Model-turned-actress Poonam Pandey, who is famous for skin show and sharing raunchy images on the social media, says that she doesn't have famous surnames like Kapoor or Khan but she is a hard worker.
"Neither do I belong to a filmy background nor I am a Kapoor or a Khan but I am a hard worker. It's all my hard work that I have come this far. I used created controversies of course to gain the limelight. You (media) people made me. Today I thought to do something better," Poonam said.
She made this comment at the press conference of her forthcoming short film "The Weekend".
Further, Poonam, while remarking on the recent trend of women-centric films in Bollywood, said that if audience is accepting such films then there’s no need to do controversy.
"It's a good thing that Bollywood is making more women-centric films. And while the audience is accepting well, then why should I do controversy. But jokes apart, I did 'The Weekend' because the audience is liking those films. Things are changing. So why not do something better?," she said.
The "Nasha" actress also confessed that her statement “I would strip naked if India won the 2011 Cricket World Cup” was a strategy to get work in films.
"People give 200 auditions out there, I've seen it. I just chose the shortcut. People ask me why I do all these things. I say to them it's my decision what to do and I am happy with what I do."
Speaking about her upcoming film ‘The Weekend’, Poonam said, "It's not a porn film. It is a full-fledged film in terms of acting and content. Though you may think if Poonam Pandey has done it, but it is a complete film."
‘The Weekend’ is reportedly a horror short film which has been co-produced by Poonam with Suresh Nakum under the banner The World Networks. It is directed by Aryan Singh, and will hit the screens on September 24.
