Ever since Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was released, back in 1999, almost the entire world became a fan of the stars - Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The two became one of the fieriest onscreen couples of the tinsel town, hence, people having a crush on them, was pretty common and one of them was Commando fame, Pooja Chopra. In an interview with a daily, Chopra revealed that she had a crush on the Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam couple. While asking if she is a movie buff, Pooja said that she doesn’t idolise anybody from films but Salman and Aishwarya were her favourites along with Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio.
“I don’t think I idolised anybody from films because my aspirations weren’t to be an actor at all. But I did have some favourites even then. I was in love with Leonardo Dicaprio. I could give an arm and a leg to him. My cupboard and bookshelves were plastered with posters of him all over. From Bollywood, I had a huge crush on Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan,” she told ETimes. She also said that while growing up, she has watched some iconic film like Dil Toh Pagal Hai, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Rang De Basanti, Josh, and Titanic. “I vividly remember watching these films and getting hugely influenced. But I can't say that I was a movie buff,” she added.
Pooja Chopra was crowned as Miss India but did not aspire to become an actor but her goal was something else. “My goal was only to win the Miss India pageant and represent my country at international pageants like Miss World,” Pooja said.
