Pooja Batra trains in mixed martial arts, keen on action films
Mumbai, June 24 (IANS) Actress Pooja Batra says that she is training for mixed martial arts and is eager to do action films.

Best remembered for acting in films such as “Virasat” and “Haseena Maan Jaayegi”, Pooja went away from the spotlight in the mid-2000s.
Asked about her absence from the industry, she said: “I’m in Hollywood right now. I’m in a Hollywood film titled ‘One Under The Sun’ which had premiered at Cannes. Maybe that’s why you see less of me. But I had done ‘ABCD 2’ last year and this year I have done a Punjabi film, ‘Killer Punjabi’.”
