Actress Pooja Chopra, who features in Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaari, says it was a huge compliment for her when the filmmaker got her on board for the movie without an audition. Pooja was earlier a part of Pandey’s short film Ouch.

“I think it is a huge compliment that he showed faith in me and trusted me to play such a strong character. When we were doing workshops, he praised me for my work. But the fact that he called me for his next film without an audition, that’s a huge compliment,” she said.

Was there performance pressure when working with a filmmaker like Pandey?
“I was very happy because I felt the pressure during ‘Ouch’ and he had seen my potential and talent at that time. I just didn’t want to disappoint him and his fate in me. And I am glad to have had the chance to work with him again.”
