The film's producer, Vipul Shah, has reportedly given the former Miss India a list of 150 movies to watch and learn from.
"Vipul sir wants me to see all kinds of films and understand acting in depth, because if the choice is left to me, I only land up watching romantic comedies," said Pooja.
"I've already started doing my homework and watched films like Milk and The Help," she added.
Pooja made her Bollywood debut with the action-packed Commando, which featured Vidyut Jammwal in the lead. Its sequel too has Vidyut.
