shroff. She said, “Jackie and I have an joke that dogs are lucky for me and this is from the time we shot for one of our most memorable songs for Teri Meherbaniyan. Both our characters die and a dog who was actually the lead character of this film is imagining a romantic tale between us in this song. Apart from being an equally sweet and romantic track, it was by far the most unique song I had ever shot for and it turned out to be a hit. My second film Noorie too had a part involving a dog and I am just grateful for having that song sung so beautifully. Truly, dogs are quite lucky for me.”
