Says she,

I got this film only because of Neil. He is one of my oldest friends and he recommended my name to the director Susi Ganeshan.

Not just this, the friendship between the stars goes a long way. Pooja also said that her upcoming role was a bit tough to play and the actor helped her with the finer nuances of her character.

She says,

I was a bit apprehensive, as I was required to enact many emotional scenes and recite some Urdu dialogues also. Neil is a sweetheart. During our outdoor shoot even though I would feel so sleepy, he would make sure I rehearsed my lines from 6 am to 10 am.
