Actor Pooja Dey, who made her acting debut with reality show Dating in the Dark, and was further seen in the web series Gandii Baat Season 5 speaks about her struggle to prove herself as an actor. As she has been receiving offers only for bold and sleazy content.
Talking about her journey after getting a break in Ekta Kapoor's erotica series Gandii Baat, Pooja says, " I got a big break as a lead in the season 5 of the popular series. It was a life-changing part for me because I have never played such an important part before. I was feeling a bit of pressure and was nervous because it was a bold show and I was playing the role of a lesbian, but it came out pretty well. The audience actually liked it. But after that, I was only being approached for plenty of bold scenes and sleazy scenes. And it was very shocking."

Adding to the same she says, "I believe that my body isn't the only thing I can show on the screen; making out isn't the only thing I can do as a character. The industry has this thing where if they see you in one particular genre, they try to give you the same character over and over again with different names. Even though Gandii Baat was a big break for me, I can't do the same role again."

Lastly, expressing her opinion on the bold content and its acceptance in public, Pooja says, "As we have become relatively progressive, bold scenes have become common these days. But there are some people who just want to add bold, sleazy scenes just to attract the audience. As an actor, I will only choose those scripts where it is necessary for the story to show some bold scenes or without which the story won't run ahead. If the scenes are unnecessarily added I won't do it."
